Terrorised over 45 minutes by a second-string Swansea side, Posh will be glad they salvaged some pride before a crunch trip to MK Dons on Saturday.
The under-strength Premier League side made 10 changes for their visit to the ABAX Stadium for an EFL Cup tie but they absolutely dismantled the home side with three goals before halftime
