Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson says Gethin Jones’ red card was the right call after a “dangerous” tackle.

Jones was given his marching orders by referee Ross Joyce on the stroke of half time after catching Ricky Jade-Jones late and the Whites were forced to play the second half with 10 men.

The visitors had earlier gone in front through Jonson Clarke-Harris’ header but Wanderers hit back immediately through Victor Adeboyejo.

When asked about the sending off, Ferguson said: “A terrible tackle, really dangerous. I don’t know why because Ricky really wasn’t going anywhere.

“He’s fine. He is lucky, he finds these sort of tackles against him a lot. One day, it is going to prove to be a bad injury - when you lift your feet off the ground and come at that angle.

“But we didn’t find a way of breaking them down and were a bit unlucky with that.”

Ronnie Edwards struck the post twice in the second half, while the woodwork also saved Jack Iredale from diverting into his own net.

“I don’t actually know if it was a good thing that they got a man sent off because it gave them an easy decision to make, and they just sat in,” Ferguson continued.

“We had to work the ball outside them. We were finding space and looked dangerous in the first half, I thought we played very well.

“Unfortunately, we maybe didn’t get the rub of the green in the second half. If one of those goes in, you could ned up winning the game comfortably because they have to chase it and the game opens up.

“Saying that, I have been involved in games like that where we could have lost it because they have got the two big strikers on.

“They were putting it forward and were a threat. They kept them in the game by keeping the ball in our half.

“I was pleased with the performance but not the result. I thought first half, we went toe-to-toe with them and I saw maturity from my team.”
