Darren Ferguson: Felt Peterborough were unlucky to lose

George Boyd drove in through a crowded penalty area to set up a tense finish but earlier second-half goals from Ross Barkley and Miguel Llera ensured the Owls leapfrogged their opponents.

"I said at half-time that I think we got caught in a bit of a trap because of the way they played," Ferguson said.

"We were in control of the game I felt, they didn't cause us any problems really but I just think we seemed content to play at a tempo that suited them.

"I don't know if there was enough conviction about us in the first half which disappointed me more than anything really.

"We knew Barkley ran on from flick-ons and we didn't deal with it. Then we got control of the game again possession-wise and we've lost a poor second and I thought when Boyd scored we would get something out of it.

"I don't think it was a game we deserved to lose.

"But we've put ourselves in a position where virtually every game is a cup final because we've had such a poor start to the season."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
