Shrewsbury fight back to beat Posh

Shrewsbury impressively hit back from a goal down to beat Peterborough 3-1.
Gwion Edwards gave Posh a half-time lead but Omar Beckles, Stefan Payne and Lenell John-Lewis completed the fightback for Paul Hurst's third-placed side.
Shrewsbury started brightly and Ben Godfrey fired narrowly wide and Nathan Thomas lifted an effort over the bar.
But Peterborough, needing a win to keep alive their play-off challenge, took the lead in the 14th minute as Edwards cut in from the left and drilled in a low shot from 20 yards.
Craig MacGillivray made an excellent save from Leonardo Da Silva Lopes early in the second half before the hosts pulled level in the 59th minute. Posh were unable to clear a corner and defender Beckles fired home on the turn.
Peterborough striker Danny Lloyd was then denied by a goalline clearance.
Shrewsbury moved in front in the 73rd minute when top scorer Payne pounced on an error from Jack Baldwin to fire home his 14th goal of the season.
Then substitute John-Lewis, set up by Arthur Gnahoua, produced a confident finish in stoppage time to complete a good night's work for Shrewsbury.
