Peterborough   2 - 1   Rochdale

Peterborough 2-1 Rochdale

Highlights - Peterborough 2-1 Rochdale

Aaron Mclean and Craig Mackail-Smith took their combined tally of goals this season to 28 as Peterborough United beat Rochdale at London Road.

Mclean put Posh ahead with a low drive from 18 yards before Mackail-Smith made it 2-0, slotting through debut keeper Luke Daniels' legs after the break.

Substitute Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro pulled one back late on, avoiding a suspicion of handball to fire a stunning volley.

Dale were denied an equaliser when Gaby Zakuani blocked Jason Kennedy's effort.

It was Peterborough's first league in over a month - but they could have been behind by the time Mclean slammed home his 14th goal of the season on 18 minutes.

Lee Tomlin was then a whisker away from a e book second goal just after the half-hour, exchanging passes with both Grant McCann and George Boyd before rolling wide.

But Posh doubled their advantage eight minutes into the second period when Mackail-Smith matched Mclean's tally of 14.

He slipped his third goal in four games through the legs of debutant Daniels, signed on an emergency loan from West Bromwich Albion to solve Dale's keeping crisis.

Visiting boss Keith Hill responded with an attacking double substitution that saw the introduction of Anthony Elding and Akpa Akpro, who appeared to take down a long pass with his arm before firing home.

But defender Zakuani then denied Kennedy just as he was about to pull trigger, to ensure Posh's first league win since 2 November.


Peterborough United boss Gary Johnson said:

"I am very pleased with the win. We deserved it and looked assured on the ball.

"We created lots of opportunities and played some good football."
