The Peterborough United reserve team came from behind to record a 3-2 victory at Mansfield Town on Tuesday afternoon in a behind closed doors friendly with striker Junior Morias continuing his recent good form in front of goal by scoring one of the goals.

The Posh side showed excellent character to bounce back from a 2-0 deficit to secure the win with defender Jack Baldwin and attacking midfielder Danny Lloyd also on the score-sheet against the Stags.

Manager Grant McCann said: “It was a very good second half performance. We were unfortunate to be behind in the game, but the lads showed good character to come back and win the game. The young professionals and the experienced players dug in and we thoroughly deserved to win the fixture.”

Jermaine Anderson, Leo Da Silva Lopes, Joe Ward, Idris Kanu and Michael Doughty all got minutes under their belt while young defenders Lewis Freestone and Sam Cartwright also featured.
