Sheffield United 1-2 Peterborough United

Peterborough United struck twice in the final two minutes at Sheffield United to make it two wins from two for caretaker boss Dave Robertson.

The Blades looked set to continue their six-game unbeaten run when Matt Done nodded in after Ben Alnwick saved his initial shot.

But Jack Payne, having already hit the post, levelled in the 88th minute from 20 yards.

And Conor Washington struck at the death to complete a late comeback.

United retain a five-point cushion in the play-offs but Posh, who parted company with boss Darren Ferguson last week, are two points adrift of the top six.
