  • 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

Ball comes out to Brown, far too casual again. Oxford work the ball to the right and Brannagan shoots just wide of Pym’s far post, he was scrambling.

Posh struggling for that final pass at the moment. Corner from 35 yards out after the ball ricochets off Hamilton.

Cleared out well by a towering header by JCH,

Taylor shoots from the right, tight angle, Pym saves and Kent puts behind for a corner.

WHAT A CHANCE. Posh break from the corner, Hamilton plays an unbelievable ball to get Dembele in one-on-one he pushes the ball past Stevens but there’s a lot of power on it and he’s taken too close to the byline and the angle is against him and he hits the post and he tries to get the ball over the line from the left of the box.

Brown dawdles and is robbed by Sykes, Taylor shoots, blocked by Beevers, corner.

JCH will stay on but he was definitely showing the physio his lower leg but Long is replaced at the back by Jamie Hanson.

Dembele makes another dangerous run into the box, cuts it back to JCH, gets tackled as he hits it but the shot gets away and goes well over the bar. JCH and Long getting treatment now.

JCH doesb’t look entirely comfortable out there, a few little hops and a hold of the foot every now and then.
