Sheffield United picked up their first away point of the season against high-flying Posh and thoroughly deserved it was too!
The Caretaker Manager Speaks
Chris Morgan took charge of his last Sheffield United match before Nigel Clough takes over and he got another thoroughly deserved point for the Blades.
Facing a team looking for their seventh straight win was a daunting prospect but in truth, Posh have been struggling more and more as the weeks go by to breakdown the opposition so it came as no surprise to many that the winning run would end soon.
"It was an excellent point against a team that has been absolutely flying of late and has won seven of their last eight home matches," said Morgan. "We had to be professional and disciplined in order to build on Saturday's win and we did setup a certain way to try and stifle Peterborough initially.
"We also knew with the pace we have in our team that we could cause problems on the counter attack and I thought at times we did.
"I am going to be biased, but I do believe we had the best chances in the game. I thought Lyle's shot was in all the way and I think the woodwork is still shaking now! Lyle has found some confidence from somewhere and I am delighted to see him starting to find his best form following quite a high profile summer move from Falkirk.'
Morgan was full of praise for the whole team after becoming only the second side this season to shut out Posh: "I must heap praise on the team again because to a man they stuck to the plan that we gave them and Jamie [Murphy] could have nicked a winner late on.
"The lads deserve a lot of credit; we have shown we have the ability to dig in and that there is a real spirit and character within this group of players, that pleases me moving forward.
"To get our first clean sheet of the season at free scoring Peterborough will give confidence another boost, that is for sure."
