The winger fired his first league goal of the season in some style with a stunning 20-yard curler after being picked out by a pass from Michael Doughty after 20 minutes.

And that proved to be enough to send out-of-form Posh reeling to a fourth successive League One loss.

Stevenage saw it out despite having midfielder Jimmy Smith sent off in the 64th minute for collecting a second yellow card from referee Mike Jones after cynically body-checking Hogan Ephraim. The visitors also had five other players booked.

Ephraim, on loan from QPR, failed to convert Posh's two best chances. He was denied by a fine Chris Day save late in the first half and saw another good opportunity blocked by defender Luke Jones early in the second period.

Posh skipper Tommy Rowe saw a dipping 25-yard volley hit the top of the crossbar, but the hosts were unable to prevent their slump from continuing as they went down with a whimper.

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
