Just over 12 months after they lost out in a penalty shoot-out in the PFA Minor Cup final to Feeder Soccer, FC Peterborough got off to the worst possible start as they conceded an own goal in the first minute of the contest.

​In a close first half Fiddes grabbed Bretton’s second five minutes before the interval when his looping header found the back of the net to put his side in total control.

A spectacular 30-yard effort from Azizullah Sharifi did threaten a comeback as he reduced the arrears after 50 minutes but Fiddes forced home his second and his side’s third on 63 minutes as he drilled home from six yards.
