Sheff Wed   1 - 4   Peterborough

Sheff Wed 1-4 Peterborough

Sheff Wed 1-4 Peterborough

Two George Boyd goals helped Peterborough to a comfortable win at Sheffield Wednesday.

Craig Mackail-Smith raced away to fire the visitors ahead, before Lee Tomlin chipped Owls goalkeeper Nicky Weaver to double the advantage.

Boyd slammed in a third for Posh, before Paul Heffernan pulled one back when he struck from close range.

Boyd sealed the points late on when his soft shot was spilled into his own net by Weaver.


Sheffield Wednesday boss Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"Of course we're disappointed but it's deeper than that, it's anger.

"They need to wake up and smell the roses a little bit because in terms of performance that's not acceptable at Sheffield Wednesday and I doubt very much whether it's acceptable as a profession.

(On Mark Beevers who suffered a damaged cheekbone in the game) "He has a problem with his cheekbone and at the moment it's not good news so we've got a huge issue now because we've only got three centre halves, one of them is injured and the other (Reda Johnson) is shooting off to play for Benin in a 'Mickey Mouse' cup."

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"I was pleased with both halves, although we put in a different type of performance after the break.

"For 20 minutes in the first half they just couldn't live with us and it's a really good result.

"We've got confidence and we won't be getting carried, but you cannot over-estimate how big this result is.
