Su­per-sub si­lences the moan­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

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.
