Johnson defends Lewis over errors

Peterborough boss Gary Johnson gave his backing to goalkeeper Joe Lewis despite two mistakes costing his side defeat in a 3-2 loss at Huddersfield. Posh found themselves three goals behind at the break, with Graham Carey and Anthony Pilkington - twice - putting the Terriers in control. Aaron Mclean's eighth goal of the season offered hope but Mark Little's second came too late. Johnson said: "Joe is going to be a top keeper but in this game he was unfortunate that two went in. There have been other games where he has kept us in it." Johnson acknowledged two "poor mistakes" but added: "We don't have a blame culture at this club but we tell the truth. "I thought a couple of lads were short on the day and at half-time we changed it with three subs. "In the second half we had enough, not just to get back into the game, but to win it. But we probably didn`t deserve to win on the first half performance."
