On the back of victory over Oldham at the weekend, manager Lee Johnson has talked of his frustration following the three two loss to Peterborough last night.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game the main frustration for the gaffer was that he felt it was a really good performance overall from the side.

‘I thought we were brilliant. I can`t fault the players. The fans were brilliant too. I give my thanks to them from the players and myself. Even with 10 men we had chances. We went two at the back, four in midfield, three upfront just to go for it. The offside goal wasn`t off, what more can we do?’

The positives are the turning fortunes of our performances for him though as he knows we are back on the right track, but now it’s about cutting out the mistakes and poor goals that are costing us, and making sure we give ourselves the advantage in games.

‘The performances are picking up. If we cut out the mistakes and poor goals, people are playing well. People are working hard and getting chances. Over the last four games we must have had 60 shots, we just need to convert them.’

It was a case of mixed fortunes for on loan Burnley defender Kevin Long as after scoring the winner at the weekend, he got himself a red card last night.

On the sending off, Johnson added.

‘I`ll have to look at it again, I`ve been there as a player and you`re stretching and committed showing the world you want to win. I don`t know if he left the ground, I`ll have to have a look. Aidy White wanted to play, he was desperate. FA rules said he couldn`t as he was concussed. Ryan Williams is ┬žback now as well. Injuries and suspensions aside we`re getting stronger. We always said we`d become stronger when the lads were back. I think the boys have got to use all this and go into a great game with that performance. Even though we`ve lost tonight the crowd were behind us, go home tell your mates we were good and come out Saturday and support the boys against Sheffield United.’
