Johnson Clarke-Harris came off the bench to help Peterborough to produce one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Championship. The visitors had the better of the first half and were rewarded when Tom Bradshaw put them ahead after 16 minutes. The home side came out stronger after the break with Clarke-Harris forcing defender Danny McNamara to put through his own net before scoring the winner four minutes later. The goals were the first for Posh in their last six matches. It was a disappointing result for the away side as they missed the chance to keep the pressure on the playoff places.
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “It’s the third time this season (we’ve come from behind to win) and it was thoroughly deserved. We had the belief to keep playing and we got the break. At half-time, I said to the boys if we get one we’ll win it. Johnson has come on and made a difference. There’s always pressure when you’re not winning games and my job is to give belief to the players and you could see that. We need to kick on. Today has brought some confidence into the team and some belief.”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “It was another hugely disappointing afternoon. We conceded two goals from absolutely basic errors and you’re not going to win games when that happens. I’m disappointed overall with the performance and particularly our inconsistency which is a big part of our challenge at the moment.”
