  • 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

Outswinger, Thompson tries to rescue but Oxford clear it away.

great run from Dembele into the box from the left, he pops it off to Ward and his shot is blocked by 2 diving bodies, corner.

Posh’s turn to just knock the ball around, Kent bundled over by Taylor in his own half.

More Oxford possession, which Posh don’t seem too intent on stopping. Going nowhere at the moment though.

Oxford keeping the ball in the early stages, Beevers heads out a long ball looking for Taylor.

More poor play around the area, Joe Ward pulls out of a 50-50 and Oxford can cross, Brown side foot passes out to Dembele, just but he takes a bad touch allowing Brannagan to take the ball off him and shoot over.

Straight into the keeper’s hands from Ward, poor.

Posh corner.
