Experienced Cherries Side Too Strong For Posh

16 November 2016

An expensively-assembled Bournemouth side romp to victory against Posh.

An AFC Bournemouth side that cost close to £17 million eased to a comfortable reserve team success over Peterborough United at the Mick George Training Academy.

A Cherries side including Tyrone Mings, who was purchased from Ipswich Town for a reported £8 million and summer signing Lys Mousset who arrived in the summer from £5.4 million were both in the line-up that ran out 8-1 winners.

Marc Pugh, Marc Wilson and Ryan Fraser were also in the starting line-up and both Pugh and Fraser were a menace from the first whistle.

Brandon Goodship had already missed a second minute penalty after a foul by Jerome Binnom-Williams before he converted from close-range after a glorious move from the visitors.

Mousset and Fraser both struck the woodwork before Emerson Hyndman made it 2-0 after good work from Pugh.

Fraser made it 3-0 before the interval but Posh were not without chances, Mathew Stevens heading over from close-range after a Hayden White centre while Adil Nabi stuck the base of the post after working a short corner with Lee Angol.

Goodship made it 4-0 from a tight angle before Posh reduced the arrears as Angol coolly slotted home from the spot after Nathan Oduwa had been felled in the box.

Mousset and Pugh extended the advantage before substitute Keelan O'Connell got his name on the score-sheet. Goodship completed the rout late on.

Brad Inman completed 70 minutes on his comeback from injury, while Angol got another 90 minutes under his belt.

Posh: Trialist, Binnom-Williams, White, Almeida Santos, Cartwright, Nabi, Oduwa, Inman (sub Freestone 70min), Trialist (sub Stump 85min), Angol, Stevens.
