Peterborough United 4-0 Wycombe Wanderers

Peterborough ended a run of seven games without victory in emphatic fashion, running out 4-0 winners over 10-man Wycombe.

In what proved to be a very one-sided encounter, Ivan Toney converted from the spot in the 23rd minute following a controversial decision that saw Giles Phillips sent off for the visitors.

Siriki Dembele added a second just before the break on his return to the side following a three-game ban, before Jack Taylor and Toney wrapped things up with fine finishes.

A drab affair came to life when QPR loanee Phillips was adjudged to have pushed Sammie Szmodics over in the area and was duly given his marching orders.

Toney stepped up and fired home his 18th goal of the season from the spot before teeing up Dembele for the second in the 44th minute.

Taylor put the result beyond doubt in the 56th minute with a curling 20-yard strike following Toney's neat dummy from Dembele's pass, while Toney lashed home a fourth with 17 minutes to go when Chairboys goalkeeper Ryan Allsop cleared Reece Brown's shot into his path.
