Harry Beautyman has made nine appearances for Peterborough

Harry Beautyman scored his first goal for Peterborough United to send Yeovil back to the bottom of League One.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who signed from non-league Welling in November, got the last touch to Marcus Maddison's shot to put Posh ahead.

The Glovers were unbeaten in their previous three games, but failed to convert chances in the second half.

Kyle Vassell could have doubled the home side's lead, but put the ball over from two yards out.

Crawley's surprising 2-1 win against Preston meant Yeovil slipped down to 24th, four points from safety.

Posh, meanwhile, moved up to 11th, only two points outside the play-off places.

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"It was a difficult game given the conditions and it was difficult to expect either team to play Barcelona-type football, even if they could.

"Both teams realised it was a long-ball game today.

"The first bit of quality they had going forward, they scored their goal.

"In the second half we gave it a bit of a go without really making their goalkeeper work."
