Posh win for the first time at the City Ground, twice coming from behind to beat League One favourites Nottingham Forest 3-2. George Boyd and Aaron Mclean have early chances, but Luke Chambers gives the home side the lead following some sustained pressure. Straight after the break Charlie Lee equalises with a stunning 25-yard drive, but Chambers is gifted his second a minute later. Not long passes before he grabs his third, albeit in his own net, with his attempted tackle sending the ball past Paul Smith. Both sides have further chances, but only Boyd can find the back of the net. Posh remain in control for the rest of the game, despite the introduction of Neil Lennon for the home side.
