Peterborough   3 - 0   Scunthorpe

Peterborough 3-0 Scunthorpe

Peterborough 3-0 Scunthorpe

Peterborough's George Boyd celebrated breaking a club record for consecutive appearances in midweek with two goals to help sink Scunthorpe.

Boyd, playing in his 126th straight game for Posh here, opened the scoring with a fine finish.

It was Boyd's pass which allowed Craig Mackail-Smith to double the lead, running through and finishing coolly.

Boyd scored the third himself from the spot after Michael O'Connor had tripped the onrushing Charlie Lee in the box.

Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson:
"I asked for a response from the players and that is exactly what I got.

"The manner of our defeat in Doncaster in midweek really hurt me. It was probably the worst performance in the near three years I've been here.

"We were very clear and deserving winners. If we perform to this standard on a regular basis we will be fine."

Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins:
"Goals change games and it was Peterborough who put their chances away.

"The second goal on the stroke of half-time was a real killer. Jordan made a costly mistake and that left us with a mountain to climb.

"But Peterborough is a seriously tough place to visit. You don't just turn up here and get a win."
