Darren Ferguson: Posh deserved to win

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett let rip at referee Bobby Madley after his side had a strong spot-kick appeal dismissed in the early stages of their first away defeat of the campaign.

Madley, taking charge of his first match since awarding Stoke a controversial late penalty in a recent Premier League match at Swansea, refused to point to the spot despite Posh defender Mark Little appearing to handle Bakary Sako's cross.

It proved to be a pivotal moment in a match settled by a single goal - a free-kick from Posh skipper Michael Bostwick with 11 minutes remaining.

Ferguson said: "The game was never going to be a classic and it was all about getting three points.

"We produced a brave performance and hopefully the result can bring the belief and confidence flooding back.

"We don't get enough joy with our free-kicks and Michael should take more of them.

"We know what he is capable of doing in those situations and it was a goal worthy of winning any game."

Bostwick lashed a 25-yard strike past Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme as out-of-form Posh snapped a five-match losing streak in League One in style.

That was the hosts' only on-target effort of the afternoon, but Wolves had also created little in front of goal.

Wide man Sako fired one decent opportunity into the side-netting before testing Posh keeper Bobby Olejnik with a smart volley in the second period.

Leigh Griffiths and Danny Batth also squandered good headed opportunities as Jackett's men failed to find a breakthrough.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
