Vital Posh MOTM v Oxford United Poll

Vital Posh MOTM v Oxford United Poll

<div style='background-color: #005abb;'><a href='' title='news'>headlines</a></div>

Rate the Peterborough United players in the Vital Posh Man of the Match Poll for the Sky Bet EFL League One match against Oxford United which is now up and running.

Many people were expecting a reaction after the defeat at Oldham in mid-week and for the first half, it looked like that would be the case.

Posh dominated the majority of the first half and should have scored more than the one goal.

Sadly, a change in tactics by the visitors combined with a very lethargic, poor performance by Posh completed change the course of the game. Four unanswered goals were scored by Oxford with very little opposition coming from Posh.

Were Posh just over confident coming out in that second half that they felt they didn`t need to put the effort in? What certainly didn`t help were the changes Grant McCann made during the second half which not only confused the fans but the Posh players as they didn`t seem to know where they should be playing or how to play in the position they were meant to be in!!

A second defeat on the bounce saw Posh drop one place again to fourth but the rest of the pack are closing in behind them and with their next game being called off due to international call-ups in the Charlton camp, it means Posh could drop out of the top six altogether come 5pm next Saturday!

The Yellows moved up two places to 13th place and are four points from the play-off places.

What did you think to the performances of the Posh players and Grant McCann?
