A trip to the cathedral city of Peterborough beckoned for IES on Saturday to visit the team second placed side in Division Two North.

Boasting a full squad apart from the ill Scott Cole, IES welcomed new boy James Ashton and returning midfielder Robbie Boulter into the side.

Peterborough started well, forcing IES into deep defence that held firm as ever. The home side took the lead following a dubious penalty corner decision. The Peterborough skipper drove his shot straight through Lane's legs to make it one nil.

IES created a few chances in the first half but nothing to write home about.

The second half saw a similar pattern, with more IES chances, but they capitulated when Peterborough's lively winger slipped the ball across the goal to centre forward whose shot came back to him and he batted it into the net.

Two nil down and IES were looking dead and buried until a neatly worked penalty corner move found James Ashton to open his account with a low drilled shot. David Taylor added a second corner strike shortly afterwards to even up the scores.

Taylor then put his side one up with a cracking shot that no keeper would have saved. IES looked to have snatched the points but a lapse in their otherwise stout defence allowed the injured Peterborough centre forward to dive in and reverse the ball home.

Overall, a fair result and a good point for IES who on Saturday travel to top of the table Cambridge City in search of revenge for their opening game loss.
