Midfielder Lee Frecklington was on the score-sheet as the Peterborough United reserve team beat Northampton Town 2-1 at Sixfields on Tuesday afternoon.
Frecklington converted a first half penalty after Jaanai Gordon had been upended in the box and the lead was doubled when Jonson Clarke-Harris fired home with his left-foot.
Goalkeeper Joe Day made a few decent stops in the second half, but was powerless to stop the Cobblers from reducing the arrears when a poor back pass allowed the striker to nip in and score.
Irishman Daniel Kearns came close to making it 3-1, while Emile Sinclair was denied by the goalkeeper.
