Szmodics strikes on Blackburn debut, two goals apiece for former Peterborough United midfielders, ex-Posh boss going well, and Marcus Maddison's brief debut for Darlington
Szmodics, who left Posh for Ewood Park in a reported £2.5 million deal last week, opened the scoring with a cool finish in an impressive 3-0 win at Russell Martin’s Swansea.
In League One former Posh loanee Kyle Dempsey scored twice as Bolton Wanderers beat Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 and ex-Posh youth team player Jevani Brown continued his strong start to the season with two goals in Exeter City’s 4-0 home win over Port Vale.
Bali Mumba helped win a penalty for Plymouth Argyle, but they went down 2-1 at Fleetwood ahead of two games coming up against Posh at Home Park.
In League Two Stevenage scored two very late goals to come from behind and beat Stockport County 2-1. It’s two wins out of two for a team managed by former Posh boss Steve Evans.
Doncaster Rovers also scored twice late on to pip Sutton United 2-1. Ex-Posh skipper Tommy Rowe assisted on the first Rovers goal with one-time Posh loanee Kieran Agard netting the winner.
Darlington play in the same division as Peterborough Sports this season. Sports gave a debut to former Posh Under 23s skipper Kyle Barker who was sent off two minutes into the second-half.
