Have the lights gone out on Peterborough United’s survival chances? You’d think so judging by these fans’ comments: ‘The electrician was man of the match, two poor teams with no idea, all bark and no bite again, the first nail in the relegation coffin’

There was a bumper reaction from Peterborough United fans to yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Barnsley at the Weston Homes Stadium (November 27) - and virtually all of it negative.

Dan Butler championship player? Hell no MOM the electrician who got the lights going again.

@welcometojack

I think the match result about sums up the players’ scores, 2 points lost not 1 won.

@matthewjlsmith

Needed quality, brought on Szmodics. Why?

@pufcfanno

Awful performance, lacking quality, relegation bound.

@Poshlawts

Wing backs still not working. I could add a sixth word, but you wouldn’t be able to print it.

MOM: Whoever is responsible for the floodlights. Highlight of the match when they went out.

@pufcfanno1

Excitement peaked when lights went out. MOM: emergency electrician.

@MWL1988

Cold, poor, lights out - home time. MOM the crowd.

@TonyCupoli

Couldn’t hit a barn door.

@ChrisElliott80

Cannot score for toffee, fact.

Two of the relegation destined teams. MOM - No standouts.

@DOC_RAY

Things against us, prove fans wrong MoM Edwards.

@buckets95

Very boring and very very cold. MOM the fans for staying and watching it.

@Alexnelson2004

Fairly committed, but zero quality. MOM Edwards.

@darrengilbert8

If we can’t beat Barnsley, well……MoM Dembele. Although not everything he did came off, he put in a good shift.

@ChrisMosley44

Uninspiring and abject against a poor side.

@ryan_kelly23

Tricky conditions, floodlight failure, no goals. MOM the stadium electrician for getting the match restarted!

@emmacatherine93

50p in the meter, trust the process.

@PaulGC84

Very, Very, Very, Very, Very bad.

MOM: Edwards. Would have given it to Cornell if he could kick properly.

We’re all going on a league One tour! MOM: Edwards.

@jacobcr27518800

2 poor teams with no idea.

@DavePufc

No creativity, little quality, awful watch. MOM Cornell.

Low power - story of the season.

Players look worse than last year. Coaching? MOM Edwards.

@TobyWoody

Dominated, lacked cutting edge, needed win. MOM Edwards.

@James_Mayley

Selection gamble didn’t work, help needed. MOM - Edwards.

@David88Michael

Edwards MOM.. Not brave enough going forward.

@Davis88Michael

Toothless, uninspiring, dull, L1 is looming. MOM the Floodlights, should have kept them off.

@Kyle_Irving1

First nail in the relegation coffin. MOM Dembele.
