Chorley celebrate wildly at the final whistle. They’re into the third round for the first time in third history and deservedly so. Posh were so poor and never looked like troubling their National League North visitors. They hit Posh with two goals in three minutes and there were signs that was coming in the first half. A shameful day for Posh who need to have a long hard look at themselves. 


Posh finally make a chance. Dembele cuts into the box after a nice move with Mason, Urwin has to save well from a tight angle. The resulting corner comes to nothing for a foul by Beevers. 

Chorley bring on Adam Henley and Lewis Reilly for Ollie Shenton and Harry Cardwell 

Beevers wins a knock-down, Kanu gets onto it and fires away a shot but three Chorley players are round him to block. 

Eisa and Kanu try and play a 1-2 but the ball has too much pace on it and Urwin claims. Beevers has now moved up front. Desperation time. 

Played short ball in the box comes on nothing after Taylor’s knock-down. 

Shenton pulls back Brown just into the Posh half. Free kick 

Taylor dawdles on the ball in the box, gets robbed and Brown picks up a yellow brining down Leather as he tries to break.
