Toney didn’t score, but he was generally outstanding.

A horrible blunder gave Wimbledon a lifeline. The keeper let a soft shot slip through him which changed the flow of the match.
The best of the back four apart from a couple of iffy moments in possession. Covered others well and tackled well.

The left-back looked rusty after his injury lay-off. Lost the ball for the first goal and he was erratic in possession.
A surprisingly unsteady performance. Looked troubled by the gusty wind when the ball was in the air and a couple of clearances charged down.
Fortunately a couple of errors didn't prove costly and won most of his headers.
Busy and always went looking for the ball. Lacks the penetrating pass, but he battled away despite picking up a heavy knock in Friday training.
He might lack a yard of pace, but he played with great energy throughout. An assist for the second goal and just off target with a couple of well-struck shots from distance.
Covered a lot of ground going forward and while defending. Set up the third Posh goal.
Man of the mach but for fluffing a couple of chances. Brilliant goal and does some eye-catching things in possession. Unplayable at times.
He's quiet for spells but comes alive in and around the penaty area. Two high-class finishes and denied a hat-trick by a fine late save.
Just needed a goal to make it a perfect display. Strong, held the ball-up well, creative and also defended well. His run before the second goal was quite brilliant.
An eye-catching 20 minutes after replacing Maddison. Created two golden opportunities for teammates with accurate passes. He's as strong as an ox, but with a silky touch.
Chased and effectively after replacing Reed fo final 20 minutes.
