Andy Garner: Pleased with Derby's convincing victory over Peterborough

Goals from Craig Bryson, Chris Martin and Richard Keogh saw the Rams take control and despite Grant McCann converting a penalty for Posh after goalkeeper Frank Fielding was sent off, they held on for a comfortable victory.

"We were totally in command as soon as the first whistle went," said Garner.

"The first 20 minutes, we were absolutely superb, dominated the game and were in their half constantly.

"We didn't get the goal our play justified but we stuck at it and when it came, it was a brilliant goal, a training ground goal really.

"Great hold up play from Conor Sammon and a typical Craig Bryson run and a good finish."

Garner had no complaints with Fielding's red card and admitted the keeper was at fault.

"At the time I thought his starting position was too deep and I think he hesitated which was disappointing," he added.

"The last thing we wanted was a penalty and a sending off. It was a poor decision by Frank, not the referee, who got it spot on."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
