There were fantastic scenes soon after the final whistle had blown on one of the great days in the history of Peterborough United.

The team won promotion in improbable style. They needed only a point to confirm a top two spot, but in the 65th minute they found themselves 3-0 down and seemingly dead and buried.

What followed, however, will live forever in the memory. Posh found three goals in the final 25 minutes from Sirki Dembele and a Jonson Clarke-Harris double. The promotion was sealed with a penalty from what was almost the final kick of the game, with Clarke-Harris showing no sign of any nerves as he smashed the ball home.

Cue jubilant and unforgettable scenes as seen below...
