Peterborough United boss Grant McCann’s reaction to the first back-to-back League One defeats of the season was to recall his own promotion-winning experience from the division.

Some Posh fans were understandably concerned with last Saturday’s (September 30) second-half capitulation against Oxford, particularly as it followed a dismal defeat at the hands of Oldham.

Posh striker Jack Marriott is outscoring the man he replaced, Tom Nichols.

But Posh are still fourth and that represents a decent start to the campaign.

McCann said: “What I know from winning promotion from this division three times as a player is that nothing is won in September and October. We will have more of an idea of our chances after 20 games, not 11.”

Football fans tend to lack patience and that was the case with some who responded to the Peterborough Telegraph’s call this week for six-word summaries of the season so far.

But others remain patient and have great confidence in McCann and his squad.

TalkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham, the club’s most famous fan, said: “Overachieving with the squad we have.”

Better than expected. Still quite fragile.

Overachieving with the squad we have.

Promising, but old habits haunting us.

@AlexBatt

Tactical ineptness follows good start.

@ChestneyS

Mobility scooter required for static defence.

Progress is clear despite slight stumble.
