Talk of a ‘great escape’ illuminated Twitter after just a second away win of the season and a first Championship success in 16 matches.

Posh fans were delighted with the performance of several players with Jack Marriott, the scorer of a worldie goal, collecting the most man-of-the-man match nominations.

Too late...or is it? MOM Grant McCann for telling JCH to get ‘concussed’ and the club doctor for confirming what was obvious to all.
