Peterborough United’s unbeaten away record finally came to an end on Saturday afternoon, as in form Wycombe Wanderers defeated The Posh 1-0 at Adams Park.
Midfielder Bryn Morris’ 67th-minute strike was enough for Gareth Ainsworth’s side to become the first team to take three points from Peterborough United on home turf this season. The victory is The Chairboys’ third in four games, and helps them climb to 15th place.
The loss sees Posh drop out of the top two for the first time this season, as Sunderland climb into the automatic promotion spots as Jack Ross’ side gain the momentum everyone expected them to upon their relegation from the Championship last season.
Evans rued Matty Godden’s missed opportunity to put The Posh 1-0 up, and went on to discuss the striker’s poor performance at Adams Park today.
“If Matt scores we win,” Evans told the Peterborough Telegraph.
“When you are battling to stay in a promotion race and in the middle of a tough away game you have to take chances like that.
“It was a great chance superbly created by Ivan Toney, but Matt was poor in everything he did today. We have been hard to contain when we score the first goal and that would have been the case today I’m sure.
“Rhys Bennett should also score at the end of the first half. He just needed to put his laces through the ball.
“But we were poor overall. We finished the last game badly at Burton and that form carried on today. We felt we were playing against a team we should have been able to deal with, but we were well off it.
“Our wingers have been excellent this season, but they weren’t today. One of them worked hard at least.
“It’s very disappointing. We didn’t play with our normal spark. There wasn’t much in the game and we have lost to a lucky goal. We tried to chase the game by changing a few things, but we didn’t do enough.
“We will hurt for a bit and then get back on the training ground. I hate losing in this manner.”
Next week, Posh head to non-league side Bromley in the First Round of the FA Cup, and Evans insists that changes will be made for his side’s visit.
“It won’t be the same next week,” Evans insisted.
