Darren Ferguson: Worried about Peterborough's late blunders

Goals from Lee Tomlin, Dwight Gayle, George Thorne, Mark Little and Gabriel Zakuani gave the Posh a commanding 5-2 lead with five minutes left, but two late goals from Bolton made the hosts sweat.

Ferguson said: "It was a bit like the old days. We were outstanding for the vast majority of the match, but bang-average in the last few minutes.

"The game should really have been over at 5-2 and we can't afford the make the sort of lapses in concentration that we did late on.

"We are in a battle to stay up and goal difference could be a factor so we cannot afford to give soft goals away, but I don't want to be too critical of my players after producing such a good performance against a team that were in the Premier League this time last year.

"We've worked very hard lately and put everything into the last two games, so I'll give the players Christmas Day off.

"This is the third time we've managed back-to-back wins and now need to kick on and get a third in a massive game at Wolves on Boxing Day."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
