That was harsh on Posh who had been the better side for most of the match. George Cooper was dnied by a fine save before Callum Cooke delivered a fine finish to put Posh ahead at the break.

Big Osman Sow equalised for Dons early in the second-half, but Isaac Buckley-Ricketts fired home what looked like being the winning goal on the hour mark.

Central defender Sebastien Bassong played for Posh, but is expected to leave the club when his contract expires this month.

Posh fielded a trialist which wasn’t Lee Tomlin who is expected to sign for Posh on loan from Cardiff tomorrow (January 8).

Posh: Chapman, Denton, Bassong, Cartwright, Lyon, Cooke, Buckley-Ricketts, Stevens, Anderson, Cooper, Trialist.

Moore; Baudry (Kasumu 65), Jackson, Hancox; D’Ath, Cisse, Watson, Trialist; Harley (Asonganyi 46); Simpson, Sow (Pattison 71).
