Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson hailed match-winner George Boyd after seeing his side continue their bid for promotion with a 3-0 home win over Exeter. Boyd grabbed two goals and laid on the other for Craig Mackail-Smith less than 48 hours after becoming a father for the first time. Ferguson said: "Everyone is pleased for George with the arrival of his little girl and he certainly celebrated in some style. "His couple of goals were really important in a tough game. He linked up well with Craig for the second of them and then returned the compliment for Craig to get our third. "I have to be happy with a 3-0 result after a thoroughly professional and disciplined display with keeping a clean sheet especially pleasing. "We have looked a lot more solid defensively of late and that is a real plus as the games come thick and fast, but when winning we just want them to keep coming."
