Peterborough United delivered one of their worst performances of an inconsistent League One season at Rochdale today (November 25).
Anthony Grant worked hard in midfield as usual, but no-one else had a positive impact on a poor quality contest won 2-0 by the home side.
Conor O’Malley: A traumatic first half with the second goal appearing to pass through his hands, albeit from a well struck free kick. Made a good save from Henderson late on 5
Leo Da Silva Lopes: A mixed bag from the teenager who at least put a decent shift in. Some good crosses, some poor passes, set up best second half chance for Miller 5.5
Andrew Hughes: Plugged away gamely, but struggled against a marauding wing back in the first half. Passed poorly throughout 5
Steven Taylor: Mopped up well for the most part, but never dominated a cumbersome front two 5.5
Jack Baldwin: He plays with his heart on his sleeve, but it’s often not very convincing 5
Anthony Grant: Others need to follow his example. Sure he makes mistakes, but his attitude is always spot on. The best of a bad bunch by some distance 7
Michael Doughty: Doesn’t make tackles, doesn’t pass the ball accurately enough. Removed at the break 4
Jermaine Anderson: He’s way off League One pace right now, hardly in the game, second to most balls. Off at half-time 4
Marcus Maddison: Rochdale man marked him and fouled him out of the game. His set pieces were awful 4.5
Jack Marriott: Very poor, don’t remember a shot at goal, offered no link up play 4
Danny Lloyd: Ineffective, only seen shooting wide from 25 yards. Substituted at half time 4
Ricky Miller: (for Lloyd, 46 mins) Worked hard and had a go which was more than some managed 6
Idris Kanu: (for Anderson, 46 mins) Stuck out on the left wing and never threatened anything special 5
Chris Forrester: (for Doughty, 46 mins) Quiet, bordering on anonymous 4.5
Jonathan Bond: (not used).
Callum Chettle: (not used).
Alex Penny: (not used).
Ryan Tafazolli: (not used).
