Peterborough United’s home winless run extended to eight games, as high flying Accrington Stanley defeated The Posh 1-0 on Saturday afternoon thanks to Sean McConville’s early strike.
Home form is now a serious concern for The Posh, who haven’t won in front of their own fans since August 15th, when they defeated Luton Town 3-1.
Sean McConville slotted in from close range after sloppy defending all round from Peterborough United early on. Stanley stood firm throughout and resisted Posh pressure, but Steve Evans’ side failed to convert their chances and ultimately fell to another home defeat.
Manager Steve Evans wasn’t happy with referee Scott Duncan’s performance, and believed Stanley were very lucky not to have goal scorer Sean McConville sent off for a “horrendous” tackle on Marcus Maddison. Playmaker Siriki Dembele was given some rough treatment throughout – as he has done in the early stages of the season.
However, Posh fans didn’t make any excuses for the performance, and didn’t hold back on criticism as The Posh put on another sloppy display.
Embarrassing, no structure, or plan…boring! Funniest moment was Man of Match!! Daniel!! Ha ha

Got to sort out home form out and quickly. More points dropped against a top 6 team. Poor performance all over the pitch today. Ref was diabolical as well. Need to pick up for Tuesday. #pufc

Wheels are coming off. Evans is not the man. Been convinced of that since the day he was appointed.

If we don’t win again at all at Home this season but still get promoted who will be moaning then? Instead of moaning 24/7 to @DMAC102 let’s support our city who are currently sat 2nd in the league. Oh and are also the League One Top Goalscorers! #pufc
