Peterborough United 2-1 Fleetwood Town

Peterborough forward Souleymane Coulibaly
Souleymane Coulibaly scored for Peterborough with his first touch of the game

Jermaine Anderson's third goal in three games secured a nervy, but deserved win for Peterborough over Fleetwood.

Posh missed numerous chances in the first half, with Conor Washington blazing over while Joe Davis' long-range effort hit the bar for Fleetwood.

Within seconds of coming on, substitute Souleymane Coulibaly's first touch of the game eventually broke the deadlock.

Another sub, David Ball, then equalised for the visitors before Anderson's header sealed Peterborough's victory.
