Bristol City celebrate
Luke Freeman has now scored three goals for Bristol City this season

Bristol City moved four points clear at the top of League one with an easy victory at Peterborough United.

Luke Freeman's finish on the turn after good work by Mark Little, and Aaron Wilbraham's header from Joe Bryan's cross, put the Robins 2-0 up.

Marlon Pack's 25-yard volley hit the crossbar, before Freeman added his second after the break when he cut inside after Pack's quick free-kick.

Aaron Mclean went close for the hosts but his shot deflected wide.

It meant a losing second debut for Craig Mackail-Smith, who returned to Peterborough on loan from Brighton on Thursday.
