The visitors claimed a a point with an 88th-minute strike from Lawson D’Ath.

That was harsh on Posh who had been the better side for most of the match. George Cooper was dnied by a fine save before Callum Cooke delivered a fine finish to put Posh ahead at the break.

Big Osman Sow equalised for Dons early in the second-half, but Isaac Buckley-Ricketts fired home what looked like being the winning goal on the hour mark.
