Oldham   0 - 5   Peterborough

Highlights - Oldham 0-5 Peterborough

Oldham 0-5 Peterborough

Craig Mackail-Smith notched a brace as Peterborough ran riot in the second half to thump sorry Oldham.

Filipe Morais and Sam Mantom both went close for the hosts in the first half.

Posh took the lead when Tommy Rowe slotted home from David Ball's pass before Ball and Gabriel Zakuani headed in from Grant McCann corners.

Mackail-Smith then hit his 18th and 19th league goals of the season - first latching on to George Boyd's pass and then lashing home a superb late volley.

The Latics, who have now failed to score in five consecutive games, are in eighth, six points outside the play-offs.

The result leaves Peterborough in fourth, five points outside the automatic promotion places.


Oldham Athletic player-manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:
"The one thing I only ask of my players is to go out there and have a go and we laid down and let them run over the top of us after the first goal.

"As soon as they scored their goal too many heads went and we crumbled I'm embarrassed to say.

"It's not good enough, I won't accept it and I'll make sure it's the first and only time."

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"It's a really, really top draw performance. Five goals, a clean sheet - you can't really ask for more.

"We had to up it tempo-wise in the second half as we just sparred with them early on and they were on top with possession.

"But our midfield rotated far better after half-time and I'm delighted for the lads because it was a really good performance."
