Peterborough United goalkeeper Joe Lewis says it is a big relief to have moved off the bottom of the Championship table for Christmas.Saturday's win against Watford moved Peterborough up to 23rd.

Lewis told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Psychologically it's massive because to be bottom at Christmas is an omen for a lot of teams.

"To be off the bottom is great and hopefully that will kick-start our season now."

Posh are now just four points adrift of safety but face promotion-chasing West Brom and Cardiff over the Christmas period.

Lewis said it was important they turned the Watford victory into the start of a winning run.

"The lads haven't been disheartened as we've been playing well, but the results weren't coming," he said.

"It's our first win under the new manager and a massive boost for the club."
