Wrexham boss Brian Little defended his players after a mass brawl marred their 0-0 draw at high-flying Peterborough United. Posh manager Darren Ferguson was fuming after seeing his goalkeeper Joe Lewis stretchered off following a clash with Dragons defender Steve Evans, but Little played down any intent in the incident. He told BBC Sport Wales: "Steve was a little bit late with challenge, but I thought that he genuinely went for the ball. "He scored a header from an identical situation last week. I'm 100 per cent sure that it was an accident, Steve's eyes didn't leave the ball. "We are fighting like crazy to stay up. The gameplan is about pressure, but the last thing in the world we are is over-physical. "However, the brawl shouldn't have happened, we need to be better behaved than that."
