IRELAND U21 INTERNATIONAL Jack Taylor scored his first goal in his third appearance for Peterborough United tonight.

Darren Ferguson’s side beat second-place Wycombe 4-0 and they now sit eighth in the League One table, just a point off the play-off places.

Meanwhile, in League Two, former Ireland player Mark Kennedy was left frustrated. Appointed Macclesfield’s manager last week, they went 1-0 up thanks to an own goal from ex-Ireland international Paul Green.

However, Callum Ainley’s 95th-minute goal meant the ex-Man City winger’s side had to settle for a draw.

Fiacre Kelleher — older brother of Liverpool youngster Caoimhín — and Ireland underage international Corey O’Keeffe both completed 90 minutes for Macclesfield, who currently sit 22nd in the table.

Eoin Doyle, who has a remarkable 23 goals this season, is still searching for his first goal since being recalled by Bradford at the beginning of the month from his loan spell at Swindon.

Ex-Ireland U21 player Michael Harriman featured in sixth-place Northampton’s 1-1 draw away to Leyton Orient, while Conor Wilkinson completed 90 minutes for the hosts.
