  • 3-0 L
  • Ferguson takes charge of record 492nd Posh match
  • Posh looking to break spell of four successive league defeats
  • All of Posh’s four points have come at home
  • Marriott ruled out with long-term hamstring injury, Randall out for 10 weeks
  • Birmingham sit 7th on 11 points
  • Troy Deeney could make first start for the Blues

Posh have been excellent and so good value for that. Still technically in the bottom 3 because of a late Swansea equaliser at Luton but Derby’s incoming deduction will sent them below. Still, a day to enjoy Posh were absolutely good value for that.

Well held by Cornell

Yellow for Butler, foul on Sanderson as he tries to stretch his legs on the right. Good crossing chance.

Good tactical foul from Thompson on Chong on half way. A minute to go.

That’ll do, corner Posh from Ward’s cross, no rush.

Posh desperately deserve this clean sheet. Another great tackle from Butler on Chong in the box keeps them out.

Arrrgh, Kent gives the ball away again at the back and they get the chance to swing in another corner when Thompson makes the block. Fortunately, Posh head out well once again.

Cornell with the great save again. Kent is beaten by a cross and it falls to Deeney, he shoots high but Cornell throws up an arm to tip over. Corner comes to nothing.
