There wasn’t a negative comment addressed to the Peterborough Telegraph on a cracking night in front of a near full house at the Weston Homes Stadium despite City’s 2-0 win.

Rose to the occasion tonight. MOM Kent/Fuchs.

Had a feeling we were going to give City a game and we certainly did. Watching City live was a breathtaking experience. You don’t realise how much quicker and skillful they are live compared to on TV. An outstanding 90 minutes entertainment.

@buckrodgersposh

They finally played like we know they can. MOM: Ward.

Great effort from everyone. Always good to have a full house for an evening match. MOM Josh Knight.

Great shift, did the club proud. Has to be Fuchs for MOM. He kept City at bay in the first half and didn’t stop until the final whistle.

@TobyEllisNoakes

Would have loved to have kept them out for another 10 mins as then it would have got really interesting. MOM Knight who was absolutely immense.

@lukewcliff

Exceptional, couldn’t have asked for more!

@Askan37

Brilliant from start to finish. No MOM of the match on Saturday, but tonight all of them. But Fuchs the pick of the bunch.

@CHAMM24

Very good all round team performance. MOM Ricky-Jade Jones. That was the best I’ve seen him play.

@RayEllis17

Performance fantastic. City fans doing the ‘Poznan’ at London Road was hilarious.

@braden_henson

Good performance, a bit of luck who knows? MOM Grant.

@poshskin1105

Ran all night for the cause. MOM: Couldn’t choose between them.

@MaxCasper10001

Loved it, not going to give MOM as I thought they all played so well. It was great to see.

@Webmelanie

Spirited performance against a quality Manchester City team. Did well to concede only two goals and could’ve scored a couple of our own. MOM to Benda, but the whole team deserve credit. They battled hard!

@emmacatherine93

Great occasion and an even better performance. MOM Fuchs.

@kieranUTP

Absolutely no shame in that performance. Held their shape and competed brilliantly. Everyone did well, but Josh Knight my MoM.

@csking75

Superb effort - Kent or Fuchs my MOM.

@gposhfan

Decent effort and Kent MOM.

@CrispLevi

Proud to be Posh! - Fuchs MOM.

@pboromikky

Great occasion, players did themselves proud. MOM Kent.

@Alexnelson2004

Fuchs MOM. Credible mentions to RJJ, Knight & Kent.

@JohnVerrall

Stood tall across the field. Hard to single out anyone but Joe Ward rejuvenated.

@eamonnduff

McCann has found his team. Now they must find a goal. Much improved all over the pitch. As enjoyable as a defeat can be. MOM: Kent.

@janemor50334582

Frankie Kent was MOM for me.

@ebettles

MOM Fuchs. Annoyed as it shows if we put the effort in we could get results.
