Pre-season friendly
London Road
Kick-off: 7.45pm

90min - Upson does well again to get the ball away.

88min - It looks like being another good result for Curbishley's men. Parker and Noble have been particularly impressive.

87min - Sears goes close. The young striker always looks a threat.

86min - The match sponsors have just named Peterborough's George Boyd as their man of the match. The No10 did play well. Meanwhile, Anton Ferdinand is coming off for Jack Collison. The No5 has played well and claps the travelling fans.

84min - Smart stop by Stech at his near-post from Potter.

82min - Cole has been tireless and just goes close with a snap-shot. Off comes Kyel Reid for Junior Stanislas.

81min - Sears flashes one wide. The game has become a bit disjointed since all the changes.

 76min - 5,352 fans have witnessed what has been a competitive contest,

74min - Cole goes close with a shot on the turn before the 18-year-old Stech makes a smart stop at the other end.

70min - Green goes off to a good reception with Marek Stech entering in his place. Bellamy goes off with Freddie Sears arriving. Posh have taken off Morgan for Charnock and Boyd makes way for Alfie Potter.

69min - Peterborough have not given up this contest. The changes made by Darren Ferguson have energised the side. To sum that up, Boyd smashes a low drive against the post.

66min - Widdowson is on for Behrami. It has been a good first appearance for the Swiss international. Curbishley gives him a pat on the back. ANother change for Posh as Charlie Lee makes way for Micah Hyde. With Widdowson on, Neill has reverted to right-back.

64min - Outstanding tackle by Upson on Batt. Joe Widdowson is getting ready to come on.

63min - Good play by Boyd ends with a shot at goal that Upson clears. He worked his way well into the area on the left-hand side.

60min - Four changes for Peterborough. Chris Westwood, Paul Coutts, Scott Rendell and Shaun Batt are on for Shane Blackett, Aaron Mclean, Dean Keates and Chris Whelpdale.

60min - Upson then gets in the way of Reid's shot from the resulting corner. Nothing the England defender could do about it.

59min - Posh free-kick just outside the area comes to nothing. Parker sets Bellamy away on the counterattack and Bellamy tees up Reid, only for the left-winger to be denied by a last-ditch block.

58min - Bellamy nearly sets Cole on goal but the pass is just too strong and it runs through to Lewis.

56min - Noble lofts one just wide after being picked out by Parker. The two have combined well in midfield.

54min - Behrami flashes a shot wide of the post. It came at the end of a sweeping move.

53min - Dean Keates goes close with a half-volley after more good approach play. Green had it covered though.

51min - Noble shoots for goal but Lewis was never worried. Boyd breaks at the other end but Behrami and Ferdinand close well. Peterborough retain possession and Boyd should have scored with a free header from Martin's cross.

49min - Upson has looked comfortable on only his second game this summer. He played 75 minutes at Thurrock on Saturday.

47min - Neill nearly gets Cole away. He has looked comfortable at left-back, a position he knows well from his time at Blackburn Rovers.

46min - We are under way with no half-time changes.

Half-time - 0-2

45min - Cole turns well after receiving the ball with his back to goal. His shot just flashes wide.

44min - Neill is back defending now and does well to shepherd the ball back to Green. Bellamy now has four goals in his three games this pre-season.

42min - GOAL! - Another delightful goal by Bellamy. He got in behind and chipped the keeper superbly after a long pass forward from Neill.

40min - The refere is talking to Faubert and Williams. No cards are issued though.

38min - Behrami goes down in the box after neat build-up involving Bellamy and Parker. Only a corner is given though. From it, Reid flashes a shot that is not too far from Lewis's right-hand post.

34min - Behrami is penalised for a foul on George Boyd just outside the penalty area. Moments earlier, Boyd had forced another good save from Green. Russell Martin's free-kick is too long.

31min - Peterborough are not giving the visitors an inch. There is lots of pressure on the ball and Alan Curbishley's side are having to be on their toes. A good game.

29min - Behrami is enjoying this. He gets the better of two men before laying the ball off. When forced into a defensive clearance seconds later, he denies Mclean with a timely challenge.

28min - Bellamy's free-kick goes straight into the wall. After his follow-up is blocked, Peterborough break and Behrami is penalised for a foul.

27min - The temperature is rising. Cole back on does well after Faubert leaves two defenders in his wake. However, the West Ham United striker is fouled 25 yards from goal.

25min - Noble is penalised for a foul. Peterborough have the chance to cause trouble in the area but Neill clears and then Ferdinand puts pressure on the ball to deny a shot on goal.

23min - A lovely flick by Behrami nearly creates an opening in the penalty area. Bellamy is then flagged for offside.

21min - Green tips over from Peterborough captain Craig Morgan's header.

19min - Cole is off the field getting treatment after appearing to be winded by the ball. Faubert meanwhile crosses again but the danger is cleared.

18min - A fantastic one-handed save by Robert Green denies Aaron McLean after the Peterborough No9 was able to acrobatically connect with a cross into the box,

15min - Good tracking by Cole to deny Tom Williams. Alan Curbishley will be pleased with the efforts this evening.

12min - Kyel Reid does well to find space on the left before fizzing a cross into the area. It just eludes the away attackers though.

10min - Faubert wins a corner and takes it himself from the right. Cole flicks on but no one is able to meet it.

9min - West Ham United are dominating the play with Carlton Cole and Bellamy seeing lots of the ball and Noble and Parker lively behind.

7min - Lucas Neill lofts a pass forward for Noble but Lewis is just able to claim.

5min - Faubert strides clear through the middle. He gets 30 yards from goal and then tries his luck from range. The play is quickly switched and a good sliding tackle by Parker clears the danger.

5min - Valon Behrami plays a neat pass inside to Parker. The play is switched to the left flank but Peterborough gain possession.

3min - GOAL! 0-1 Craig Bellamy races away from the defence after Scott Parker's pass and slots the ball in after roundig Joe Lewis.

1min - Peterborough get us under way. However, the ball is won quickly by the visitors and Julien Faubert races away on the right before a strong tackle.

Kick-off delayed until 7.55pm

Welcome to the London Road home of Peterborough United for the club's fourth pre-season friendly. Valon Behrami will make his debut for the club at right-back with Lucas Neill at left-back. Craig Bellamy, who missed out against the MLS All-Stars, and Mark Noble are both back. Bellamy will be partnered by Carlton Cole with Dean Ashton, who has been feeling unwell this week, sitting out following his good form on the club's tour to North America. It is hoped he will return to feature at Southampton.
