A brace from Kieran Sadlier plus a Ben Whiteman strike saw Rovers triumph over Posh for the second time this season, again shutting out the division’s top scorers.

And Moore felt off the ball work was as important as play in possession as Rovers ended their five game run without a league victory.

“We were really pleased to get three points,” he said.

“We know what an excellent team Peterborough are in this division. They carry a wonderful goal threat and a good team.

“They’re managed by Darren Ferguson, a good manager who sets them up right man and they’re a strong team.

“So to come here and put in a performance like we have done is really rewarding.

“We knew we had to be strong. We've been working on it over the last couple of days.

“We knew our distances had to be right, our off the ball work had to be right. I thought we tactically got it right.

“It’s not just about tactically getting it right – the players have to carry out the performance and do their jobs and I thought everyone did that.

“We got the important first goal. When you come here you want to get the first goal because if they get it then they can run away with it on a fast pitch

“Once we got the second goal, it took the game away from them and they had to come at us.”
