Peterborough continue play-off push with win over 10-man Oldham

Peterborough United continued their push for a League One play-off spot with a 3-0 home win against 10-man Oldham Athletic.
Junior Morias, debutant George Cooper and Jack Marriott scored in the second-half, with the visitors ending the match with 10 men after first-half substitute George Edmundson was sent off.
Relegation threatened Oldham are now without a win in eight league matches.
Morias made the breakthrough eight minutes after the break, curling home a right-footed shot from 20 yards which found the corner of the net.
Latics had to play the last 25 minutes with a disadvantage after Edmundson, who was booked in the first-half for shoving Morias, received a second yellow card for pulling back Marriott.
The visitors nearly equalised when Dan Gardner's shot from 20 yards hit the base of the post, before Cooper, who signed midweek from Crewe, took Chris Forrester's superb slide-rule pass inside the area and found the corner after 84 minutes.
Five minutes later Marriott, who was tripped inside the area by Gardner, sent goalkeeper Johny Placide the wrong way for his 19th league goal of the season.
