Key Events

  • 6-2 Sheffield United FT
  • Posh thumped by rampant Sheffield United side
  • Before today, Sheffield United had just one goal and two points in the league
  • Posh went in level at the break after Marriott’s first goal in a year
  • Posh conceded two goals in three minutes twice in the second half
  • Late JCH penalty was nothing more than a consolation
  • Posh slip to 23rd in the league

So easy. Billy Sharp turns away from Knight, mid way into the Posh half, passes to McBurnie, who spins and rolls it into the path of the onrushing Osburn as he breezes past Ward. Buries it past Pym into the left hand side of the net.

Marcy from the officials

Not sure there’s going to be enough time for a sensational comeback as Freeman sees another shot blocked, he’s been the centre of everything since he came on, blocked. From the resulting corner, Baldock is just ignored as he wiats for the short pass, fortunately his ball in is well over everyone.

As the game might be finally settling down, it’s a good time to say that the penalty was the foul was the first one the referee has given Posh in the entire match. He’s had plenty of opportunities aswell.

It’s nearly 6-2. Butler and Kent do their best to hold up Baldock and Freeman and Baldock on the edge of the box, they get drawn to the ball and Baldock knocks it off Freeman who has a free go at the top right corner from the edge of the box, however, he puts is over. He’ll think he should have scored that.
