Ferguson: I'm going nowhere

19 September 2012

Posh boss Darren Ferguson insisted he is going nowhere despite his team slumping to a sixth successive league defeat.

Million pound hitman Sam Baldock struck twice in the space of six second-half minutes - Britsol City's first goals on the road this season - to crank up the despair for pointless Posh in a 2-1 defeat.

Baldock made no mistake when being handed two simple chances to settle the contest before Lee Tomlin earned and converted a stoppage-time penalty for the rock-bottom hosts.

Ferguson's first spell as manager at London Road ended with the club bottom of the Championship in November 2009, but he is adamant that will not happen again.

He said: "There is no getting away from the fact we have suffered a shocking season. The commitment is certainly there but I'm not seeing that real conviction to go and win a game.

"One or two players need taking out of the firing line as they look short on confidence. I've got a tough job to pick the players up but we will always keep believing in what we are trying to achieve.

"We are only six points from safety and we have 40 games in which to make those up. There will be no repeat of what happened last time we were in this situation.

"Myself and the chairman have a great respect for each other. No-one is going anywhere."

Bristol City boss Derek McInnes' joy at a first away win of the season was tempered by a double injury shocker as midfielder Cole Skuse and defender Greg Cunningham were stretchered off in leg braces.

McInnes said: "I'm just pleased with the result. We produced a really professional performance and saw two clinical finishes from Sam."
