Peterborough   2 - 1   Tranmere

Peterborough v Tranmere

Peterborough 2-1 Tranmere

An own goal from Tranmere striker Enoch Showunmi gifted all three points to promotion-chasing Peterborough.

The visitors took the lead when Showunmi played a through ball to John Welsh, who calmly slotted home.

George Boyd flicked on a Lee Tomlin cross to Grant McCann, who fired in from the edge of the area to equalise.

McCann then turned provider when his corner was inadvertently turned into his own goal by Showunmi, which handed the home side the win.


Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"The referee has made the right decision in getting this game on, but in hindsight I wouldn't have gone with all my creative players if I'd known yesterday that the pitch would be in such a state.

"You have to be adaptable though, and it's games like today which win you promotion.

"We want to try and play a particular way, but sometimes you just have leave your philosophy to one side and go and win the game."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"I think it's an indication of how far we've come that we're gutted, we've come to a place like Peterborough and we're so disappointed with a 2-1 defeat.

"We did well in the first half and we were disappointed to go in only 1-0 ahead. But in the first 10 minutes of the second half we let them come at us.

"You drop off and allow them to do that and I think that was our big mistake."
