LIVE BLOG: Middlesbrough vs Posh

Last updated: Saturday, 16 October, 2021, 16:59

  • 2-0 L
  • Posh still looking for first away points
  • Beevers expected to return to the squad after injury
  • Middlesbrough set to have just 15 fit players, including 3 goalkeepers
  • Boro sit 15th but have scored one less goal than Posh (11 to 12)

Coburn finishes the game. Szmodics is crowded out on the left, Boro come forward, Payero cuts the ball back across the box, rather easily after Beevers sells himself, and he rolls in. Simple.

Busby has had an absolute shocker today. Knight protecting the ball on the Boro right is just pushed over by Tavernier, he waves for a goal kick. Incredible.

Five minutes for Posh to find something, not looking likely.

Kanu replaces Thompson and Siliki replaces Watmore.

Such a blow because that is so needless, the ball was going straight out of play. Posh then overplay it on the left when they had options in the box for once and Szmodics puts the ball straight out play.

McNair sends Cornell the wrong way.

So silly from Beevers and Thompson, both haul their men to the ground when the corner is so overhit and going out of play, not sure which one its given for.
