Peterborough   0 - 1   Bristol City

Peterborough 0-1 Bristol City

Peterborough 0-1 Bristol City

Substitute David Clarkson's second-half header gave Bristol City three points against rock-bottom Peterborough.

City dominated the early stages of the game, with Joe Lewis forced into a double save from Liam Fontaine and Danny Haynes.

The visitors' dominance was rewarded when Paul Hartley delivered a corner and Clarkson rose highest to head home.

Posh's best chance came with two minutes remaining when Fontaine blocked Lee Frecklington's goal-bound header.


Peterborough manager Jim Gannon:
"There was nothing in a game of little quality and it was very disappointing to concede in the way we did from a set-piece.

"We spent hours studying videos and reports of Bristol City in those situations to try and ensure that didn't happen.

"The majority of players worked hard for the cause and looked motivated, but we ran out of ideas in the end."

Bristol City caretaker boss Keith Millen:
"I felt we were well worth the win in a game in which I always thought the first goal would be crucial.

"David has had a frustrating time since he came to the club, but he is an excellent finisher and he took his chance well.

"I'm obviously very happy with the way things have gone since I took charge and I'll be sitting down with the chairman this week to see where we go from here.

"I feel I have the experience and knowledge required for a managerial job at this level - and I absolutely love working at Bristol City."
