  • Posh held to goalless draw
  • Dembele misses one-on-one after going too wide once rounding the keeper
  • Excellent late save prevents JCH from stealing all 3 points
  • Oxford fail to create any openings of note
  • Posh still top by 3 points
  • Jack Taylor absent due to suspected niggle

Lincoln lose 2-1 at home to Fleetwood and Hull win 2-0 against 10-man Rochdale so Posh are three clear at the top but still have two games on Hull.

Not the worst point against a good Oxford side but the slight frustration being that Posh had the better chances. Dembele will really rue taking the ball too wide from that one-on-one.

What a good reaction save, the keeper comes out to claim but JCH gets there first but he is able to react and beat away the ball. Phwoar that was close.

Eisa cones on for Szmodics.

Posh corner, Szmodics’ cross blocked.

Goes wide t Ward who plays a teasing low ball into the box, last ditch clearance from Atkinson.

Posh free-kick just inside the Oxford half, the box is packed.

Final ball consistently going wanting for both sides. Agyei is looking a threat against Beevers though, exposing his lack of pace.

Kent tries to bring the ball out of defence but loses it, Shodipo picks up and shoots over.
