George Moncur came closest to scoring for Posh reserves in Southend.

Ten players with Football League experience plus young left-back Lewis Freestone started the game, but they were undone by second-half goals from Joe Bedford and Japanese youth international centre-back Dan Matsuzaka.

Posh goalkeeper Dion Henry was unfortunate with both goals as both were scored on the rebound after fine saves.

Summer signing Brad Inman continued his recovery from a broken leg by completing 70 minutes, but on-loan midfielder George Moncur came closest to scoring with a first-half strike that was well saved.
