This result followed up their 2-1 home victory over Bristol Rovers on the opening weekend of the 2018/19 campaign, and has left Posh with a 100% record so far this year.
The feeling around the camp is bound to be good, and that sentiment was echoed by the players, who took to Twitter following yesterday’s victory.
The Posh fans were unbelievable yesterday according to Ryan Tafazolli, who also said that they were the 12th man that helped them pick up a victory.

Posh went a goal behind early on at Rochdale, but they stuck together to come back, and that is something that captain Alex Woodyard was really pleased with.
Great togetherness and spirit from the lads today to go a goal behind and win comfortably away from home. Fans we’re excellent #posh.
