Ipswich   0 - 0   Peterborough

Ipswich Town 0-0 Peterborough Utd

Ipswich 0-0 Peterborough

Ipswich extended their unbeaten run to nine games after a goalless draw with fellow strugglers Peterborough.

The Tractor Boys remain in the bottom three on goal difference after Roy Keane's men missed a number of chances.

Grant Leadbitter and Jonathan Walters wasted good opportunities for Ipswich early on before Lee Frecklington went close for the visitors.

Stern John almost got the opener with a header and a shot, while Aaron Mclean was denied at the end for the Posh.


Ipswich boss Roy Keane:

"I don't think we played that well but we had some good chances.

"The fact we didn't take them was very frustrating and I'm getting fed up of using that word.

"We've got to start putting the ball in the back of the net and I don't just mean my strikers. I need my players to step up to the plate."

Peterborough boss Mark Cooper:
"It was a very resolute performance. The goalkeeper and centre-halves were outstanding.

"When you're in the position we're in and you come here, with the players they have, you have to respect that.

"We have to build on this. We mustn't think we can just turn up and it'll happen for us at Coventry on Saturday."
