Posh fans are daring to dream after derby day win as ‘a fortress made out of mud has never looked so strong’ and well done Sammie Szmodics for getting his captain out of jail!

Peterborough United fans were understandably delighted as a seventh straight Football League win over local rivals Northampton Town pushed them closer to promotion from League One last night (April 16).

Man-of-the-match Sammie Szmodics scored twice and Jonson Clarke-Harris grabbed his 30th goal of the season in all competitions as Posh won 3-1 at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Cobblers did equalise late in the first half after Posh skipper Mark Beevers conceded a penalty.

Positive performance. Now we dare to dream. MOM Szmodics
