Peterborough United manager Dave Robertson says he has total faith in goalkeeper Ben Alnwick despite his recent poor form.

The 28-year-old has been at fault as Posh conceded six goals in two games, but he will start against Gillingham.

"I have 100% faith and belief in Ben in everything he does, he's an excellent professional," Robertson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"He's aware that he made two errors and what he has done is bounce back."

Alnwick has let in a total of 12 goals in six matches so far this season.

"He wants to win football matches, he wants to do the right thing by the team and I have total faith in Ben at this moment in time," Robertson added.

Posh are 18th in the League One table with just one win in their first four league matches, but Robertson is confident will turn their form around.

"We've been clear about our actions and we feel like we've dealt with things decisively and you will see a reaction from the team this Saturday," he said.

"I won't be looking at the league table until we start to get to 10 games and at that stage it starts to settle down."
