Darren Ferguson: Pleased with come-from-behind win

Ronan Murray was sent off after 15 minutes of a seven-goal thriller at London Road on Tuesday night for throwing a punch at Danny Swanson.

By then Enoch Showunmi, with a rasping fourth-minute finish from an Alan Sheehan delivery, and Murray, who swept in a Kieran Freeman cross in the seventh minute, had fired the in-form visitors into a two-goal lead.

But their hopes of a fourth successive win were eventually dashed as Posh - spearheaded by the first hat-trick of back-in-favour frontman Nicky Ajose's career - made the most of their man advantage.

Ferguson said: "We won the game and that's all that matters at the moment.

"The confidence and belief is coming back after a couple of victories.

"The players showed tremendous character to come back from being behind. In fact it was like the good old days of seeing us turn a game around shooting towards the home end.

"I'm really pleased for Nicky because he has been very unlucky during his time here.

"I made my mind up to give him a run of games when I brought him back in from his loan spell at Swindon and he is getting the goals."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
