    Time:90'
    • Peterborough United
    • Leeds United
    • 90+5' FULL TIME: Peterborough 2 Leeds 3. Breathless stuff and an incredible finale - a great advertisement for Championship football. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+5' GOAL! Dramatic stuff as Leeds have snatched it at the death. The ball comes back off the bar and Becchio sinks the rebound for 2-3. Cruel on the home side.
    • 90+4' McCann's free-kick is fisted over his own bar by Rachubka for a corner, which is cleared.
    • 90+3' Ball looks to go through on goal and is brought down by a crude tackle by Darren O'Dea which has the referee reaching for his pocket again.
    • 90+2' Rachubka and Jones have both had the ball as injury time has seen little incident yet.
    • 90' Four minutes of injury time are going to be played after Becchio came on for Keogh.
    • 88' It was very scrappy but they all count and Leeds respond with Jones called into action following a shot by Nunez.
    • 87' GOAL! The 10 men have levelled matters - Mark Little will claim it after a long ball by Jones wasn't cleared inside the box. Ball and Taylor tried to profit but Little possibly got the last touch. 2-2.
    • 85' Clayton has received some treatment which helps eat down the clock.
    • 83' Tunnicliffe fells White to concede a foul after Nunez got his first touch.
    • 82' Ramon Nunez is on for McCormack for the final stages.
    • 82' Peterborough win a corner from a McCann free-kick. The skipper also takes the flag-kick which leads to an infringement inside the area and Leeds relieve the pressure.
    • 80' Zakuani defends well with a header - Posh have run themselves into the ground.
    • 79' Ball is going up front with Taylor as Ferguson takes a gamble in the closing stages.
    • 78' David Ball comes on for Frecklington - the final change for Peterborough.
    • 76' Frecklington can't find Boyd inside the box but McCann wins the ball back. Leeds easily smother the attack and break themselves.
    • 75' Quarter of an hour to go as Rachubka has the ball in his possession.
    • 73' A good run by Tunnicliffe sparks Posh into life again but the move eventually fizzles out. He should have the legs after only coming on at the break.
    • 71' Zakuani has to clear a dangerous cross from Connolly that was headed goalwards by McCormack.
    • 71' Sam goes in with a sliding challenge - he's on a yellow but there was no question of any wrongdoing from the former Charlton man despite the claims of the home crowd.
    • 69' Peterborough are having to defend but they were bound to need a breather. Perhaps the home side will be able to come again late in the match.
    • 67' Clayton screws a shot well wide for Leeds as the Yorkshiremen have a spell of pressure.
    • 67' Keogh can't reach a long ball forward - he was the man who got the ball rolling early on with that fine opener.
    • 65' Posh have done well in the second half since going behind again. This game's not won for Leeds yet.
    • 64' Rowe is fouled by Sam, who picks up a yellow card for the challenge.
    • 62' Howson gets the better of Tunnicliffe to spark another move involving Aidy White but the visitors settle for keeping the ball rather than providing any sting at the end of it.
    • 60' McCann is booked for handling the ball as he concedes another free-kick by slipping and panicking.
    • 58' Sub Taylor is making a real impact - he forces a fingertip save out of Rachubka from a difficult angle. Fine effort.
    • 57' McCann's free-kick is too high as it goes over the bar for the 10 men.
    • 56' Tunnicliffe does well to pick out Taylor, who wins a free-kick inside the D just outside the area. A promising position and McCann is favourite to take it.
    • 55' Paul Taylor comes on for Sinclair as Ferguson reacts to losing another goal.
    • 54' GOAL! Leeds regain the lead as Jones is beaten by Clayton who fires home a firm finish following a spell of possession. The neat move ends with Clayton's classic shot from the edge of the box. 1-2.
    • 53' Sam gets his first touch and manages to win a throw-in. Jonny Howson is getting more involved this half.
    • 52' Boyd brings down Adam Clayton to concede a free-kick. You'd expect Leeds to have the greater energy against the 10 men as the half wears on.
    • 50' It's still a fine atmosphere for a morning kick-off and all to play for.
    • 48' An early substitution this half as Lloyd Sam comes on for Varynen.
    • 47' McCormack fizzes a shot over the bar - the first attempt of the second half and it wasn't a bad one. 12,880 is the crowd just announced.
    • 46' Ryan Tunnicliffe, who is on loan from Manchester United, replaces Alcock at the break. Tommy Rowe drops back to left-back to accommodate the youngster.
    • 46' The second half is underway - all square and all to play for at London Road.
    • 45+4' HALF TIME: Peterborough 1 Leeds 1. It's been action-packed and Posh are down to 10 men. Join us for the second half.
    • 45+2' Varynen sparks a break when McCann loses the ball and Jones has to make a fine save to keep out McCormack. The in-form striker looked a good bet to score but the keeper earned his corn there.
    • 45+1' Into stoppage time in the first half and Jones has the ball again.
    • 44' Jones takes the pressure off by safely clutching the corner and it looks as though we're be heading into the break on level terms.
    • 43' Leeds have the ball and try and mount another attack with McCormack feeding Connolly and a cross is unconvincingly cleared by McCann before a corner is awarded to the visitors.
    • 42' Keogh and McCann lose possession in quick succession as the first half is coming to a scrappy end, even if it's certainly not been dull.
    • 40' Zakuani has been carrying a knock but seems to be okay - it's become a bit of a battle.
    • 39' Keogh has been receiving treatment following the tackle. The home fans aren't happy and it could be a struggle from here for Posh.
    • 37' Drama as Tomlin goes in with a rash challenge on Keogh and is shown a straight red card. It was a reckless one but it seems harsh from referee Stroud.
    • 37' Boyd's waiting to get back on and the home crowd aren't too happy.
    • 35' Boyd is still not fully operational as he's got some blood coming from his foot. He'll just need a little bit more treatment, as could Tomlin who also has a problem.
    • 33' Connolly's cross fails to pick out Mika Varynen in the middle as Leeds aim to regain the lead.
    • 31' Lee Frecklington picks up a yellow card for a cynical tackle. The referee had no option really.
    • 31' Tommy Rowe makes a run that comes to an end when he's blocked before managing to get in a shot.
    • 29' Nip and tuck now as the half-hour mark approaches. It's been exciting stuff and we knew it promised goals.
    • 27' Danny Pugh's cross is nodded away by goalscorer Zakuani - Leeds have stepped things up since being pegged back.
    • 25' Jones makes a top save - palming away Keogh's effort as the striker looks for his second of the game following a fine run.
    • 24' It was a well-placed corner by McCann and the header got a slight deflection but it's definitely Zakuani's goal. Probably no more than Ferguson's team deserve.
    • 23' GOAL! The scores are level as McCann's corner is headed home by Gabriel Zakuani, it's no real surprise. 1-1.
    • 21' Boyd fires over the bar following a neat move involving Craig Alcock, who got the pass to him.
    • 19' Leeds' top scorer Ross McCormack whistles a shot wide that is watched all the way by Jones.
    • 18' Boyd is back on and Posh return to 11 men. Sinclair's looking lively in attack.
    • 17' Rachubka is out to claim the ball - this definitely has the feel that there will be more goals.
    • 16' George Boyd requires some treatment from the physio so there's a delay in play.
    • 15' Quarter of an hour gone and the hosts have overcome a sticky start and are pushing for an equaliser.
    • 14' Sinclair capitalises on a mistake by Connolly but again Tomlin cannot pick up the intended pass. Much better from Peterborough.
    • 13' Mark Little's persistance leads to a dangerous cross that evades Lee Tomlin at the near post but it raises the noise levels.
    • 12' Paul Connolly can only find the stands with a clearance, still a little scruffy at times here.
    • 10' The ball is worked back to keeper Jones rather than looking for some penetration - the heat is being taken out of the occasion which is probably a good thing.
    • 9' A couple of corners have come to nothing for Peterborough but the match is finally starting to settle into something resembling a pattern in the sunshine.
    • 7' The home side manage to get some possession with captain Grant McCann trying to calm things down.
    • 5' Posh are rocked by that goal but they're trying to muster a response immediately. Keogh does attempt another break but Ryan Bennett makes a telling tackle.
    • 4' GOAL! Andy Keogh half-volleys past Paul Jones from just inside the box - out of nothing Leeds take an early lead with a sweet finish. 0-1.
    • 3' Emile Sinclair is unable to get hold of a long through ball by Frecklington which runs through to Rachubka, who gets an early touch.
    • 2' Something of a scrappy opening and we've not settled down yet.
    • 1' We're underway in the early kick-off at London Road as Stroud blows his whistle.
    • 11:58 Posh are unchanged after their thrilling 4-3 win against Cardiff in midweek. The stage is set for a great occasion.
    • 11:56 The atmosphere is great and Peterborough have totally sold out of their home tickets. The hosts won't be short of vocal backing and Leeds' following is already in good voice as well.
    • 11:52 Paul Rachubka continues in goal for Leeds with Andy Lonergan out injured. The bad news for the former Manchester United keeper is this fixture should pretty much guarantee goals.
    • 11:45 Posh can go up to second in the table with three points, which would be quite some feat for Darren Ferguson's team. Leeds have their own agenda and can rise to a play-off spot with three points themselves. It promises to be a fine game.
    • 11:38 Keith Stroud from Hampshire is today's referee at London Road.
