Youngsters Beat Dons

18 August 2014

Posh under 18s continue excellent start to season with victory over Milton Keynes Dons.

The Peterborough United under 18s continued their excellent start to the campaign with a 2-1 victory over the Milton Keynes Dons at Nene Park Academy on Saturday morning.

It means seven points from a possible nine for Dave Robertson's men, who thoroughly deserved this latest win after a dominant first half display.

Posh created a host of chances in front of goal with Jonny Edwards striking the woodwork with a thunderous drive.

It was Edwards who did find the back of the net to give Posh the lead and it was doubled when Liam Marshall converted from close range after excellent approach play from Harry Anderson.

The Dons, managed by former Posh player and coach David Oldfield, produced a spirited effort in the second half and reduced the arrears, but Posh held on.

Robertson said: 'I was very pleased with the players in the first half. They played some excellent football and we should have scored more goals. I said at half-time that the Dons would come out and make it competitive in the second half and that is what happened.

'They played in one or two different areas of the pitch, but we coped well defensively and I thought we definitely deserved the three points. Liam Marshall has made a great start to his season, we are playing him a bit further forward because we feel he can influence the game.

'He put in a very good performance in front of representatives from Scotland and I was delighted with the run that yielded his goal. He timed it very well,' Robertson said.

Posh: Henry, Robinson (sub Keating 46min), Hood, Luto, Marshall, Palmer, Baldry, Maslen-Jones, Edwards, Anderson, Friend.
