Peterborough United’s players let themselves down badly in today’s (April 8) League One defeat at bottom club Coventry City.
Posh defended reasonably well, but were pitiful going forward.
Luke McGee: It’s probably all very frustrating to watch from his position. Not called into direct action very often, but competent when required 6
Michael Smith: The stand-in skipper was often the best attacking outlet which is good from him, but not great for the team’s chances. Committed defensively. Decent performance compared to others 6.5
Jerome Binnom-Williams: Needs to learn how to weight his crosses. Defended okay, often against two, substituted as Posh chased the game 6
Jack Baldwin: Committed to the cause as always. Few problems defensively 6.5
Michael Bostwick: The usual mix of strong defending, powerful heading and shot-blocking 6.5
Anthony Grant: A solid job in front of the back four. Sacrificed for more attacking options after Posh fell behind 6.5
Leo Da Silva Lopes: Tried hard to make things happen, but there was precious little attacking intent from those in front of him 5.5
Martin Samuelsen: One terrific dribble led to the Posh penalty. Quiet apart from heading a second half chance wide of goal 5
Marcus Maddison: A disappointment after last weekend’s heroics. Couldn’t find his range when passing, shooting or crossing 5
Junior Morias: Unleashed a thunderbolt to hit a post 20 minutes from time, but he was otherwise missing in action 5
Craig Mackail-Smith: A woeful day for the club legend capped by seeing his penalty saved. Substituted in second half 4.5
Tom Nichols: (for Mackail-Smith, 65 mins).
Chris Forrester: (for Grant, 65 mins).
Paul Taylor: (for Binnom-Williams, 72 mins).
Brad Inman: (not used).
Ryan Tafazolli: (not used).
Mark Tyler: (not used).
Andrew Hughes: (not used).
