The match has been moved to accommodate the hosts’ own FA Cup fifth round tie against Nottingham Forest. In the league, the Terriers are flying high in third and can move into the automatic promotion places with victory, albeit having played five games more.

Posh are looking to haul themselves into 22nd but may be without Joe Ward, who picked up a dead leg against Manchester City.

90 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Great sliding tackle Beevers right at the end to stop Ward running through the heart of the Posh defence and making in 4.

90 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Both are up now. Nicholls doesn’t look great but he isn't going to be needed.

90 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

War hurls a ball into the box. Nicholls comes flying out to punch. He does to but takes out Pearson and Nicholls stays down himself.

90 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Even then, Huddersfield pass it inside and go all the way back to the goalkeeper. Just to see out time.

89 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Huddersfield free-kick 30 yards out on the right. Knight slides in, didn’t look like a great one but referee recognises it’s an easy night for him and keeps the card in his pocket.

86 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Huddersfield knocking the ball around nicely. Posh pressing the most they have done all night but Huddersfield are hardly playing at full tilt.

81 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

This game is just meandering to a conclusion now. I sense Huddersfield could have really filled their boots tonight if they had wanted to. Posh have had enough encouragement this half especially but it’s the same old story. Where is the quality to score a goal going to come from?

79 mins 3-0 Huddersfield

Finally some good work from Coulson. Tackles Thomas on the left, slides a ball for Marriott to run onto and shoot. It’s always on his wrong foot though and the block is made. The corner is well ehaded out.
