Vital Posh MOTM Results -Vs- Hull City

Vital Posh MOTM Results -Vs- Hull City

It wasn`t the best of performances by Posh as they came up against a well organised Tigers outfit but they managed to snatch a draw against the promotion chasing side.

In truth, Posh didn`t look like penetrating the Hull backline until the final 30 minutes when Grant McCann came on for young Manchester United loanee Davide Petrucci. McCann`s introduction was the catalyst for a fightback.

That fightback resulted in a penalty for Posh after Tommy Rowe was upended in the box after a mazy run had already beaten two players. McCann beat Gayle to the ball to take the penalty which he coolly slotted into the back of the net.

Hull were pretty toothless themselves as they created very little during the match and had only taken the lead thanks to an unfortunate own goal. That came from a poorly delivered corner which went towards the first player in the box. Unfortunately for Joe Newell as he took a casual swipe with his right foot but only saw the ball find its way into the net instead of out of the area!

The results of this Man of the Match are very odd as it looks like people are voting for their favourite player rather than who was the best Posh performer!

The top three players as voted by you in the Man of the Match for the Championship match against Hull City were:

3rd Place: 6% Grant McCann & George Boyd

2nd Place: 18% Mark Little
