Jack Marriott nets again as Posh end losing run

Peterborough snapped a four-match losing run when enjoying a final home hurrah by beating Fleetwood 2-0.
League One's leading scorer Jack Marriott and George Cooper provided the second-half goals at the ABAX Stadium.
Marriott produced a fine full-stretch finish six minutes into the second half to register his 33rd goal of a prolific campaign.
And Cooper sealed the points with 12 minutes to go when delivering an exquisite finish to a fine cross from recently-introduced substitute Danny Lloyd.
Only the woodwork prevented Posh, who have faded out of play-off contention, from winning far more emphatically.
Anthony Grant blasted against the underside of the crossbar early on before Fleetwood goalkeeper Chris Neal reacted smartly to tip a mis-directed header from Ashley Eastham against the bar.
Gwion Edwards saw Neal fumble his rocket shot against the bar just before the hour.
Fleetwood full-back Lewis Coyle was also frustrated by the woodwork when curling a stoppage-time effort against the angle of post and bar.
