Peterborough reached the second round of the Carling Cup after a comfortable win over League One side Wycombe.
Posh striker Aaron McLean put the Championship outfit ahead when he drilled home from a tight angle.
Tommy Rowe fired into the bottom-left corner to make it 2-0 and midfielder George Boyd added a third in the second half with a blistering 25-yard shot.
Midfielder Lee Frecklington made sure of victory with a goal from close range after good work by Shaun Batt.
Wycombe manager Peter Taylor told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"I don't think the score flattered them, they are a very good team and some of their play was superb.
"I was annoyed by our defending for the first goal as it was a basic set-piece. If we do not clear that up we will be conceding a lot of goals this season.
"We have no complaints about the result and we just have to pick things up and move on."
