Peterborough caretaker boss Dave Robertson enjoyed a winning start as his side comfortably beat Bradford.

Academy manager Robertson, who was put in charge following Darren Ferguson's departure last weekend, saw Posh go ahead as Gaby Zakuani bundled in.

Michael Bostwick's last-minute penalty sealed the victory after Alan Sheehan handled Harry Beautyman's cross.

Bradford created few clear chances as Sheehan's shot was saved by Ben Alnwick and Andy Halliday volleyed over.

The victory for Posh sees them move up to 10th in League One, four points off a play-off spot while the Bantams drop to eighth.
