Ferguson wants Posh side to focus

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson has urged his men to remain focused following their comprehensive 2-0 League Cup win over Newcastle. Posh dominated at London Road against a much-changed Newcastle side. Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I'm not going to get carried away with two wins, just as I wasn't getting carried away with not winning. "I don't get emotional about results, and I won't be allowing the players to get carried away." Posh cruised into the fourth round with goals from Craig Mackail-Smith and Tommy Williams crowning a dominant performance as they pummelled a youthful Newcastle side from start to finish. Ferguson opted to start with the 4-3-3 formation which proved so successful in the second half of Saturday's win over Reading. "It was important to carry momentum from the second half of the Reading game," he said. "We've not played 4-3-3 a lot, we've changed to it during games, but we obviously started with it tonight." The London Road side's start to new season could turn right around with three points against Blackpool on Saturday. Ferguson says he will be happy as long as his players continue to match their current levels of effort and commitment. "We're now six unbeaten, and whilst I know we should have had more points, I was never overly concerned," he said. "Even though we weren't getting results, I've always been proud of my players and I'm sure the supporters have been as well."
