    • 54' Posh are looking a bit shellshocked right now.

    • 48' Straight away Boyd gets in space at the other end but slices his left-footed effort wide.

    • 46' Paul Jones, on loan from Exeter, replaces Joe Lewis for Posh at half-time.

    • 33' The free-kick is far too deep and comes to nothing.
    • 33' Chadwick wins a free-kick on the right after a poor tackle by Lee. He's lectured by the referee.
    • 32' Langmead replaces the injured Zakuani.
    • 31' Gleeson shoots well wide from just outside the box after being fed by Lewington.
    • 29' Zakuani is the latest player struggling with injury. He's gone down holding his shoulder.
    • 27' Mackail-Smith is caught just offside. Close call.
    • 25' Doumbe does brilliantly down the right to skip past Lee. He fires in a cross but nobody can get a vital touch on it and it fizzes wide.

    • 19' Lewis is going to soldier on.
    • 18' Lewis has gone down again following that earlier collision with Lee. It looks like his game could be over.
    • 17' Crunching tackle by Doumbe on Mendez-Laing. Bit of a two-footed lunge there. He gets away with it, however.
    • 15' Mendez-Laing finds Mackail-Smith in space on the left but he blazes over. Good movement again, though.
    • 13' Boyd shoots from distance but it's comfortable for Martin.
    • 10' How will the Dons respond?
    • 8' Claims of offside by Dons, but Lewington had played Mackail-Smith on. That's his 33rd goal of the season in all competitions. Some record.
    • 8' A good move by Posh sees the ball worked to Mendez-Laing. His first-time shot from just inside the area is palmed out by Martin but straight into the path of Mackail-Smith, who can't miss from three yards.
    • 8' GOAL - Peterborough!
    • 6' He's back on - but moving pretty gingerly.
    • 5' Lewis seems to be ok, but Lee is struggling. Concern for Posh.

    • 3' Chadwick shapes to shoot but McCann nips in to win the ball.
    • 1' MK Dons get proceedings under way. TV cameras just showed Sir Alex Ferguson in crowd.
    • 12:14 The two teams walk out of the tunnel - kick-off is just minutes away.
    • 12:02 Posh scored 106 League One goals this season. It’s form that should have the Dons defence trembling as the clubs duel for the right to have a season finale at Old Trafford.
    • 12:02 Fry said: "If we go up we start with an extra £3.5m, maybe even £4m just from the Football League award money.”
