Peterborough United are again one of the front runners in the League One ‘bad boy league.’

Posh were bottom of the League One Fairplay League last season after collecting 105 yellow cards and seven red cards.

This season Posh have picked up 12 cautions and seen two players sent off, Jack Baldwin and Andrew Hughes.

Posh are joint third with local rivals Northampton in the current bad boys table. Charlton currently top the Fair Play League having collected just three cautions all season.

Hughes was dismissed in the last minute of Saturday’s (September 10) 2-2 home draw with Port Vale and will be suspended from this Saturday’s (September 20) League One trip to Sheffield United. Posh did appeal the red card, but it was rejected.

Jerome Binnom-Williams will be favourite to replace Hughes. Binnom-Williams played well in today’s (September 13) reserve team win over Southend.

“Jerome did very well going forward today,” Posh first-team boss Grant McCann stated.

“Of course he will be in my thinking for Sheffield. I brought him to the club to play.”
