Peterbororough United players performed with plenty of spirit in the League One promotion battle at Doncaster today (February 9),
But going down to 10 men in the first-half for the second Saturday in a row cost them dear. Posh led at the break, but conceded three goals in 10 second half minutes to lose 3-1.
Tyler Denton was the man sent off.
Conor O’Malley: Might have done better with the corner for the first Donny goal, but he made some fine saves otherwise 7
Jason Naismith: Stuck to his task well enough, although lucky not to concede a penalty at the start of the second half. 6
Tyler Denton: His first caution was unusual as it was for time-wasting after 3 minutes, but his second was a poor decision by the full-back. He had started to struggle with Wilks anyway 4
Ben White: Looked solid and composed before the break, but lost his way after the break. Unlucky to see ball fly off him from a corner for the opening Donny goal 6
Rhys Bennett: Defended his penalty area really well for an hour until an error led to Doncaster’s second goal and he was substituted soon afterwards. Did well attacking a couple of set pieces in the first half 6
Alex Woodyard: A tigerish, combative midfield display from the skipper. Halted many Doncaster attacks throughout the game 7
Callum Cooke: Some neat and tidy touches in the first half when playing on the left of the diamond. Disappeared after the break and substituted 6
Joe Ward: Played with a lot of energy and one brilliant run and cross gave Toney the chance to make it 2-0. Fouled out of the game 20 minutes from time 7
Marcus Maddison: Looked bright and lively when getting on the ball. Some good set pieces as well 7
George Cooper: A quality goal, but starved of possession after that 6
Ivan Toney: Worked as hard as ever, unfairly treated by this referee for the second time this season, missed a couple of good chances to make it 2-0 6
Ryan Tafazolli: (for Bennett, 71 mins)
Louis Reed: (for Cooke, 71 mins).
Kyle Dempsey: (for Ward, 73 mins).
Aaron Chapman: (not used).
