The first Championship goal of Taylor’s career was a cracking 22 yard strike which opened the scoring in a vital 2-1 Posh win.

It’s been a stop-start campaign for Taylor as he recovered from hamstring issues, but he has now played back-to-back 90 minutes for the first time this season.

“It’s been frustrating not to play more,” Taylor admitted. “But the gaffer asked me to trust him and I have. I feel much fitter now.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson added: “It was a great strike by Jack and that was easily his best performance of the season. He was superb.”
