Manager Kenny Jackett agreed a two-year extension to remain in the hotseat until 2021 before his side’s trip to the ABAX Stadium. But there was no victory to toast the deal as Posh top scorer Jack Marriott’s 58th-minute opener was followed by a Matt Clarke own goal before Conor Chaplin pulled one back for Pompey. Both sides hit the woodwork in a low-key first half, with Gwion Edwards firing against the crossbar for the hosts before Pompey striker Curtis Main hit the outside of a post.

The deadlock was eventually broken when Marriott converted a glorious Marcus Maddison cross to grab his 13th goal of the season. Maddison was again the supplier when the hosts doubled their lead in the 70th minute as his free-kick was headed into his own net by Clarke. Substitute Chaplin saw one effort cleared off the line before scoring with 12 minutes to go.Chaplin pounced after Danny Rose had been denied by goalkeeper Conor O’Malley, but Posh held firm to triumph.Match report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPeterborough25O’Malley6Baldwin27Taylor5TafazolliSubstituted forHughesat 45’minutes7EdwardsBooked at 86mins42GrantBooked at 54mins20Doughty11MaddisonSubstituted forAndersonat 85’minutes18Da Silva Lopes10Lloyd-McGoldrick14MarriottSubstitutes1Bond3Hughes8Forrester9Miller17Penny19Kanu21AndersonPortsmouth1McGee26Evans6BurgessBooked at 69mins9Hawkins5Clarke4Rose33Close18Lowe22Naismith11KennedySubstituted forDonohueat 82’minutes14MainSubstituted forChaplinat 64’minutesSubstitutes7O’Keefe17Donohue19Chaplin20Thompson23Bennett30May35BassReferee:Craig HicksAttendance:5,217Match StatsHome TeamPeterboroughAway TeamPortsmouthPossessionHome53%Away47%ShotsHome8Away5Shots on TargetHome2Away2CornersHome7Away5FoulsHome10Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Peterborough United 2, Portsmouth 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Peterborough United 2, Portsmouth 1.Posted at 90’+4′ Attempt blocked.
