It’s the sweet­est feel­ing to win at sta­dium:mk

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

This vic­tory couldn’t have been any sweeter if it had ar­rived with a vat of ice cream on top.

Beat­ing the team that stole a Foot­ball League place is al­ways pleas­ing. Beat­ing themintheir­plush, yet over­sized, sta­dium with such com­fort left a warm glow in Posh hearts.

Posh were wor­thy win­ners at sta­dium:mk against an MK Dons team tooth­less now they’ve failed to repli­cate their tem­plate for suc­cess the last time they won pro­mo­tion­fromLeagueOne, of bor­row­ing gifted strik­ers from other clubs.

Posh struck af­ter just 67 sec­onds through left-back An­drew Hughes and again 20 min­utes from time when home full-back Ge­orge Bal­dock oblig­ingly headed a Mar­cus Mad­di­son free-kick into his own net. Mad­di­son also claimed the as­sist on­the open­ing­goa­land­should­have rounded off a fine in­di­vid­ual dis­play by adding a third goal in the fi­nal minute.

Dons’ keeper David Martin made a splen­did save to stop that hap­pen­ing to con­firm his sta­tus as the best player in the home team.

The best Posh player was far harder to iden­tify. Cap­tainChrisFor­resterand­teenager Leo Da Silva Lopes were bril­liant in cen­tral mid­field, while Hughes, Jack Bald­win and Michael Bost­wick were so im­mense at the back, vet­eran keeper Mark Tyler was forced into just one dif­fi­cult save in 90 min­utes which he pulled off with aplomb to thwart Daniel Pow­ell.
