Three second half goals won the game for Posh and Wellens couldn’t hide his disappointment at full time.

“We had great opportunities after time and time again passing through them but again, we have a lack of movement in the box.
“We need a striker desperately, a good striker at this level who can score goals and can pull off shoulders.
