Loads of Peterborough United fans have reacted to striker Ivan Toney’s weekend display against Rochdale as the Posh continued their march up the table.
Toney bagged his third hat-trick for the club as the Posh thrashed their visitors 6-0 to climb into the play-off places with seven matches played.
Two of the goals came in the first half, closing down Dale ‘keeper Robert Sanchez to squeeze home the opener before collecting an inch-perfect Marcus Maddison pass to notch his second and Posh’s third.

An excellent lashed finish across Sanchez and into the bottom corner secured him the match-ball just before the hour mark with Mo Eisa and Maddison scoring the rest to make it four wins on the bounce.
The 23-year-old has been is excellent form throughout his time with the club, becoming a huge fan favourite along the way.
So it is no surprise that the reaction to his performance was so huge…
Superb today you and Maddison are a joy to watch. By far the best pair in the division! In fact the whole squad look together. Long may this continue. Love the celebrations after each goal UTP

Maddison and Toney are in unstoppable form. Double both their wages, extend their contracts and prepare for big money bids in Jan/ summer #pufc

Was worried about Rochdale if they were able to get the ball down and play but Ivan Toney does what he does best 🔥 #pufc
