Posh U18s secure third win on the bounce in the league.
Peterborough United U18s recorded an impressive 4-1 victory over Millwall U18s in the Under-18 Professional Development League on Saturday morning as Tyler Winters made it four goals in two games after a brace against The Lions.
Posh opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time as Dennis Kelmendi found Harry Titchmarsh just on the edge of the box, he slid the ball through to Tyler Winters and he fired his effort across the goalkeeper and into the far corner.
Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s men doubled their lead five minutes into the second half as Winters’ sent a low cross into the box and Reuben Marshall was there, coolly slotting his first-time effort past the goalkeeper to score his 23rd goal of the season.
Posh were awarded a penalty on 68 minutes as Titchmarsh was brought down inside the box and Winters stepped up to take the spot-kick, firing his into the roof of the net. The hosts pulled a goal back on 83 minutes after some lovely build-up play from The Lions on the edge of the box before slotting the ball home at the back-post.
Posh extended their advantage in injury-time as Torin Ntege nicked the ball off the defender and went on a brilliant run towards the byline before sliding the ball across to a completely free Tom Unwin on the six-yard box and he slotted home from close-range.
Speaking on the game, Campbell-Ryce said: “First half we weren't up to the standard we would expect, but after the break, we were really good, competed more for first and second balls and then we just played our game. We were probably lucky to go in one-nil up at half-time and just wasn’t happy with the performance, but in the second half I thought we were outstanding and was really clinical, playing some brilliant football.
“The only downside about the game was obviously Joel [Odei-Larbi], who we were all excited to be back, but he has had a slight setback after rolling his ankle in the game and meant we had to finish with 10 players in the closing stages.”
Posh XI: West, Dornelly, Toynton, Rose, Mills, Marcon, Titchmarsh, Challinor, Kelmendi, Winters, Marshall.
Subs: McCann, Ntege, Changunda, Odei-Larbi, Unwin.
