The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

IT’S ONLY Septem­ber, but Peter­bor­ough may have just got a taste of things to come after be­ing frus­trated by Notts County.

A young side who have surged to the top of the league found it hard to break down the vis­i­tors, who stayed com­pact and ought to have taken the lead when Jake Cas­sidy stabbed wide from mid­dle of the penalty area.

With no space in the mid­dle, Posh’s threat came down the flanks and in par­tic­u­lar from Mar­cus Mad­di­son, who had the fi­nal ball to un­lock the de­fence.

Un­for­tu­nately for the home fans, Luke James fired over their best chance.

County’s cen­tral mid­field­ers Alan Smith and Gary Jones had 30 years on their op­po­site num­bers and they used that ex­pe­ri­ence well, es­pe­cially Smith.

But other than Cas­sidy’s chance they of­fered lit­tle else go­ing for­ward and never tested Ben Al­nwick in the Peter­bor­ough goal.

Over­all it was a good point for County who will be pleased.
