Peterborough United overturned a 1-0 deficit to crush Ipswich Town 7-1 at London Road.

The visitors were ahead after 23 minutes when Keith Andrews lashed home a volley.

Darren Ferguson's side drew level on the half-hour when Paul Taylor hit home from 25 yards. Lee Tomlin put the Posh in front eight minutes later when he netted from inside the area.

The lead was extended soon after as Taylor bagged his second of the match, while the score was made 4-1 before half-time courtesy of Grant McCann's finish.

Paul Jewell's side were down to 10 men just before the break when Lee Martin made a late challenge on Mark Little.

Ipswich lost another man soon after the interval when Tommy Smith took down Tomlin as he broke clear, with McCann tucking away the resulting spot kick.

McCann's deflected effort made it 6-1 on 56 minutes, before Tomlin completed his hat-trick and the rout by firing in from close range in injury time.
