A 3-1 defeat was more a culmination of individual mistakes than a collectively bad performance by Peterborough United.
Posh trailed 3-0 at half-time against Bradford City after an individual error by goalkeeper Jonathan Bond and some poor marking at set-pieces.
And despite a consolation goal by Jack Baldwin Posh never looked likely to salvage a point against a strong Bradford side.
Both sides ended the match with 10 men with Anthony Grant sent off for a second yellow card, but despite that once again the midfielder receives one of the highest marks in the Peterborough Telegraph’s ratings.
Jonathan Bond: After an excellent start to the season his dropped catch gifted Bradford the opener. Did little wrong afterwards 5
Steven Taylor: Made a couple of important blocks in the first-half. Redeemed himself in the second after giving the ball away in a dangerous position 6
Jack Baldwin: Struggled with Poleon and Wyke at times and gave a needless free-kick away which led to Kilgallon’s goal, but grabbed a consolation 5.5
Ryan Tafazolli: Hooked at half-time as Posh changed formation. Had an effort cleared off the line 5.5
Leo Da Silva Lopes: Looked off the pace for most of the match but ended strongly when he pushed forward 5.5
Anthony Grant: Apparently booked for asking the referee a question, then received a second yellow for deliberate handball late on. Before then he was one of Posh’s better players 7
Michael Doughty: Looked slow compared to Bradford’s lively midfield and was subbed at half-time 5
Gwion Edwards: Some good surges forward but not quite as effective compared to his recent performances 7
Marcus Maddison: Top deliveries in the first-half deserved to lead to a goal. Couldn’t find the same delivery in the second but he was always trying to create something 7
Jack Marriott: Tested Colin Doyle a couple of times in the Bradford goal but rarely had the chance to use his pace 6
Junior Morias: Unlucky to see a fine volley cleared off the line but apart from that did not threaten much 6
Jermaine Anderson: (for Doughty, 45 mins) 6
Andrew Hughes: (for Tafazolli, 45 mins) 6
Ricky Miller: (for Marriot, 61 mins) 6
