Peterborough boss given the dreaded chairman's vote of confidence

Peterborough chairman Darren MacAnthony has given his full backing to under-fire manager Gary Johnson. Johnson has come under pressure in the wake of the 5-1 home defeat to Charlton, with Posh losing 3-0 to Brighton at London Road recently as well.

With the club having three different managers last season, many believed MacAnthony was set to wield the axe again.

But he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I don't need to give him a vote of confidence. I made a lot of mistakes last season and the last thing I'm going to do is start pressing the panic button.

"However, I feel we need to remain a little bit calm. I know people are getting a little bit antsy about what's going on, and after two defeats like that they've got every right to be antsy."
