Edwards Goal Earns Youngsters Victory

2 March 2015

Jonathan Edwards scored the only goal of the game as the Posh under 18s recorded an impressive victory at Milton Keynes Dons.

The Peterborough United under 18s, under the leadership of Kieran Scarff, secured all three points from a tough away fixture at local rivals Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend with Jonathan Edwards scoring the only goal of the game after just two minutes.

Edwards finished well after racing clear and Posh had a hatful of chances to increase the lead, but were particularly wasteful in front of goal.

The Dons did put Posh under a bit of pressure in the second half, but goalkeeper Henrich Ravas was only called upon once in the 90 minutes to make a save and that came in the final two minutes of the encounter.

'We scored very early in the game and to be honest for the next 10 minutes we created about five really good chances, but we failed to take those opportunities. The biggest criticism of the performance was that we were not clinical enough in front of goal.

'We came under a bit of pressure as you would expect, however, Henrich only made one save. We deserved to win the game. I do want us to be better in possession, but we always looked lively on the counter attack and should have finished the game off.

'There was nothing new done, it was just the continuation of what Dave Robertson had done with the players throughout this season. We talked a lot about being resiliant in the performance and they were. The players took what we told them on board and they were very good,' Scarff said.

Posh: Ravas, Luto, Ward, Marshall, Goode, Robinson, Hood, Keating, Da Silva-Lopes, Edwards, Friend. Subs: Lee, Humphrey, Maslen-Jones, Penfold, Barton.
