POSH REACTION: Great defensive effort ruined by a late blunder
The 10 men of Peterborough United came agonisingly close to claiming an excellent point at Barnsley tonight (April 19).
Posh survived at 0-0 with a man down for 50 minutes until an injury-time header somehow squirmed past Ben Alnwick.
Ben Alnwick: A second superb display in a row from the keeper. Many good saves, some excellent handling. One brilliant stop from a corner, but then a last-minute slip to concede the winner 8
Jack Baldwin: Excellent effort at right-back against the dangerous Hammill. Tackled well, blocked well 8
Andrew Fox: Sound job against a side with decent attackers. Not much chance to get forward 7
Ricado Santos: Much more sensible to play the big man at centre-back. Dominant and safe 7
Michael Bostwick: Some great clearing headers from the centre of defence in the first half. followed by a strong midfield effort after the break 8
Chris Forrester: Was playing steadily until irritating the referee and getting sent off just before the interval 5
Harry Beautyman: Worked hard in midfield, Not seen on the ball much 6
Jon Taylor: Pace was handy to relieve some of the pressure on the Posh back four 6
Erhun Oztumer: Hardly had a kick before withdrawn in a half-time reshuffle 5
Marcus Maddison: Never a factor before he was also taken off at the break 5
Shaquile Coulthirst: Worked very hard. The odd promising run. Pace is a real strength 6
Substitutes Lee Angol: (for Maddison, 46 mins). Good workrate in difficult circumstances 6
Gaby Zakuani: (for Oztumer, 46 mins) A quite brilliant 45 minutes of defensive resilience 8
Leo da Silva Lopes: (for Santos, 90 mins).
Mark Tyler: (not used).
Adil Nabi: (not used).
Aaron Williams: (not used).
