MATCH REPORT: Junior at the double, but Peterborough United are beaten
Junior Morias scored twice and Idris Kanu netted with an outstanding individual effort, but Peterborough United were still beaten in an '˜under 23' league game in Southend today (January 16).
Southend won 4-3 after a richly entertaining contest which included a couple of fine Posh comebacks.
Theo Robinson headed Southend in front from a Harry Phillips corner and the same source supplied a second home goal when Harry Kyprianou nodded home.
Morias reduced the deficit from the penalty spot and Kanu equalised after a mazy dribble before the break.
Southend regained the lead through Amadou Ba early in the second-half, but Morias equalised with a clever backheeled shot.
A corner finally settled the outcome as Kyprianou converted another Phillips cross.
