Darren Ferguson has expressed delight at watching Peterborough defeat Ipswich 7-1 on Saturday, and the manager believes the fans will remember the game for many years to come.

A hat-trick from Lee Tomlin, including a last minute goal, along with double strikes from Paul Taylor and Grant McCann, sealed the win for the newly-promoted side, with Ipswich seeing two men sent off during the match.

And Ferguson couldn’t be happier with his side’s performance, telling reporters that the game was nothing short of magnificent.

"I couldn't be more delighted with my players," he said. "To win a game of football 7-1 at any level is a terrific achievement, but to do it in the Championship against a team of Ipswich's standing is nothing short of magnificent.

“I'm sure this will be a day that everyone will remember for a long time and it is not just the final result that pleases me."


 

Despite Ipswich having players sent off, Ferguson said that the way that Peterborough performed against 11 men was just as promising, and a good show of what the side can do in the second tier this season.

He added: "I thought we were excellent when we carved Ipswich open time and again to get 4-1 one up before they had players sent off."

Peterborough have lost only one of their last four matches since the season began, and are currently sitting at a healthy sixth position on the npower Championship table.

Posh take on Middlesbrough at home this Wednesday in a Carling Cup round two clash, and will then travel to Brighton to play the fellow newly-promoted Albion.
