Peterborough United's Emirates FA Cup second round tie at the Weston Homes Stadium will be screened on BT Sport at 5.30pm on Saturday November 28.

The home team secured their spot in the second round with a 2-1 victory at Oxford United on Saturday, November 8.

Speaking after the second round draw, Posh manager Darren Ferguson said: "First and foremost, we are pleased that we have a home tie because we have had and will have a lot of travelling to do and with the lockdown, the last thing you want is an away tie miles from home with the lack of hotels being available.

"We certainly won't be underestimating the opposition, they caused one of the shocks of round one by going to Wigan, a side in our league and coming back from 2-0 down to win the game 3-2."

Posh suffered a defeat at the hands of Crewe Alexandra over the weekend, unable to come back from the two goals scored against them in the first half. They remain at the top of the Sky Bet League One table by a single point, above Hull City.

Last week, Ferguson was named Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for October. He led the team to an unbeaten run through the month.
