One win from promotion!

Hull have beaten Lincoln and Accrington have held Sunderland 3-3 draw. Win on Tuesday at home to Doncaster and Posh are in the Championship.

Brilliant commitment at Posh from the end to keep the ball up the right end of the field. For all the Charlton possession, Posh did not let them create any chances. It feels so close now.

Charged down at the back again by JCH. Brilliant.

Posh pressure Pearce in the corner, his clearance loops upo into the air, Amos is unsure whether to come out and JCH nips in, he loops it to Szmodics who shoots first time but it hits the post of an open goal. Agonizing.


Posh are everywhere now, sprinting for every ball, closing down. They know how important this could be.

Not a single white shirt in the box, Posh just try and keep it in the corner and Burrows wins a free-kick.

Posh corner now, JCH hits it at Pearce.

Good play from Burrows and Butler, holding the ball in the corner and the subsequent clearance gives Posh a throw.
