  • 3pm kick-off
  • Jack Marriott set to return to the squad
  • Steven Benda in contention to make Posh debut
  • Posh can move level with Reading in 21st with a win
  • West Brom haven’t won any of their last five
  • The Baggies was only scored 31 in 26 league games but have the division’s best defence

Quite hard to believe Posh have thrown it away to that extent. To lose that game against that uninspiring, slow West Brom 3-0 really isn’t good enough but the ball never stuck upfront and in the end you were just waiting for them to score. West Brom deserve it you have to say, Posh did nothing.

Kent gets a yellow. Silly kick on Robinson.

I make that their 4th but Fellows has come on for Grant. They get an extra one because Posh did.

Simple ball over the top of Beevers. Diangana beats him with ease and puts it into the opposite corner to Grant. Posh have given up, that’s poor.

Posh are beaten now. Livermore wins the ball from Taylor in the midfield, slides a ball into Grant on the left of the pitch. He goes past Taylor and slots it into the far corner, away from Benda. It all came from Posh rushing the free-kick and giving it away.

Fourth sub for Posh Ward comes on for Burrows right after he wins a free-kick from Furlong wrestling him to the ground. Ronnie was taken off under the concussion rules, so it did not count as a change.
