Basic Information

Date 29th November 2006.
Stadium Memorial Stadium, Horfield, Bristol, England
Competition League Trophy (southern section quarter-final).
Attendance 3,621 (103 away).
Officials Paul Taylor.

After winning five in a row, Peterborough lose at the Memorial Stadium. Missing Aaron Mclean, who has scored in his last four matches, The Posh pay the price for a poor first-half. Bristol Rovers's on-loan striker Stuart Nicholson finds the net after 29 minutes, but £200,000 Rickie Lambert is unable double the lead. Despite enjoying plenty of possession, the three Peterborough strikers never really look like scoring. Nevertheless, the League Trophy defeat is trivial, as all eyes are on Saturday's FA Cup trip to Tranmere Rovers.
