Ferguson frustrated with Posh
Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson was disappointed to see his side capitulate after Leeds came from behind to claim a 4-1 win at Elland Road.
Leeds had fallen behind to Joe Newell's opener, before Billy Paynter and Ross McCormack (two) turned things around in a 180-second spell either side of the break before Paynter then wrapped things up.
Posh are eight points clear of third-bottom Coventry in the npower Championship with three games remaining, and although it would take a freakish set of results to see them make an immediate return to League One, Ferguson wants to finish the season with a flourish.
"The first goal for Leeds changed the game," said Ferguson, who confirmed that defender Gabriel Zakuani will not play again this season owing to a dislocated shoulder.
"We could have been more than 1-0 up and were causing them all sorts of problems. But a crazy five minutes killed us. Some of our defending was comical.
"We're making it hard for ourselves, we're faltering at the death. We wanted to end with momentum, which might not seem important at the moment but it will next season."
