Dickinson's posh heroics

A debut goal from Liam Dickinson helped Peterborough's fight against relegation from the Coca-Cola Championship as they came from behind to beat fellow strugglers Ipswich 3-1.

Roy Keane's side had the better of the first 45 minutes and went ahead through Daryl Murphy's third goal in as many games since joining on loan from Sunderland.

Grant Leadbitter delivered a corner from the left which Posh 'keeper Joe Lewis failed to claim, and Murphy was left free to head into an empty net from on the line.

However, Dickinson curled a free-kick around the wall and into the bottom corner two minutes into the second half.

Dickinson made a goal for midfielder Lee Frecklington just after the hour mark as manager Jim Gannon picked up his second successive home win since replacing Mark Cooper this month. Defender Craig Morgan added a third late on to add some gloss to the victory.
