Peterborough ended a dismal season on a high with victory over fellow relegated club Plymouth.
Chris Clark fed Bradley Wright-Phillips, who gave Plymouth a 31st-minute lead with a neat finish.
Craig Mackail-Smith levelled with his 10th of the season on 63 minutes after Liam Dickinson's superb backheel.
Mackail-Smith made it 2-1 six minutes later when he headed in Tommy Rowe's free-kick, but Plymouth were unlucky to see Alan Judge's free-kick hit the bar.
Plymouth boss Paul Mariner:
We were absolutely spent - Mariner
"It was a classic end-of-season game on a horrible, bumpy pitch.
"It's the first time for a long time we have taken the lead and I was interested to see how the players handled the situation.
"The second half we came out flat and then we conceded some soft goals."
Peterborough boss Gary Johnson: "It was an important win.
"The boys have put in a good effort for me in the last four weeks. We haven't always had the quality but today we had the effort and a little bit of quality.
"We had a few chances and Plymouth had a few, but there were people putting themselves on the line and that's what you need to win matches."
