Vital Posh MOTM v AFC Wimbledon Poll

Vital Posh MOTM v AFC Wimbledon 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 League One match against AFC Wimbledon which is now up and running.

After three successive draws, it was vital Posh got back to winning ways but it was not to be as the players put in another lethargic display giving the fans the impression they had already dismissed their chances of getting to the play-offs!

Andrew Hughes failed a fitness test so instead of going with a back three, Posh boss Grant McCann made the shock decision to start young Lewis Freestone. Freestone struggled throughout the match as he was dominated by striker Lyle Taylor who gave the visitors the lead with one of just two shots they had on target all match!

Another strange decision by McCann was to start Anthony Grant who had been off the pace for the last few matches. Thankfully he saw sense when the midfielder was replaced at half-time for loanee striker Omar Bogle.

Posh were lacking an attacking threat down the wing and it cried out for someone like Joe Ward to come on but Junior Morias was the last entrant into the match for Posh but he and the fans didn`t really know where he was supposed to be playing!

Could the play-offs be slipping away with a fourth draw on the bounce? Is McCann up to the task?

The draw saw Posh stay in 10th place but they are now six points away from the play-offs with Plymouth Argyle now occupying that final place! Wimbledon also stayed where they were (18th) but they are now two points away from the relegation places.

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