Posh dominate the first half: Nicky Ajose and Lee Tomlin have early chances, then Stuart Nelson performs heroics to prevent a double effort from George Boyd. He can’t stop Grant McCann’s free kick from finding the top corner, however. Boyd then picks out Tommy Rowe, who easily places the ball over Nelson. Posh get their third before the break as Boyd curls home from the edge of the area. Half-time changes give the hosts a way back into the game, and they soon reduce the decifict: Paul Jones misjudges Julian Kelly’s cross, and Craig Westcarr converts at the back post. Craig Alcock comes close having controlled Ryan Bennett’s drilled pass, only to fire wide. Notts County grab their second when Hamza Bencherif powers past Jones. The equaliser nearly arrives moments later, only for Westcarr to hit the post. David Ball is given a decent opportunity following good work by Paul Taylor, but he miskicks the ball. Neal Bishop and Jeff Hughes have late chances, but Posh manage to hold on.
