Latics travel to the Abax Stadium, London Road to you and me, on Tuesday to face Peterborough United.

Latics and Peterborough have met 15 times down the years, all but one of those games coming in one of the bottom two divisions of the Football League.

Latics 9 wins, Peterborough 1, draws 5

The first meeting between the two clubs came back in 1970 in an FA cup 2nd round tie at Springfield Park, 17,180 spectators turned up to watch non-league Latics beat the Posh 2-1, with goals from Geoff Davis and a Jim Fleming penalty, to set up a 3rd round meeting against Manchester City away at Maine Road.

It was nine years before the two clubs met again, this time a Division 4 clash, Boxing Day 1979, when the Latics travelled to London Road and came back with another 2-1 victory, this time in front of a more modest 3,312 spectators.
