Peterborough United skipper was very good, but a mixed day for Maddison

Marcus Maddison was at the centre of the key moments at Fleetwood, but he wasn’t Peterborough United’s top performer in the 1-1 League One draw at Fleetwood today (April 19).

Maddison saw his soft penalty saved in the first-half before claiming his fourth goal in four games after the break to give Posh the lead. Unfortunately Fleetwood equalised in the last minute to deal a severe blow to Posh’s promotion hopes.

Posh captain Alex Woodyard was the Peterborough Telegraph’s man-of-the-match, but centre-back Josh Knight also played well after receiving a late call-up to replace injury victim Ryan Tafazolli.

Aaron Chapman: Looked in good form again. Patrolled his area well, one fine late save, but could he have come and caught the long throw that led to the equaliser? 7

Jason Naismith: Strong performanace from the right-back which included an assist for the Posh goal 7

Daniel Lafferty: Troubled by the surging runs of Wes Burns, but by no means outplayed. Didn’t get forward a great deal 6.5

Josh Knight: A very composed performance from the last-minute call-up. Never looked in any bother defensively 7.5

Rhys Bennett: The centre-back was strong until a couple of wobbles late on. His decision to head the ball out for a throw-in at the death was a poor one, but he needed telling not to play at it 6.5

Alex Woodyard: Terrific effort from the skipper who covered no end of ground, winning tackles and forcing mistakes out of opponents 8

Louis Reed: Some good moments, some not so good. He is cool in possession though 6.5

Siriki Dembele: Was treated cynically by opponents and not looked after by a dreadful referee. His impact was minimal as a result 6

Lee Tomlin: He’s not the player we were expecting. Stayed on the fringes of the action and substituted again in the second half 5.5

Marcus Maddison: Showed good character to come back after seeing a poor penalty saved to claim a fourth goal in four games. Hit the bar as well, but his crossing wasn’t great 6.5

Ivan Toney: His woes in front of goal continued. Missed two second-half headed chances, one of which hit the post. Workd hard, but he struggled to contribute 5
