West Brom held off a strong Peterborough fightback to claim three hard-earned points in an enthralling 3-2 victory at London Road.[LNB]Albion were three goals to the good and cruising with 41 minutes on the clock thanks to Luke Moore's brace - the first of which came courtesy of a mistake from Posh keeper Joe Lewis - and Chris Brunt`s first of the season.[LNB]But Peterborough rallied strongly and Craig Mackail-Smith`s diving header gave the hosts hope at the end of a pulsating opening 45 minutes.[LNB]The Championship new-boys flew at the Baggies at the start of the second half and Aaron Mclean pulled another back from close range in the 53rd minute.[LNB]London Road erupted shortly after as Posh again had the ball in the net only to see the `goal` rightly ruled out for a foul on Scott Carson.[LNB]But Albion closed out the game, despite Graham Dorrans` 90th-minute dismissal, to make it seven points from their opening three games.
