“We could’ve had a few more, but let’s not be greedy it’s three points, we move on and we are giving ourselves a chance.

“We’re a point off Doncaster now, who have a game in hand, but there’s plenty of football still to play.

“The conditions were absolutely terrible. 

“Peterborough will feel that the goals were poor, but we withheld the storm from them early on.

“It was a tough game because they’re a good team and they started really brightly

“I know Darren [Ferguson] well, he likes to go for the jugular, they did that again today, they try and blitz teams and gain the upper hand, but we dealt with it well

“Burge made some good saves and then we started to get hold of the ball a bit better and establish a foothold in the game.

“The only disappointment is that our energy levels sapped in the final stages.

"When they go and get that goal it makes it harder because we should have been in control for the last four minutes.

“It was unfortunate because there were some really great performances all over the park, and we controlled the game.”
