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.
