LIVE: Posh vs Oxford

Posh are protecting Kioso here, he;s just gone through Goodrham with a sliding tackle that probably was a foul, Oxford are also trying to get him sent off.

Great effort from Poku, could have eased all the nerves. Dug out from the edge of the box and it's a great diving save Beadle, right into the corner it was heading.

Posh have retreated right back, there's nothing going forward anymore.

Back underway, looks like Posh are just trying to slow things down a bit, Oxford attacking with much more purpose.

Rodrigues off, Goodrham on

Joe Bennett also on Thorniley off.

Rodrigues goes down off the ball. Physio on.

Posh get themselves into an almighty mess.

Gave the ball away on multiple occasions to put themselves in trouble.

First Kioso gave it away to Murphy on the left of the box he had to made a diving block.

Then Randall loses the ball on the edge of the box, ball sent in that Bilokapic has to punch away. Falls to Mcguane and he rifles a shot towards the top corner, Bilokapic has to get up brilliantly to save.

Kioso takes a yellow for fouling murphy.

Oxford were breaking after Jones gave the ball away on the counter and Posh were caught out of their shape.

Poku wins a corner on the right.
