Video Highlights of Peterborough United 5-4 Bolton Wanderers

Someone PLEASE stop the goals - Dean Mouhtaropoulos

It was an exciting match, you do have to give it that, but not an one from a Bolton perspective. Only the Bolton Wanderers could score 4 goals away from the Reebok and still manage to lose.

The first half started with an unfortunate bang, as bottom of the league Peterborough managed to get two goals past Adam Bogdan in the opening 6 minutes. The Hungarian was badly let down by his defense, specifically speaking Zat Knight. On the first goal, Knight let a pass go through to the waiting Lee Tomlin, who gave the keeper no chance at all. Just a few minutes later it was once again Knight who was at fault, miscuing a clearance which defected into the path of Dwight Gayle to be volleyed home. The rest of the half was dominated by Posh, until the dying minutes when Sam Ricketts was brought down in the box. Keith Andrews stepped up to the spot and gave Bolton a very undeserved goal going into half time.

On the other side of the break, Peterborough's spirits were not dampened though, as in the 47th minute, George Thorne managed to run past 2 defenders, and get the shot off before 2 more could be bothered to close him down, bringing Peterborough's lead back up to 2 goals. However, the arrival of Marvin Sordel and Benik Afobe in the 50th minute seemed to remind Bolton that they were meant to be playing football, and 6 minutes later, Afobe was brought down in the box for another penalty. Once again Andrews stepped up and once again he converted the chance. 3-2, game on.

Posh were not put off by this. Mark Little took advantage of acres of undefended space in Bolton's box, and shot into the top right corner of the net. In the 83rd minute, Gabriel Zakuani rose above his marker to head the ball home, and as he probably thought, to put the game to bed at 5-2. Bolton, on the other hand had other ideas, scoring two goals in 2 minutes, from subs Afobe and Martin Petrov. In the end, it wasn't quite enough and the match ended 5-4.
