Show of appreciation

Season ends with Blackpool suffering their heaviest defeat of the season against a side already relegated.

Still an excellent campaign, but this was grim.

Just three minutes added on, thankfully, as Posh almost score a sixth.


89 - GOAL POSH (5-0)

Jack Taylor picks out the top corner from 25 yards.

From bad to worse...

85 - GOAL POSH (4-0)

This time it's Jack Marriott who's left completely unmarked to side-foot home from another wide cross.

Dreadful defending.

I’ve lost count of the number of times Posh have got in behind down the flanks. If their crossing was better they'd have four or five.

Jake Daniels becomes Blackpool's second debutant of the afternoon, replacing Jerry Yates.

He's only 17, remember...

71 - GOAL POSH (3-0)

Easy as you like for Sammie Szmodics, who taps home from inside the six-yard box.

No defender anywhere near him.

A proud moment for Luke Mariette as he makes his debut off the bench.

Sonny Carey the player to make way.

Sonny Carey lofts the ball over a Posh player’s head before drilling just wide. Shot took a deflection on its way towards goal.
