The Posh defensive unit played strongly, while Callum Chettle stood out among the forward players.

Luke McGee: One top save to deny Tyrone Barnett. He’s back to his rock-solid, reliable best 6.5

Michael Smith: Steady defensively, but his attacking crossing needs work 6

Lewis Freestone: The composure and attitude of the teenage left-back was a highlight of a desperately poor game 7

Andrew Hughes: Didn’t look out of place at centre back again. Good effort against a team who like to pump balls into the penalty area 7

Michael Bostwick: Commanding display against physical opponents. Plays with a lot of heart and commitment 7

Chris Forrester: Back to the base of the midfield diamond, but his passing was sloppy at times. The game continues to be a struggle for the captain 5

Leo Da Silva Lopes: Found the space in which to play on the left of the diamond. Wasn’t always accurate with his passing, but he defended well, helping out his teenage left-back. A couple of reasonable shots on goal 6.5

Callum Chettle: Played the occasional lovely pass. Competed well in midfield. He’s a smooth runner with the ball. A decent 80-minute shift 7

Marcus Maddison: Had his moments of promise, but his good crosses just landed out of reach of team-mates. Set-pieces were erratic 6

Craig Mackail-Smith: Worked as hard as ever, offside a lot and little change from a rugged home defence 5

Tom Nichols: Made some good runs which weren’t always spotted by team-mates. Struggled to get in the game as a result 5
