Middlesbrough   1 - 0   Peterborough

Middlesbrough 1-0 Peterborough

Middlesbrough 1-0 Peterborough

Barry Robson scored his first goal for Middlesbrough to sink bottom side Peterborough and maintain his side's Championship play-off challenge.

Robson, who joined Boro from Celtic in January, swept home Jonathan Franks' pull-back from 12 yards out.

Posh responded well and went close to levelling when Lee Frecklington's drive forced a fine stop from Danny Coyne.

Boro created little after the break and Posh almost snatched a point when Josh Simpson's shot was blocked on the line.


Middlesbrough manager Gordon Strachan:

"There's some people who will say that's a good three points or that it makes two home wins and they are right, that's good.

"But the standard of football wasn't what we wanted or what we expect.

"We have to thank the lads in the middle and the centre-backs in the last 15 minutes for keeping us in the game."

Peterborough manager Jim Gannon:

"We played some good passing football and we created a few good opportunities but didn't take them.

"We got into some threatening positions but perhaps we could have worked their keeper more and maybe we lack a physical presence up front.

"I am a little bit disappointed but take satisfaction from the way we played."
