Woking are aiming to take the game to Peterborough United on Tuesday night with Cards boss Anthony Limbrick confident that if they get their tactics right they can beat their League One hosts on their own pitch.

Peterborough earned a FA Cup second round replay after holding Woking to a 1-1 draw at the Laithwaite Stadium last Saturday. The hosts had the better chances, including a saved penalty, but found themselves behind after Ryan Tafazolli converted following a free-kick on 24 minutes.




However, with less than ten minutes to play, Joe Ward turned home Nathan Ralph’s cross to put the Cards in the draw for the third round and book a replay for Tuesday night at London Road.

The Surrey club have history of stunning Football League clubs after dispatching with League Two side Bury 3-0 at Giggs Lane in a first round replay in this year’s competition.

And despite having lost the element of surprise, Limbrick is feeling confident ahead of Tuesday, insisting the pressure is on Posh.

“If you watch us play it’s clear how we like to do things and we know we might have adapt our game plan when we go up there depending on their personnel and what they do,” he said. “We are expecting a different game at Peterborough and one that will be hard for us because they won’t want to have the same performance as they did on Sunday against us.

“That will put them under pressure and the old saying about pressure is true; there was no pressure on us for the home game and there will be even less pressure on us away from home.

“We are going up there to try to win the game, there’s no doubt about that. We will try to win and put in a performance to take the game to them but we know how difficult it is going to be so we won’t underestimate Peterborough.”
