McCann not in­ter­ested in re­venge

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Posh man­ager Grant McCann in­sists last sea­son’s dis­mal dis­play at home to Brad­ford City is ir­rel­e­vant as far as Satur­day’s League One re-match is con­cerned.

The Ban­tams bashed Posh 4-0in this fix­ture last sea­son, a re­sult that started their march to the League One play-offs.

But McCann (above) won’t be seek­ing re­venge for that re­sult on Satur­day as he won’t even men­tion it to his play­ers be­fore the game.

“Last sea­son’s re­sult means noth­ing on Satur­day,” McCann stated. “Brad­ford have a dif­fer­ent man­ager and dif­fer­ent play­ers and so do we.

“We didn’ t play well that day. Brad­ford were ex­cel­lent, but it won’t get a men­tion in my team-talk.

“I won’t use it as mo­ti­va­tion as it just isn’t rel­e­vant.

“Our mo­ti­va­tion will be putting on a good per­for­mance for our fans and to win for them.”

Posh also host Mill­wall in League One next Tues­day (Au­gust 16).
