EARLIER THIS YEAR, former St. Patrick’s Athletic midfielder Chris Forrester stepped out for Peterborough in an FA Cup clash with West Brom and made a huge impression.

Perhaps lightning is about to strike twice.

Posh got the better of Notts County in their Cup clash this evening and the 2-0 win assures them of a high-profile 3rd Round meeting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next month.

It gives the 24-year-old Dubliner another opportunity to deliver on a big stage.

He enjoyed a magnificent debut season and, in the summer, he was made the club’s skipper and committed to a long-term deal.

Already this term he’s scored three times and the side currently sit in sixth place in League One.
