STRIKE PAIR ARE A REAL THREAT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

THE man­agers called it right. Old­ham take great credit for the way they played and Posh weren’t at the races.

The Lat­ics were ex­cel­lent in mid­field and moved the ball around ef­fort­lessly at times – but they fell vic­tim to a striker in supreme form. Britt As­som­ba­longa’s bril­liant in­di­vid­ual strike was no fluke, Posh’s record sign­ing has the con­fi­dence to take a game by the scruff of the neck.

Fact was nei­ther side put de­fences to the ul­ti­mate test enough – but both can do bet­ter.

If Old­ham can add a cut­ting edge, Lee John­son should have plenty to look for­ward to this sea­son. As for Posh, the fact they have nine points with­out hit­ting their full straps tells an omi­nous story for Fergie’s pro­mo­tion ri­vals. Their two best dis­plays have been on the road but As­som­ba­longa’s part­ner­ship with Ty­rone Bar­nett will give League One de­fences night­mares.
