Peterborough and Barnsley were unable to break the deadlock as they produced one of the goalless football results of the weekend in the Championship. Both teams lost more ground in their fight to avoid relegation despite Poya Asbaghi picking up his first points as manager. Joel Randall missed the best chance of the game for the home side as he blazed over the bar from close range.
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “It was a game lacking in quality, which was probably understandable to a degree with two nervous teams who are not getting good results at the moment. The floodlights going out probably did us a favor in all honesty. We were able to get a breather into some tired legs and I thought we finished strongly when we came back on, but unfortunately, we couldn’t take the big chance. We should have gone away thinking ‘it wasn’t a great game but at least we picked up the three points, so that was the big moment.”
Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We had the ambition to win the game, so of course there is a disappointment we didn’t come away with all three points. But we don’t know how important this point will be until the end of the season. Maybe then it will be worth something for us. A clean sheet is very pleasing and shows we are building something, but it is clear we need to link up better with each other than we did in this game and understand better how to use the spaces on the pitch.”
