Darren Ferguson believes his Peterborough United side deserved to beat Crystal Palace

Darren Ferguson believes that his Peterborough United side deserved their victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Posh came from a goal down, scored by Sean Scannell, to win the encounter 2-1 with goals from Grant McCann and David Ball.

"Result-wise it was the perfect start," the 39-year-old boss told the club's official website.

"It was a good performance when we increased the tempo, which we needed to do in the second half.

"I have to say I thought [the win] was thoroughly deserved."

Ferguson's men will travel to Stevenage Borough tomorrow (August 9) for a League Cup tie.
