LIVE: Posh vs Spurs U21

Oh Talley’s given it away again, a terrible pass out of the back right to Veliz but Spurs again waste the opening as he sends a cross straight out of play.

Talley gets away with one, comes out of his area to head clear a long ball but only heads it right to Donely 35 yards out, the Spurs player slips though and drags his shot well wide.

Spurs playing plenty of short passes and building slowly up the pitch.

Posh passing more direct and dynamic.

Randall pulls down Lyons-Foster 35 yards out but the free-kcik from Donley goes right into the wall.

First we’ve seen from Posh and it’s a great run and trickery from Ajiboye on the right on the box, cuts inside and plays a great ball across to Sturge. He can’t sort his feet out though to get a clean shot at goal.
