Basic Information

Stadium London Road, Peterborough, England
Competition League Two.
Attendance 4,405 (606 away).
Officials D. McDermid.

Posh announce the capture of Stevenage's George Boyd, Aaron Mclean and Craig Morgan join permanently, Gavin Strachan re-joins the club on-loan, and Dean Holden is shipped off to Falkirk. Things don't change on the pitch, however, as Keith Alexander's men lose their fifth consecutive match and have only scored 4 goals in the last 9. Walsall quickly prove why they're the league leaders, scoring 2 within the first 23 minutes. Alexander signals a return to 'horrible' football, “I know that won't please everyone, but that's what my teams traditionally have played like. I have never lost five games in a row and it hurts.”
