First long throw of the day from Charlton. Beevers rises magnificently and heads away.

Burrows on for Dembele as Posh look to dig in.

Good leap from Beevers but it safely goes to Amos, with noone gambling on it.

Szmodics works an opening in the box, shot blocked over the bar. Corner.

Inniss off for Famewo, like for like change. Washington also on for Morgan, subbing the sub.

Millar again, same position shoots, headed over by Taylor,

Strong run from Aneke sets Charlton off, goes out left to Millar, who cuts inside and finds Forster-Caskey. He shoots from just outside the box, it’s deflected by Reed and drops only just wide of the post. Heart in mouth moment.

Winger Gilbey withdrawn and topscorer Chuks Aneke comes on. Looks like they’re going 2 up top.

The ball is looped to Inniss and he just throws his hands up in the air and pats it down. He’s claiming he is being pushed by Beevers but the ref isn’t convinced. Doesn’t book him though.

Beevers penalised for a high-foot around 40 yards out, harsh since both had their feet up there. Fergie isn’t happy and gets a talking to from the ref.
