Posh - Darren Explains Weak Side!
Paying £20 for a ticket last night several supporters were a little miffed to find that Posh fielded an under-strength side against Sunderland.
With the big kick-off only a few days away, it is perhaps understandable that Darren Ferguson didn`t want to risk too many of his regulars so close to Saturday.
Explaining his decision, Darren has commented to the local media,
'I was never going to risk players. The lads who needed time on the pitch had a game.
'I told all the lads involved to make sure they impressed me to give themselves a chance of being in contention for Derby and they did that on the whole.
'There were plenty of positives. Our shape and balance were both good and I thought James McKeown was outstanding in goal.
'Pre-season has to go down as a success. We go into the season with only one injury, we have learned as we have gone along and we are ready for the Championship.'
Bring it on Darren, we can`t wait!
