A youthful Posh reserve side were beaten 4-0 by Bristol Rovers.
A Peterborough United reserve side, the outfield players made up entirely of the club's under 18s, were beaten 4-0 by Bristol Rovers in the latest league fixture with the experienced Pirates side scoring two goals in each half to condemn David Farrell's men to defeat.
The home side named a strong side for the Central League encounter, with James Clarke, Cristian Montano, Jonny Burn and Bob Harris all named in the starting eleven.
Rovers doubled their lead on the twenty-minute mark when a cross into the area was controlled by James Spruce, who showed some neat footwork to create a shooting opportunity and dug out a finish from close-range which lifted the ball out of reach of Henry.
After the break Rovers continued to create chances and were rewarded with a third goal when left-back Bob Harris surged down the wing and continued his run into the box and finished the move by calmly slotting the ball under the 'keeper. Jay Malpas added a fourth goal late on.
Posh: Henry, Hart, Goode, Cartwright, Freestone, Alban-Jones, Jarvis, Douglas, Borg, L. Maddison, Davison. Subs: Elsom, Ferrier, Connor, Baldry, Fieldhouse.
