Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson admitted "a bit of magic" from Tyrone Barnett had given his side a 1-0 win against Port Vale.

Darren Ferguson: Happy with Barnett magic

A very tight contest looked set to end in stalemate when the big striker struck five minutes from time to keep Ferguson's men hot on the heels of leaders Leyton Orient.

Substitute Danny Kearns played the vital pass and Barnett found a yard of space to crack an unstoppable 10-yard shot inside Vale goalkeeper Chris Neal's right-hand post.

Ferguson said: "It was a bit of magic from the big man. It took a moment of individual brilliance to win what was a really tough match.

"Tyrone has been on fire this season and it was a great goal. It was probably the one piece of true quality in the game.

"If I'm honest we never really got going. We haven't played well, but good teams can win games without being at their best.

"I felt we played into Vale's hands. We didn't move the ball quickly enough, particularly in the first-half.

"We upped it a bit in the second-half, but I would imagine Port Vale would feel they were unfortunate to lose the game because they put a lot into it.

"Of course results are the most important thing, but performances come very close behind as far as I'm concerned and we can play better than that."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
