Posh start their pre-season badly: within 30 seconds former loanee Izale McLeod converts Mark Marshall’s cross from the left. Gabriel Zakuani quickly comes close to equalising, but then is responsible for the second, slipping and allowing former Posh target Ricky Holmes to race clear and finish past Paul Jones. The visitors are reduced to trying long-range efforts, until back-in-favour Lee Frecklington latches on to Grant Basey’s cross and plays the ball through Stuart Searle’s legs. McLeod and the impressive Paul Taylor both miss chances before the break. In the second half it doesn’t take Posh long to equalise: George Boyd picks out David Ball, who unselfishly squares the ball to Lee Tomlin in front of an empty net. Marshall twice fails to restore the home side’s lead, and Ryan Watts sends his effort over the bar. Ball comes close to stealing a late winner, but he can’t connect with Boyd’s cross.
