MATLOCK SEE OFF CHALLENGE OF PETERBOROUGH
MATLOCK were pushed all the way at relegation-threatened Peterborough before emerging with a bonus-point victory.
The Derbyshire visitors ran in five tries to claim a sixth successive victory – and remain in touch with the Midlands One East leaders.
Henri Packard bagged a brace, with Chris Young, Dan Hooton and George Whittaker touching down as well.
Young also kicked two penalties and two conversions for Alan Johnson's men.
"I'd never won at Peterborough before as a player or coach, so I was pleased," said Johnson.
"They are a good side and I don't know how they are in the position they are.
"They're a big aggressive side and pushed us hard.
"We knew it would be a very different game from the home games against them and we were happy to come away with a bonus-point win.
"They were leading early on and it was pretty much to and fro throughout the match.
"We got our fourth try about 10 minutes into the second half, which took a bit of pressure off but Peterborough didn't give up and gave us a really good game."
