Peterborough The Worst Visitors To CCS

Peterborough The Worst Visitors To CCS

Whilst a 2-0 win is welcome over any opposition in this crazy division, it is fair to say that if we couldn't beat that rabble - we'd be in a sorry state indeed.

Peterborough are rock bottom, and after biuzarrely sacking Darren Ferguson, they appointed the unknown Mark Cooper. He has also been dismissed and Jim Gannon has a mountain to climb if he is to salvage anything from this season - on that performance - he ought to start preparing for life in League One.

No offeense to the Posh fans, but Peterborough were comfortably the weakest team to play at the Cardiff City Stadium this season, and I include the lower league teams Bristol Rovers and Dagenham & redbridge in that. The likes of Derby County (6-1) and Scunthorpe United offered far more than the Posh - despite the heavier scorelines.

Laborious at the back, and weak in midfield - it was the attack that was most lacking for P'boro. In McLean, Boyd and Mackail-Smith they have good attacking options - I thought prior to the game anyhow! However, none looked remotely interested in running with the ball, or carving our attacking opportunities.

Boyd was simply terrible, with a heavy touch and general lack of interest. He wasted numerous opoortunities to attack, and on one such occasion tried a ridiculous effort from 30 yards on an acute angle when he had support arriving - the frustration of all was evident, though the Peterborough players had given up long before.

A welcome win, but Cardiff City need to improve drastically to maintain any play-off hopes. For Peterborough, relegation is the reality - unless a miracle is in the offing - how did we ever ship 4 second half goals to them?!?
