The home side went ahead in just the fifth minute when on-loan West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson headed home Jay Spearing's corner.

Bolton continued to dominate after the early goal and David N'Gog and Lee Chung-Yong fired just over.

Dougie Freedman had to make a chance midway through the half when Mark Davies picked up a knock and Stuart Holden had to come on in his place.

With 10 minutes left of the half Dawson almost found a second but couldn't quite find the net from another Spearing corner.

Posh almost stole an equaliser before the break but Nathaniel Mendez-Laing mis-hit a volley from six yards and the ball bobbled wide.
