Peterborough   1 - 0   QPR

Peterborough 1-0 QPR

Peterborough 1-0 QPR

Aaron Mclean struck the only goal of thee game to earn victory for Peterborough over nine-man QPR.

The winner came after only nine minutes when George Boyd picked out Mclean in the six-yard box for a simple finish.

Matt Connolly should have equalised when allowed a free header but he put the ball over the bar.

Mikele Leigertwood was sent off for a high challenge on Tommy Rowe and eight minutes before the end Peter Ramage was also dismissed after a second caution.

The win means new Posh manager Jim Gannon began his tenure in the perfect way - as he seeks to breathe life into the club's fight against relegation.

The former Stockport and Motherwell manager was appointed on Monday night to replace Mark Cooper, to become Peterborough's third manager of the season, and will have been impressed with the battling qualities on display.

The visitors' slide down the table looks set to continue, however, after a lifeless performance which saw Posh goalkeeper Joe Lewis untested throughout the 90 minutes.

However, despite picking up their first win since the start of December, Peterborough remain nine points adrift of safety at the foot of the table.


Peterborough manager Jim Gannon:
"Aaron justified his inclusion, not just with the goal but his overall enthusiasm.

"I came into the club this week and gave everyone a clean slate and he took his chance well.

"It was a new system for the players but they adapted well and deserved the win. It was a good display."

QPR boss Mick Harford refused to speak to the media after the game.
