Sec­ond string Swansea still far too good for Posh

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

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

Wor­ry­ingly, it wasas­core­line which flat­tered Posh. But there was glim­mer of a con­so­la­tion to take from the per­for­mance and that was a thun­der­bolt by sub­sti­tute Leo Da Silva Lopes, the 17-year-old’s first se­nior goal for the club.

The visi­tors dom­i­nated the early pro­ceed­ings as they at­tacked through wingers Nathan Dyer and Jef­fer­son Mon­tero.
