Peterborough 2-3 Bury- Match Report

Divine intervention from Pope sees Posh punishedBury striker Tom Pope jumped off the bench to break the resistance of 10-man Peterborough with his first touch to earn a 3-2 victory at the ABAX Stadium.Pope was unleashed by Shakers boss David Flitcroft in the 81st minute and immediately steered Chris Hussey's corner past Ben Alnwick.It was cruel on Posh who were reduced to 10 men when Erhun Oztumer saw red for his late challenge on Craig Jones after 24 minutes.Bury immediately pressed home their numerical advantage as Leon Clarke struck his eighth goal of the season, but Posh produced a terrific turnaround either side of the interval courtesy of a brace of headers from captain Gaby Zakuani.The DR Congo international glanced in a Marcus Maddison flag-kick to level on 43 minutes and then struck again from Jon Taylor's 49th-minute delivery.Lee Angol squandered a gilt-edged chance to stretch the advantage and that proved costly as captain Nathan Cameron stylishly levelled in the 64th minute when volleying in a Tom Soares flick.And Pope duly arrived to settle the contest, condemning new Posh boss Graham Westley to defeat in his first home game in charge
