Match gallery: Peterborough 2 Chesterfield FC 0

Struggling pireites succumbed to a goal in each half from Conor Washington as they were beaten 2-0 at Peterborough.

The former Newport County striker headed in the key opener right at the end of a first half that had seen the visitors defend extremely well, with his second coming after some dreadful defending by Chesterfield.

The defeat was the team’s seventh in the league in a row, the worst since 1988 in a season of relegation, and no goals have been scored in the last five of those defeats.

New boss Danny Wilson sat in the stands at London Road observing his new side’s performance and the game will have given him plenty to think about.
