Lewis undaunted by Toon trip

Goalkeeper Joe Lewis is certain his Peterborough side will not suffer from an attack of stage fright when then they take on Newcastle at St James' Park.

Posh travel north to face the Championship leaders on the back of three consecutive defeats that has left them second bottom in the Championship table. The match is set to be played in front of an estimated 40,000 plus attendance - the biggest ever league crowd any Peterborough side has faced in the club's history.

But the 22-year-old told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph: "There is no way that is going to happen - not a chance. There was a massive 30,000 plus crowd and not an empty seat to be seen at Derby on the opening day of the season."

He added: "We came through that test well and were really unlucky to lose the game. Newcastle will be under a lot more pressure than us on the day. There is a huge level of expectation up there, and everyone on the outside will see this fixture as a simple three points for Newcastle.

"But I am certain that won't be the case. Even if Newcastle do get the win, we certainly won't have made it easy for them. We will stick to the work ethic that has served us so well during two great seasons and we will continue to believe in ourselves to get out of this predicament."
