Peterborough United 1-3 Sheffield United

Conor Sammon
Conor Sammon is on a season-long loan at Bramall Lane from Derby

On-loan striker Conor Sammon scored twice as Sheffield United won 3-1 at Peterborough United in League One.

He rifled in the opener after a pass from strike partner Billy Sharp, though substitute Souleymane Coulibaly found the far corner to level for Posh.

However, Sammon restored the Blades' lead, steering a Che Adams cut-back past goalkeeper Ben Alnwick.

Jose Baxter sealed the points for the visitors late on when he lashed in from a James Wallace pass.
