The Robins took advantage of Lee Tomlin's early dismissal to record only their sixth win of the season and move off the bottom, above both Barnsley and Posh.

Sam Baldock scored twice for City and both Paul Anderson and Stephen McManus were also on target.

McInnes said: "We owed our home fans a big performance and that's what we gave them.

"We were the better team apart from a five or ten minute spell after the sending-off, which seemed to affect us more than them.

"We were positive in all aspects of our play and it was a huge result for us. The sending-off made it difficult for Peterborough, but we were already on top at that point.

"It was a huge result for us and one we must use as a springboard. I'm certain we have what it takes to get out of trouble in the New Year."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
