Tooth­less Lions no match for a ram­pant Posh side

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Posh ended Mill­wall’s un­beaten start to the sea­son in em­phatic style with this thump­ing vic­tory.

Neil Har­ris’ Mill­wall side - who were los­ing fi­nal­ists in the League One­play-offs last sea­son - looked com­pletely out-of-sorts from­start to fin­ish but­that­shouldn’tde­tract fro­ma­su­per­ball-roundPosh per­for­mance.

Mar­cusMad­di­son’ssix­th­minute opener had an el­e­ment of for­tune about it as his cross from the right touch­line evaded the Lions de­fend­ers and­sailed into the net.

Yet Paul Tay­lor’s fin­ish, just 90 sec­onds later, was more em­phatic as he drilled alow­shot­pastJor­danArcher af­ter good work from strike part­ner Tom Ni­chols.

Ni­chols’ was also the provider for goal num­ber three. as his deft chip al­lowed Ed­wards to head past Archer on 20 min­utes.

Th­e­same­pair com­bined to put the game to bed on 52 min­utes, as Ed­wards tucked away Ni­chols’ cross from­close range.

Ni­chols then got his re­ward for three as­sists when he slot­ted in the re­bound af­ter Archer failed to hold Jer­maine An­der­son’s shot.

Steve Mori­son grabbed a late goal for the visi­tors fir­ing through the legs of goal­keeper Ben Al­nwick from closerange, yet it was hardly any con­so­la­tion. Grant McCann’s men ran riot at times and could have eas­ily scored more than the five they man­aged.

Tom Ni­chols cel­e­brates scor­ing his goal.
