League One playoff hopefuls Peterborough United have a six-point gap between themselves and seventh-placed MK Dons after beating Gillingham 2-0 at London Road this evening.

Posh broke the deadlock on 42 minutes when Britt Assombalonga netted his 30th goal of the season with a crisp left-footed strike from inside the penalty area.

Tommy Rowe made sure of the points just before the hour mark with a 25-yard effort that found the top corner via the crossbar.

Gillingham remain 14th in the table, five points clear of the relegation zone.
