Fearsome firepower is taking Peterborough United to the Championship and it was evident again tonight (April 16) as Posh beat local rivals Northampton Town 3-1 at the Weston Homes Stadium to move level on points with League One leaders Hull City and a massive eight points clear of third-placed Sunderland.
Here are the PT player and manager ratings for the game.
Ratings key: 10-Brilliant, 9-Outstanding, 8-Very Good, 7-Good, 6-Okay, 5-Poor, 4-Dreadful.
JOSEF BURSIK: Cobblers saw a lot of the ball, but failed to work the Posh goalkeeper apart from an easy fourth minute save and a much more difficult stop late on. Beaten only by a penalty. Kicked the ball impressively and looks a very cool customer 6.5.
NATHAN THOMPSON: Seemed to be in the action for the entire 90 minutes whether he was defending stoutly or steaming forward from right back. Won the penalty that sealed the victory 7.5
DAN BUTLER: Excellent defensively and although his passing was inconsistent he delivered the cross for the opening goal 7.
FRANKIE KENT: He dominated the Cobblers attacking players, but his long-ball delivery was often delayed too long or over-hit 7.
