Ryan was flyin, but oth­ers failed to im­press

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Posh boss Grant McCann learnt noth­ing new from watch­ing his un­der 23 side crash to a Cen­tral League de­feat this week.

Dave Far­rell’s men went down 3-0 to AFC Wim­ble­don at the Mick Ge­orge Train­ing Academy on Tues­day af­ter­noon.

Three sec­ond-half goals did for a team that in­cluded eight play­ers with com­pet­i­tive first- team ex­pe­ri­ence with Posh.

McCann was pleased with the con­tri­bu­tions of cen­tral de­fender Ryan Tafa­zolli and teenage striker Deon Moore, but found lit­tle en­cour­age­ment from other per­for­mances even though right-back Hay­den White came through 90 min­utes after miss­ing re­cent first-team matches be­cause of in­jury.

“It was a poor game,” McCann ad­mit­ted. “And it just con­firmed to me what I al­ready knew about some play­ers.

“We got more min­utes into Ryan Tafa­zolli which was im­por­tant and he looks like he’s com­ing back to his best form and fit­ness.

“De on Moore gave us a good 45 min­utes as well.”

Moore was taken off at half­time which might bean in­di­ca­tor he could start against Wal­sall at the ABAX Sta­dium this Satur­day, but McCan­nin­sisted he wanted to give am­ple game time to an un­named tri­al­list for­ward.

The likes of mid­fielder Adil Na bi and striker Shaqui le Coul thirst ap­pear to have lit­tle fu­ture un­der McCann at Posh.

Posh: Henry, Free­stone ( sub Ni­chol­son 46 mins), Almeida San­tos, Tafa­zolli, White, Nabi, Coulthirst, Chet­tle, Oduwa, Moore (sub Stevens 46 mins), Tri­al­ist.
