Posh give an encouraging display at London Road, despite being unable to score. Tyrone Barnett has the first opportunity, but is only able to head George Boyd's cross over the bar. Robert Olejnik keeps out Steve Morrison's header, then Simeon Jackson fires wide. Having missed a further chance, Morrison opens the scoring from close range. In the second half Jackson and Wes Hoolahan go close, then Declan Rudd denies Barnett and Paul Taylor. Nicky Ajose comes off the bench and is sent clean through by Lee Tomlin, only for a last ditch tackle by Elliott Ward to deny him the equaliser. The visitors double their lead with 5 minutes to go, as Grant Holt picks out James Vaughan, who powers the ball past Olejnik. Darren Ferguson says the he is pleased with the display: "Aside with one or two moments, I thought we looked very solid. We created chances and put into practice work we have done on formations."
