Very entertaining game which could really have gone either way. Can't help but feel that they were there for the taking and they'll likely feel the same. Slow start but could have put the game to bed, poor defending for their goal after a wrong call by the ref on the throw-in and we seemed to lose our focus for a moment and it cost us, unforgivable at this level.

Played some very nice stuff at times and then resorted to the long ball to Ranger late on. Certainly a huge improvement on the last 2 but have to be more clinical in front of goal.

Peterborough were a decent side just constantly making sloppy basic mistakes. Anthony Grant bossed the midfield throughout for them.

Oxley 8 A couple of brilliant saves in the second half
Demetriou 7 Generally good but tired towards the end and had nothing left
White 6 Okay but not a lot more, pulled all over the place by their pace
Leonard 7 All over the place, his speed is great defensively but at times he couldn't place a pass
Timlin 7 Thought he was much better second half but should have done better for the goal and got a bit sloppy late on
Yearwood 8 Started on the right and looked lost, moved into the centre and had real intent going forward with some great footwork, though tried to do too much at times
Wright 6.5 Very efficient first half and protected the defence well, struggled when Grant moved forward and lost his way, not a great finisher
Wordsworth 6 Aside from a few neat flicks, he didn't track back and just swung a foot at a shot whenever it came near him
McLaughlin 5 Woefully out of form, got in some good positions but poor execution
Fortune 6.5 Worked hard and very physical, tired early on
Cox 6.5 Anonymous for the first hour, put himself a bit more after that

Subs
Robinson 6.5 Being positive here, he got in some great positions and won some headers which you expected him to lose. If only he realised that he can put his foot through a ball and doesn't have to wait for 30 seconds before doing anything in the box.
Ranger 6.5 Won some headers, looked frustrated every time he didn't get the ball

On paper a decent point which we might have taken given the injuries/suspensions and our recent form. Need to start turning these kind of tight games into wins, especially if our away form doesn't pick up soon.
