Peterborough United 4-0 Doncaster Rovers

Peterborough United gave former manager Darren Ferguson an unwelcome return to London Road as they thrashed Doncaster Rovers in League One.

Gaby Zakuani nodded Erhun Oztumer's corner home to take the lead, before Oztumer then tapped in a second.

Callum Elder found a third for Posh two minutes after the break before Conor Washington's drive secured victory.

Rovers came close to a consolation through Andy Butler but Michael Bostick cleared his header off the line.
