Peterborough   3 - 2   Reading

Peterborough United 3-2 Reading

Peterborough 3-2 Reading

Peterborough came from two goals behind to beat Reading 3-2 and claim their first win of the season, thanks to George Boyd's injury-time winner.

Reading took the lead through Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick found the net and Simon Church made it 2-0 when he headed home from close range.

Craig Mackail-Smith's header got Posh back in it and Aaron Mclean fired home to level from the edge of the area.

Boyd won it late on with a cheeky backheel to complete the comeback.


Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:

"I said before the game I don't care how we win it, and we won it.

"It was a great game, a game of two halves, but credit to my players they have shown again what character they have got. It could be the turning point.

"We can't afford to draw games at the moment, we need to win them."

Reading manager Brendan Rodgers:
"There is no way we should have come out of the game with anything less than three points.

"We were excellent in the first half when we scored two goals and could easily have led by three or four.

"We knew Peterborough would have to change their system to stop us playing in the second half, but we failed to match them up and were somewhat tactically naive.

"The game sums up our season and will hopefully act as a wake-up call."
