Five-star Posh crush LaticsPeterborough kept up their bid for automatic promotion from League One with a crushing 5-0 victory at Oldham.The home side were ripped apart after half-time and their own play-off hopes are fading after a dismal run of five games without a goal.Peterborough passed by early chances for George Boyd and Gabriel Zakuani, who failed to hit the target with a header from six yards.Filipe Morais drilled wide for Oldham while Posh's Craig Mackail-Smith should have done better after finding acres of space inside the box.The visitors broke through after 49 minutes as Boyd seized on poor defending and sent in a left-wing cross which Tommy Rowe calmly slotted into the bottom corner from eight yards.Rowe turned provider only three minutes later, heading back across goal for David Ball to nod home a simple close-range header.The blitz continued as Zakuani rose unmarked six yards out to head in Grant McCann's corner from the right.And Mackail-Smith made it four goals in 20 minutes when he raced clean through behind Oldham's defence and comfortably beat keeper Ben Amos from 14 yards.The rout was ended by Mackail-Smith, who hit a stunning volley into the far corner from just inside the box for his 26th goal of the season.
