And the Peterborough Telegraph’s man at the match agreed...

A fantastic bounce back to form for the goalkeeper. Two excellent saves, one at the end of each half, at vital times will do wonders for his confidence.
Excellent defensive positioning for the most part and a cracking long ball led to Ivan Toney's goal.

Hard to believe he was playing for King's Lynn last season as he is so comfortable and composed in everything he does.
Very good against a fine young striker in Tyler Walker. Unruffled defensively and good on the ball.
This was more like the commanding centre-back Posh were convinced they had signed. Should have scored at 0-0 though.
A superb 20-yard strike turned the game decisively in Posh's favour and capped a strong midfield display. His late sending-off was a shame.
The midfield dynamo must burn up a lot of calories in a game as he never stops running. Should trust himself more in and around the area more by shooting when the chance arises.
Posh fans have to accept he's a different player these days. He worked hard throughout and really shone when switched centrally late on.
4/10 first half when little came off for him and 8/10 after the break when he was more like his high-class self so 6/10 on average.
Northing wrong with his effort levels, but Lincoln left very little space for him to run into. His substitution for Dembele changed the game.
His manager hinted afterwards he was too good for League One. The big striker put himself about in this game before delivering a sumptuous finish to seal victory.
His fast feet and speedy running unsettled the visiting defence. Two players cautioned for fouling him and he played a huge part in the opening goal.
Sent on for added time after Reed's dismissal. Did what he had to do.
