  • 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

Thompson loops a long ball looking to Szmodics, tracking back Atkinson heads away but it only drops kindly to JCH but he lashes his 20-yard volley well over.

Oxford sub 82 mins

Dangerous winger Shodipo and target man Dan Agyei replace Barker and Taylor.

Back underway, Ward loops in a cross, dips at just the right time but noone is alive to it and Stevens is allowed to dive on top of it.

Reed takes a whack in the box, ref stops the game.

Decent effort from JCH, not too far over the top but Stevens never looked worried.

Yellow for Moore now with a dive in on Dembele. Closer to 30 yards this time, more central.

Ball goes near post from Ward to Kent. The ball ends up going wide and the ref points for a goal kick, Posh not happy. Looks as if it bounced off Kent onto the defender.

Free-kick o25 yards out, Gorrin puts out an arm as Szmodics flicks it over him. Yellow card.

Brown’s disappointing night is brought to an end by Louis Reed.

Great play from Beevers to make the block as Barker marauded forward into the box and unleashed a shot. The space presented itself because Thompson made a run deep into the Oxford half, supported by Ward.
