Junior Morias bags a brace as Posh snatch 3-2 reserve victory.
The Peterborough United reserves came from behind to secure a 3-2 victory over their Colchester United counterparts at the Mick George Training Academy with recent signing Junior Morias bagging a second half brace.
The visitors were 1-0 up early in the first half, but Morias levelled with a fierce effort into the top corner from 18-yards only for the U's to nudge ahead once more, Tariq Issa scoring his second of the game.
The Posh management team threw on Matthew Stevens with a few mintues to play and the change worked with Stevens nodding the ball into the path of Morias, who took advantage of a slip from U's keeper George Phillips to drill home with his left-foot into the bottom corner.
Posh goalkeeper Dion-Curtis Henry did make one fine save at 2-2 while new signing Dominic Ball completed 90 minutes at centre back.
Posh: Henry, White, Binnom-Williams, Goode (sub Cartwright), Ball, Nabi, Inman (sub Stevens), Chettle, Samuelsen, Morias, Coulthirst. Unused subs: Elsom, Borg, Freestone.
