Fleetwood Town 2-3 Peterborough United

Peterborough United scored twice in the final three minutes as they came from behind to win at Fleetwood Town.

The Cod Army went in front through Amari'i Bell's shot, before Michael Doughty headed in to make it 1-1.

Cian Bolger's close-range effort then looked to have won it for Fleetwood with eight minutes remaining.

But strikes from Jack Marriott and Danny Lloyd completed a dramatic turnaround, although there was still time for Devante Cole to hit the bar.

Victory for Peterborough moves them up to eighth in League One, three points off the play-off places, while Fleetwood are 15th.
