Peterborough United striker Kyle Vassell has joined League Two strugglers Dagenham and Redbridge on loan until January 2.

The 23-year-old has recently returned from injury and manager Graham Westley is keen for him to get some first team minutes under his belt.

"It is difficult to get your match sharpness when you are coming off the bench for a few minutes here and there so this is a move that is good for all parties.

He can go to Dagenham and play some football and I will be keeping a close eye on their progress with him involved."

Peterborough United have been dealt a blow with the news that their striker Joe Gormley could face up to a year on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury.

The 24-year-old partially tore his anterior cruciate ligament and completely tore his lateral collateral ligament during a development fixture at Norwich City last week.

The former Cliftonville forward will now undergo an operation in the coming days and is expected to be out for nine to twelve months.

"It is obviously awful news. I think he knew instantaneously that it was a difficult situation he was in, but he has been very positive.

He is a professional, he has got good people around him and he has got good medical people around him.

It is disappointing for him, but he has to make sure he come back stronger and I am sure he will.

While he is out, he has plenty of time to improve tactically because you watch a lot of football when you are injured and you can take on board a lot of lessons about how to play the game and come back a better player."

Former Peterborough United manager Dave Robertson is back in work - just a few weeks after he was sacked as Posh boss.

The 41-year-old has been appointed as the new under 21s manager at fellow League One club Southend United.

Robertson was dismissed from his role at the ABAX Stadium after Posh made a poor start to the season, with ex Stevenage manager Graham Westley replacing him.

Robertson takes over from Dale Brooks at Roots Hall.


Westley urges Posh fans to judge him on performance

Peterborough's new manager Graham Westley has told the club's fans to judge him on how his team plays following some negative reaction to his appointment.

The 47-year-old's spell at Preston was overshadowed by reports of player unrest and criticism of both his management and playing style before he was sacked just over a year in charge and Posh fans have raised concerns on social media.

"Your actions are always the most important thing in football. It doesn't matter what you say, what matters is what you do," Westley said when unveiled by the club at a press conference.

Westley, who guided Stevenage to the Football League for the first time in their history in 2010 and secured back-to-back promotions for the club the following season, will take charge of his first game for Posh at Bradford on Saturday.

The former Stevenage manager has been confirmed as the new boss at League One club Peterborough United.

Peterborough have been without a manager since Dave Robertson left the club in September.

Westley left Stevenage in May after the club lost in the League Tow play-off semi-final.

Peterborough are currently 18th in the league after drawing 1-1 at Walsall on Saturday.

"Today we welcome Graham Westley as the new manager of Peterborough United Football Club after what has been an extensive interview process with some excellent candidates.

"Graham has a burning desire to win, succeed and add to his previous success which includes multiple promotions, league titles and multiple cup wins at Wembley not to mention a near 50% win record."
