Big Match Review: Peterborough 2 MK Dons 1

Peterborough United 2-1 Milton Keynes Dons
Saturday September 25, London Road, (Att: 7,838)

Goals either side of half time helped Peterborough on their way to second in League One as they continued their fine home form against Milton Keynes Dons.

The away side had much of the early possession, and went close through Jermaine Easter's toe poke going narrowly wide of goal.

It was slightly against the run of play, therefore, when Peterborough went ahead just past the half hour mark. Craig Mackail Smith latched onto a flick by striking partner Aaron McLean and outpaced the Dons defence before slotting home.

However, just a minute later, Karl Robinson's men had restored parity through Dean Lewington

Posh failed to deal with a long throw into the box and the ball fell to Lewington to smash past Joe Lewis and send the teams into the break all square.

Just three minutes into the second half though, United found the winner. Skipper Grant McCann's delicious corner inviting McLean to power a header into the net.

Chris Whelpdale almost added a third for Gary Johnson's side from another McCann corner, and then Lee Tomlin had a shot blocked by David Martin in the Milton Keynes's goal.

With time running out, Easter went close again from another long throw, but the Buckinghamshire side were unable to find the equaliser as Posh kept up their 100% home record.
