LIVE: Posh vs Spurs U21

Posh go back to their usual four at the back formation with EMC as central striker.

Lanshear nearly on the scoresheet early with a great run and header from Santaigo’s cross.

Mothersille gone down a couple of times in the last few minutes, bit of cramp it looks like.

EMC coming on to replace him.

Dornelly coming onto replace Burrows

Spurs bring Soonsup-Bell off for Lankshear

Whata hit, Crichlow bursts into midfield, finds Randall. He lays it off to Poku, he takes a touch, turns away from his marker and belts a shot in the far right side of the net.

Posh gift the ball away right on the egde of the box again, it’s a good job Donely hasn’t get his shooting boots and blasts over from just inside the box.

Spurs send in a couple of corners are headed away. Still on top.

Poku not really got up to speed in this yet, Sputs looking dangerous down the left.

Spurs having a spell in the Posh half since the goal.

Talley nearly gifts a goal at one end and straight down the other end Keeley has a shocker when Jones hit a relatively tame effort at him and he allows it to burst through his hands and into the corner of the net.
