Posh and Barnsley Put City Back In Bottom Place

Posh and Barnsley Put City Back In Bottom Place

Both Barnsley and Peterborough picked up points in the Championship last night meaning City once again occupy bottom place in the table.

Barnsley were at home and they managed a 2-1 win over Brighton who are themselves beginning to slip a bit near the top of the table.

There was late drama at Oakwell with Brighton being awarded an 83rd minute penalty with the score at 2-1, but Luke Steele managed to save Leonardo Ulloa's spot kick.

Peterborough looked to have a tough task on their hands when they travelled to Elland Road to take on Leeds United.

Dwight Gayle gave the Posh a 15th minute lead against the play-off hopefuls and the score stayed that way until just before the hour mark when teenager Sam Byram rescued a point for the home side.

Peterborough, Wolves and City now occupy the bottom three places all on 39 points. The Robins take on Wolves at Molineux on Saturday in a crunch game.

Peterborough are away at Blackpool while Barnsley are at home to third place Watford.

Ipswich Town, who are in 20th place are at home to Bolton, Sheffield Wednesday who like Ipswich have 42 points, are at home to Cardiff.

Saturday at Wolves is going to be a massive game, its 'must win' a draw is absolutely no good.

I expected barnsley to win, surprised about posh though. All is not lost yet, if we can manage a win at wolves the others have got pretty tough games

Sadly I think that its all over and its down to the fact that we did not get rid of mcInnes soon enough.

Everyone except wolves will fancy their chances of going out of the relegation places. We must not lose on Saturday..... Think we will though
