ALAN SWANN’S Peterborough United player ratings from the 2-0 win at Accrington Stanley
Peterborough United’s fine form continued at the Crown Ground tonight (January 28) as they won 2-0 at Accrington Stanley to make it three League One wins in a row.
It was a solid all-round display from Posh as Sammie Szmodics and Joe Ward scored the goals.
Christy Pym: Made a sharp first minute save, but was never tested again. He looks a composed, confident goalkeeper now 7
Nathan Thompson: Reliable and combative until going off 15 minutes from time 7
Mark Beevers: A commanding display at the heart of the Posh defence. Won his headers made some good interceptions 7
Frankie Kent: After a nervy start the young centre-back delivered a classy display which included some most impressive runs forward 8
Joe Ward: His defending is getting better by the game and he found time to get forward and celebrate his 100th Posh appearance with a goal 7
Dan Butler: Took an early booking for fouling dangerman Jordan Clark, but went on to play very solidly. Suits the wingback role. 7
Jack Taylor: Looked good in possession early on, but got bogged down in a busy midfield area. He can play and he can mix it 7
Reece Brown: He’s very accurate with his passing, but there’s more to come offensively for sure 7
Sammie Szmodics: Busy and exciting. He doesn’t stop running, struck his shot for the goal well, but it was deflected home. Substituted to keep him fresh for the weekend 7
Ivan Toney: Didn’t get in the game in the first-half, but he was effective in the second-half. Very unselfishly gave Ward a goal on a plate 7
Siriki Dembele: Superb run for the first goal and he looks a real threat alongside Toney. A hard-working display 7
Josh Knight: (for Szmodics, 67 mins)
Niall Mason: (for Thompson, 73 mins)
Ricky-Jade Jones: (for Dembele, 82 mins)
George Boyd: (not used)
Rhys Bennett: (not used).
