MacAnthony said: “This lad took a pay cut & agent (also took) a pay cut on future agent fees to come to us & make wages work within our budget. Love seeing that kind of commitment from young footballers.”

There was a boost for the Posh relegation fight last night when Reading were thumped 7-0 by Fulham at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Reading are three points ahead of Posh who now have a game in hand. Fulham are up to second.
