Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson is delighted fans are to be back at football matches - and they could be admitted into the League One fixture at AFC Wimbledon next week.

The Dons are at League Two side Barrow in a delayed FA Cup first round match tonight (November 26). If they win they tackle Crawley in a second round tie on Sunday meaning the Posh trip to Plough Lane will be pushed back 24 hours to Wednesday, December 2.

Lockdown is over from that day and South London, like Peterborough, has been handed tier two restrictions meaning 2,000 fans are allowed into matches.

Ferguson said: “It’s great news re the fans. I’m sure everyone in football will be pleased to see them back into grounds. Even 2,000 will make a big difference.

“The fans need to get out and watch football for health reasons as much as anything else.”

Posh are expected to release details re fans admission into matches soon. The first match at the Weston Homes Stadium after lockdown is Tuesday, December 8 against West Ham United Under 21s in the Papa John’s Trophy.

Posh have 3,400 season ticket holders.
