Simon Davies’ men pick up a point from 2-2 draw against Colchester United.

The Peterborough United under 18s recorded a 2-2 draw with Colchester United in their last league fixture with Lewis Darlington and a trialist on target leaving manager Simon Davies with mixed emotions at the full-time whistle.

“There were some good parts and some not so good parts. Colchester pretty much matched us up with the diamond, so it was a bit scrappy at times. We were a bit loose defensively and gave away a couple of sloppy goals, but we stayed in the contest and created chances, we just were not ruthless enough with them.

“Lewis has had a frustrating spell with injuries. He is showing signs of the potential that we see in him. He is a goal-scorer so he just needs a run and I am sure he will get that. Lewis just needs to stay fit and he will get his opportunity,” Davies said.

Posh are next in action on Saturday morning against Swansea City.

Posh: Lakin, Bodner, Thomas, Goodley, Tonge, Titchmarsh, McGlinchey, Van Lier, Hickinson, Darlington, Oberton.
