Boos ring out

All kinds of chaos was caused, it bobbles around unti Butler gets a shot away, well blocked.

Gomes hauls down Szmodics. Free-kick taken quickly to Dembele. He shoots, shot blocked for a corner. He’s taking it.

2 to go but no quality forthcoming.

Morris fires a shot at Cornell from the left. He saves, it comes out to Butler, who has so much time but he chooses to spin and kick it out for a corner. He’s lucky the ball in is overhit.

Williams limps off, replaced by Hondermarck. Butler had just had a great crossing chance but the ball balloons off his foot and out of play.

All Posh now, Posh clearly the better side and making all the running.

Free-kick dinked to the far post, Knight is there but the connection is poor and Barnsely clear.

Banrsnley. really holding on now, Gomes with a desperate pullback on JCH. Yellow card.
