What a disappointment.

Just the matter of playing out time now, Posh look like they’re still trying but too little too late.

Dele-Bashiru given the freedom of the stadium on the edge of the box, no pressure on him. He takes his time to line up his shot, Taylor gives to block it, it hits him and ricochets in. Pym rooted to the spot.

Posh need some inspiration here, a lot of the ball but not a lot of ideas. Reading sitting deep

Butler off, Tomlinson on

Posh trying to build some momentum and Reading starting to retreat. Butler puts in a great ball right onto the head of JCH, he has time to ready himself but still plants the header well wide.

Szmodics does come on, a frustrating blow.
