Bristol Rovers 0-0 Peterborough United

Christy Pym's brilliant stoppage-time save from Ollie Clarke earned a point for Peterborough following a goalless draw with managerless Bristol Rovers in League One.

The midfielder looked set to win the game when finding space inside the box to drill a low left-footed shot, but Pym spread himself to block the effort.

Rovers goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola also distinguished himself with a fine second-half save from Mo Eisa's goal-bound shot and a draw was a fair result to a game played in pouring rain as Peterborough moved into second place in the table.

A low-key first half saw Marcus Maddison shoot narrowly wide in a bright Peterborough start.

The visitors looked to have gone in front after 15 minutes when Jaakkola failed to hold a Joe Ward shot and Eisa netted the rebound, only to be flagged offside.

Liam Sercombe fired over with Rovers' only first-half effort and it took a saving tackle from Rollin Menayese to stop Ivan Toney opening the scoring for Posh after 38 minutes in a game of few clear-cut chances.
