Peterborough   2 - 1   Brentford

Peterborough 2-1 Brentford

Peterborough 2-1 Brentford

Jonathan Obika's stoppage-time goal gave managerless Peterborough victory over Brentford.

Posh took the lead through Grant McCann's penalty after George Boyd had been fouled by Pim Balkestein.

The hosts lost Gabriel Zakuani to a dislocated shoulder and were pegged back when Marc Laird slotted home after a goalmouth scramble.

But Posh, with managerial candidate Darren Ferguson watching, won the game when Obika finished from eight yards.

Former manager Ferguson had held talks with Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony earlier on Tuesday over a return to London Road.

Gary Johnson left London Road on Monday after only nine months in charge.


Peterborough United caretaker manager David Oldfield told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"They showed a real group mentality and some strong mentality.

"I think once that equalising goal went in they had to rally again and I feel in the end we got our rewards.

"It was a slightly strange situation because I felt the previous manger and staff had done a really good job."
