Peterborough   5 - 4   Swindon

Peterborough 5-4 Swindon

Peterborough 5-4 Swindon

A late Kevin Amankwaah own-goal gave Peterborough a 5-4 win over Swindon.

Posh went three up, Craig Mackail-Smith heading in Mark Little's cross, then slotting home from Grant McCann's pass, before a Lee Frecklington strike.

Swindon hit back through David Ball's 12-yard shot, Matt Ritchie's 25 yard blast and another composed Ball finish.

George Boyd drilled home for Posh, the Robins levelled with a Charlie Austin penalty, but Amankwaah put a low cross into his own net in injury time.

The five-goal thriller moved Peterborough into second place, while Swindon slipped down to 16th.

Posh were on course for a routine victory due to Mackail-Smith's early double, and were even more comfortable after Frecklington slotted home from Aaron McLean's delicate pass.

But on-loan striker David Ball's neat left-foot finish was followed by a goalkeeping error from Posh's Joe Lewis, as he allowed himself to be beaten by Matt Ritchie's long-range strike.

Ball rounded Lewis to level the scores, before Peterborough's George Boyd picked up a Tommy Rowe cut-back and slotted home.

The Bees levelled again when Charlie Lee handballed to allow Austin to score from the spot, but Amankwaah connected with a low Nathaniel Mendez-Laing cross to put the ball into his own net in the third minute of injury time.


Swindon boss Danny Wilson told BBC Wiltshire:
"The first 20 minutes was absolutely shocking.

"Their first two attacks, straight through the heart of us. Its just incredible

"To get back to 4-4 as we did was a great effort then schoolboy errors and we end up running the ball in our own net."
