  • 2-2 FT
  • Posh blow 2 goal lead to miss out on promotion
  • Ward and Szmodics put Posh 2-0 up in 20 minutes
  • Okenabirhie pulls one back for Donny before half-time.
  • Substitute Richards pulls Donny level as Posh produce poor second half
  • Posh now need a point against Lincoln to go up

The wait goes on.

A point against Lincoln is now needed.

High to JCH but he gets no power on his header into the ground.

CORNER. THAT HAS TO BE IT

Threatening to get away here. Posh can’t get through the lines.

Posh looking desperate now, too rushed. Burrows crosses over everyone with his wrong foot. Poor

Good defending from Wright on the left, outmuscles Burrows and wins the foul when he puts his arms on his back.

Kent dives in on Lokilo, from behind. Yellow card, nowhere near the leg-breaking challenge the Doncaster players are trying to convince the ref it was.

John-Jules scuffs over from Richards’ cut back, end-to-end stuff here.

That could have been something. Thompson picks up on the edge of his own box, plays a great ball all the way upfield to Szmodics, he takes a touch and gets caught Horton at right back, he cuts it back for Dembele but the ball gets caught under his feet when a shooting chance had really opened up He ends up skewing tamely wide.

Speared into the back post, punched away by Bursik.

Donny free-kick on the left. Good crossing chance. Foul by Kent on Lokilo.

Good effort! Ward forces Jones into a full-stretch save diving to his left.

Szmodics brought down from behind 25 yards out, centre of the goal.

Free-kick given away by John-Jules for a push in the back.
