Ben White was outstanding for Posh at Northampton.

White, a Brighton player who was a substitute as Posh beat Rochdale last weekend, was a comfortable man-of-the-match as Posh beat the Cobblers 2-1 away from home.

“Ben was outstanding,” enthused Posh manager Steve Evans. “He is a top class player.

“Alex Woodyard and Rhys Bennett also played well, while George Cooper was very good in spells.”
