The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

SCRAPPY game, but over­all we de­served the win, de­spite not play­ing well.

First half was just aw­ful. Game pretty much changed af­ter­tay­lor came on. The piece of skill he did in the box was just pure ge­nius - Coven­try couldn’t han­dle him.

Sin­clair fin­ished well and Kearns had a good de­but. Not man-of-the-match ma­te­rial but he still did re­ally well. Thought we missed Mc­cann, al­though­tun­ni­cliffe had a good game.

Zakuani once again was bril­liant. Although I didn’t have the best view of the goal -line clear­ance it looked pretty im­pres­sive from the Lon­don Road End - Posh Josh. AN okay per­for­mance sec­ond half but on that form we’ll con­cede goals at For­est un­less Jug­glin’ Joe has a stormer.

Tay­lor did what he does from the bench - a storm­ing cameo and gave us a great out­let. You re­ally have to win the ball to get it off him. He never just gives it away. Pos­si­bly harsh to leave him out but he had his only dread­ful half of foot­ball at Le­ices­ter.

Didn’t think we de­fended very well as they all seemed to panic when they re­alised we could ac­tu­ally win it 1-0. We dropped five yards and strug­gled to keep the ball in mid­field.

But the win was ob­vi­ously the most im­por­tant thing. My man-of-the-match was prob­a­bly Al­cock, who is be­com­ing a tremen­dously con­sis­tent player any­where across the back four - Wood­ston Bob. THE win was the most im­por­tant thing and we got it, so I am happy.

Tay­lor/kearns joint manof-the-match win­ners. Tay­lor to­tally changed the game.

We did ride our luck to­day though and against a slightly bet­ter side would prob­a­bly not have won.

Shame for­tom­lin, it now makes the squad look a tad thin - Paddy Posh. GOOD win to­day. They were the worst team I’ve seen this sea­son, they had lit­tle or no idea at­tack­ing-wise up un­til the last 15 min­utes when our young mid­field tired.

But as Fergie said post­match they will be able to cope with 90 min­utes given time.

Also I can’t see why ev­ery­one was rav­ing about Kearns. He did well but not man-ofthe-match - I thought Zak was im­mense and­tay­lor looked like the best player on the pitch.

And how is Clive Platt still play­ing foot­ball for a liv­ing? - Grintler Posh.
