AN assured performance from the City of Ely saw them score a memorable 5-1 win over Peterborough 3.

City have been growing in confidence in stature in recent weeks and Chris Purllant's men started with their usual pace and skill, opening the scoring early on through Tim Reynolds who deflected home.

Shortly after the home side doubled their lead when a long aerial ball into the circle allowed Matt Holden to deflect the ball first time past the stranded Borough keeper.

Ely continued to dominate the game and further extended their lead through another solo effort from Matt Holden who rounded the keeper to calmly finish into an open net.

Ely restructured at half time and continued to pressurise the Peterborough goal in the second half. A clever aerial ball by Joel Gilmour again split the visiting defence allowing skipper Purllant to round the Peterborough sweeper and fire another blistering shot inside the post.

Peterborough reduced the deficient with a fearsome strike from a short corner late on but the lead was soon restored via a well placed drag flick from Joel Gilmour.
