Kgosi Ntlhe scored Peterborough's second goal
Ntlhe scored and was then sent of for Peterborough

Peterborough moved to the top of League One after recording a third successive away league win at Colchester.

Conor Washington atoned for a fourth-minute penalty miss by opening the scoring from a Christian Burgess pass.

Kgosi Ntlhe, who would later be sent off for a second bookable offence, doubled the lead after Joe Newell had caused problems in the area.

And, although Freddie Sears pulled one back, Jermaine Anderson clinched Peterborough's win from close range.
