Marcus Maddison created one goal and scored the other to inspire Peterborough to victory over local rivals MK Dons.Grant McCann’s men struck twice in the space of five minutes early in the second half at a rain-lashed ABAX Stadium.Maddison delivered the corner from which Ryan Tafazolli headed the opener two minutes after the break, and then doubled the advantage himself with a classy individual effort five minutes later as he danced into the box before guiding a low shot past goalkeeper Lee Nicholls.

Dons chief Robbie Neilson responded with a triple change that saw Osman Sow, Robbie Muirhead and Aidan Nesbitt introduced, but it was a member of his starting line-up who had the visitors’ best efforts.Alex Gilbey saw a deflected drive dip just over the bar, had a shot on the turn well blocked by defender Steven Taylor and then tested Posh goalkeeper Jonathan Bond with a fierce low blast.But as Dons drew a blank, only a fine stop from Nicholls prevented substitute Leo Da Silva Lopes from grabbing a third for the hosts late on.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPeterborough1Bond2Shephard27Taylor5Tafazolli3Hughes11Maddison8Forrester20Doughty7EdwardsSubstituted forDa Silva Lopesat 77’minutes9MillerSubstituted forKanuat 79’minutes14MarriottSubstituted forMoriasat 85’minutesSubstitutes6Baldwin10Lloyd-McGoldrick16Morias18Da Silva Lopes19Kanu21Anderson25O’MalleyMK Dons1Nicholls2Williams5Wootton3LewingtonSubstituted forNesbittat 56’minutes25Brittain8Cissé20Tshibola26Gilbey12Golbourne14AgardSubstituted forMuirheadat 56’minutes15SeagerSubstituted forSowat 56’minutesSubstitutes7Ariyibi9Sow10Aneke13Sietsma16Muirhead18McGrandles21NesbittReferee:Carl BoyesonAttendance:6,465Match StatsHome TeamPeterboroughAway TeamMK DonsPossessionHome50%Away50%ShotsHome21Away12Shots on TargetHome12Away7CornersHome8Away6FoulsHome7Away13Live TextPosted at Match ends, Peterborough United 2, MK Dons 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Peterborough United 2, MK Dons 0.Posted at 90’+3′ Attempt saved.
