Super-sub silences the moaners
Gwion Edwards was one of the Posh arrivals that hastened the departure of popular winger Jon Taylor.
Pleasing then that he di- luted the moaningofTaylor’s fanclubbyscoringalast-gasp winnerontheopeningdayof the season.
Edwards was ‘Johnnyon-the-spot’ to head home a Paul Taylor cross that wasinexplicably dropped by home ‘keeper Josh Lillis to complete a fine fightback by a teamwhotrailledtwiceinthe first-half to goals from Andy Cannon and Ian Henderson.
Henderson’sarrived from the penalty spot afteraclumsy foul by Jermaine Anderson, a moment that possibly ensured Posh would make a change at half-time and introducetheirmatch-winner.
Poshwereall at sea defensively before the break - they did start with three debutants in the back four - but improved in that respect after it thanks to subtle changes introduced at the interval.
Marcus Maddison delivered the first equaliser with a crisp finish and Chris Forrester, assisted byMaddison, firedhomeasplendidsecond leveller sevenminutesbefore half-time.
Paul Taylor should have shot Posh in front soon after there-start, butDalealsohad their moments, mostly after target man substitute Calvin Andrew had arrived.
It wasn’t pretty. Nor was the winning goal, but Posh won’t care about that. They are off and running.
