Great save Bursik as Gillingham look to seal the deal. He’s told to go into the corner but he cuts back and runs into the left of the box and lashes a shot towards the far post.
That’s a real chance there, Dembele creates panic by running into the box, he lays if off to as many of 4 players that could have run onto it but it’s Hamilton with the effort, who somehow manages to connect but miss the target.
It goes to the far post onto the head of Taylor but its a weak header and its guided to Bonham more than anything.
Posh come again, Ward wins a corner on the right.
Superb block from Hamilton’s drilled shot on the edge of the box, just before that the ball had found its Dembele on the right of the box but his pull back was just behind JCH, Burrows manages to rescue it and find Hamilton.

Good delivery again by Butler, goes low to Thompson, who goes with his foot but shoots over.
Posh free-kick on the right of the box, floated in by Ward to Thompson at the back post. He gets his head there but can;t generate the pace back across goal and its blocked out for a corner.
Posh survive a spell of Gillingham pressure and try to hit back but Posh again fail to spot the run of Dembele on 2 occasions and the ball is cleared.
Yellow for Dempsey for dissent after he gives away a silly foul on Taylor.
