An early goal settled the contest and although Posh huffed and puffed they couldn’t find an equaliser despite creating a couple of great chances.
Too many individuals had off nights which is reflected in the player ratings.
RATINGS KEY: 10-Brilliant, 9-Outstanding, 8-Very Good, 7-Good, 6-Okay, 5-Poor, 4-Dreadful.
MARK BEEVERS: Badly bullied by Akinde in the first half and passed the ball poorly throughout. Substituted towards the end to try and improve the quality of passing 5.
REECE BROWN: A half-hearted attempt to block the match-winning shot was quickly followed by a superb ball that should have led to an equaliser for Dembele. He always looked for the ball, but he didn't always use it wisely or quickly enough 5.5.
JACK TAYLOR: You need your big players to stand up in moments of strife, but the classy midfielder barely influenced the contest. He was too deep in the first-half and although he got on the end of a couple of crosses after the break he couldn't find the target 5.
JOE WARD: He did deliver a couple of decent crosses once he moved to wingback, but he was also often slow, hesitant or wayward. One very promising situation in the second-half was ruined by a dreadfully overhit centre 5.5
