Alex Ferguson watches his son's Posh team lose their third successive match. West Bromwich Albion deservedly lead at half-time following goals from Gera Zoltán and Nathan Ellington. Aaron Mclean has the ball in the net following a show-boating pass by Chris Whelpdale, but his effort is ruled offside. Charlie Lee has two great opportunities early in the second half but is unable to find the target. Alfie Potter becomes the first graduate of the new youth team to make a first team appearance, replacing the tired Whelpdale. Josh Low is only able to find the side-netting as Posh look to get back into the game, but Dean Kiely is rarely troubled.
