IES, sponsored by Hill Piling, travelled to Peterborough in search of another win to get their season going after a thumping win the week before.

However, they discovered a well-organised and enthusiastic Peterborough side that were up for a fight.

IES had the majority of the first half play, coming close through all of the forward line but not really testing the Peterborough keeper.

Stout defending when called upon was the key to the game for IES, with debutant Greg Jones at right back impressing against a speedy home forward line.

IES' Kenyan star Billy Tuitoek, playing in midfield, gained plaudits for his at the death tackling to keep many an attack at bay and help reduce Peterborough to just one effort on goal.

After half time, IES were conceded a penalty corner which was dispatched past Lane at the third attempt despite the ball not leaving the D before the strike.

Just after the goal, IES pushed forward and a Peterborough defender suffered a sickening blow to the knee and the game was stopped for around half an hour before resumption.

Both teams took time to settle back to the game, with IES driving forward yet without reward. Peterborough sat at the back and cleared the ball up the pitch at every opportunity.

IES face a home game against local rivals Felixstowe this Saturday.
