Wrong de­ci­sions cost Posh dearly

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Posh boss Grant McCann was so frus­trated by the end of this League One match at the Kas­sam Sta­dium on Sat- ur­day.

Af­ter putting five past Mill­wall in mid­week he had high hopes his un­changed team would record an­other big win as Ox­ford blooded twonew­full-back­san­daleft­back­play­ing as a cen­tre-half.

In­stead, it was his own de­fence which failed i ts test. Half­way through four min­utes of stop­page time, Ryan Tay­lor flicked the ball over the Posh de­fence and through to Chris Maguire whowas­bun­dle­doverin­side the area by Jack Bald­win.

The de­fender was shown a sec­ondyel­low card, andthe for­ward got up to place the spot-kick out of the reach of BenAl­nwick­div­ing­to­hisleft.

That made it two de­feats in su­ces­sive Satur­days for Posh­but­they­on­ly­hadthem­selves to blame.

Posh had more t han enough chances to claim all three points af­ter fall­ing be­hind­toaWesThomas­goalon 42 min­utes.

Tom Ni­chols equalised in the 62nd minute to set up a fran­tic fi­nale dur­ing which Posh were guilty of poor de­ci­sion-mak­ing.

They twice squan­dered good chances to take the points when sub­sti­tute Adil Nabi turned into a de­fender when he should have shot, while Gwion Ed­wards wildly fired a cross over with Nabi in space.
