Blackburn racked up a fifth-straight league victory to nudge into third place in the League One table by coming from behind to win at Peterborough.Charlie Mulgrew and a Bradley Dack brace sealed the win after Posh’s Steven Taylor had pinched an early opener.In-form Rovers went straight on the front foot and were denied an early lead by both wasteful finishing and the brilliance of Posh keeper Jonathan Bond.

Dack teed up Richie Smallwood to cross for Dominic Samuel, but the Rovers front man somehow planted a free header from six yards out over the bar.Dack then volleyed high and wide after a clever Samuel knock-down as the visitors pressed on.Then Dack was thwarted by Bond’s stunning double save before the hosts took a shock 11th-minute lead against the run of play.Marcus Maddison was the Posh provider as veteran defender Taylor lost his marker to power in a far-post header from his corner.The goal rocked Blackburn and Grant McCann’s men grew into the game to hold their lead without too many more scares until half-time.Yet it was a different story after the break as Tony Mowbray’s rejuvenated troops hit back with three goals in the opening 13 minutes.Rovers captain Mulgrew turned in Dack’s 48th-minute corner to level. Incredibly, it was the Scottish defender’s fifth goal in his last four League One games.Dack finally got on the score sheet four minutes later by smashing home Richie Smallwood’s pass.Yet Dack’s second goal was pure class, as he finished off a breathtaking counter-attack with a cool first-time finish from Marcus Antonsson’s cross.Jack Marriott hit a stoppage-time consolation from substitute Danny Lloyd’s cross, only for Posh skipper Jack Baldwin to pick up a second yellow card for a foul on Dack.The result sees the visitors move up to third, level on points with second-placed Shrewsbury as Posh drop down three spots to 10th.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPeterborough1Bond27Taylor6BaldwinBooked at 90mins5TafazolliBooked at 90mins3Hughes8ForresterSubstituted forDoughtyat 72’minutes42GrantSubstituted forKanuat 86’minutes21AndersonSubstituted forLloyd-McGoldrickat 66’minutes7Edwards11Maddison14MarriottSubstitutes9Miller10Lloyd-McGoldrick17Penny19Kanu20Doughty25O’Malley32FreestoneBlackburn1Raya2Nyambe14Mulgrew25Downing3Williams11WhittinghamSubstituted forEvansat 32’minutesSubstituted forTomlinsonat 45’minutes6SmallwoodBooked at 61mins23Dack32Conway9SamuelSubstituted forGrahamat 77’minutes20AntonssonBooked at 30minsSubstitutes10Graham13Leutwiler15Ward16Caddis28Tomlinson29Evans38NuttallReferee:Nick KinseleyAttendance:6,164Match StatsHome TeamPeterboroughAway TeamBlackburnPossessionHome47%Away53%ShotsHome11Away12Shots on TargetHome5Away6CornersHome7Away6FoulsHome8Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Peterborough United 2, Blackburn Rovers 3.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Peterborough United 2, Blackburn Rovers 3.BookingPosted at 90’+5′ Ryan Tafazolli (Peterborough United) is shown the yellow card.DismissalPosted at 90’+5′ Second yellow card to Jack Baldwin (Peterborough United) for a bad foul.Posted at 90’+4′ Bradley Dack (Blackburn Rovers) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Posted at 90’+4′ Foul by Jack Baldwin (Peterborough United).Goal!Posted at 90’+3′ Goal!
