Fleetwood Town 2-0 Peterborough United

Wes Burns scored his fifth goal in eight games as Fleetwood Town beat Peterborough to move closer to League One safety.

The on-loan Bristol City striker fired home after a one-two with Bobby Grant.

Fleetwood goalkeeper Chris Maxwell saved Michael Bostwick's penalty after Shaquile Coulthirst was fouled by Eggert Jonsson, whose second-half header sealed victory.

Victory lifted Fleetwood into 19th, one point above the relegation zone.
