Congratulations To Peterborough On Promotion To Championship

Congratulations to Peterborough who overcame Huddersfield in a tense League One play-off final to gain promotion to the Championship.

Despite a three goal margin the final was not as clear cut as the score line suggests, for 78 minutes the game was goalless and looking like heading to extra time.

Then Peterborough stunned Old Trafford with three goals in seven minutes to seal victory with Tommy Rowe, Grant McCann and Craig Mackail Smith on the score sheet.

Commiserations to Huddersfield who will feel that on another day they could have been toasting promotion.

At Peterborough Darren Ferguson will now take Peterborough into the Championship for the second time in his management career and the Posh will be hoping that this time they can establish themselves in the division.

    Who’s Duncan Ferguson?

      Thank you for spotting the deliberate mistake, the Peterborough manager is of course Darren Ferguson son of Sir Alex and not the lumbering former Everton striker Duncan Ferguson.
