Post by tonyp » 14 Jan 2018, 11:04

Posh at home so far this season -

Drawn 1
Lost 5
Goals for 20
Goals against 18
Difference +2
Points 22

Oldham away
Played 14
Won 2
Drawn 5
Lost 7
Goals for 17
Goals against 28
Difference -11
Points 11

Of course it will be tough (they all are) but we should win this one.

If we have any aspirations of a play off spot....

We need to be winning games like this.

Certainly do, but our record so far this season against supposed 'lesser teams' hasn't been too good unfortunately. No games are easy in this league, as Wigan found out yesterday! :wink:

2 points from the previous 9 won't get us anywere either...

Whether it's Wigan or Oldham...We now need to start putting a run together.

Looks like we're all considering this a "must win" game!

It is not a must win but it is a 'wouldn't it be very useful and a step in the right direction' win. It only becomes a must win situation when there are no other outcomes to the season.

Who said it is a must win?

I said "we should win this one."
superposh80 said "We need to be winning games like this."
To which you replied "Certainly do"
Stuie agreed.
I concluded "Looks like we're all considering this a "must win" game"
I came to that conclusion because I believe we all think it's a game we don't want to lose or even draw if we want to have any hope of getting into the play-offs.

Picked this stat up off Twitter....

Rotherham average 2.3 points per game against teams below them in the league.

Charlton....2.1 points per game

Posh....1.3 points per game.

There's your difference....and the reason why we need to start beating these sides on a regular basis.

As a reason, I would think that our plan of hitting teams on the counter attack, breaks down when teams don't attack us. We do better against the better teams because they don't fear us and end up leaving us in a position to counter. Sadly that doesn't come off for us on the odd occasions where we concede against a top team early on giving them something to defend.
For the most part our defence including Grant have been superb, the other five apart from the breakaways and set pieces don't seem to be good enough to break down defensively minded teams.
This may seem an odd critique when looking at the stats of Marriot and Madison, but they are only two of the five.

It didn't stop Leicester winning the league.

They had the additional option up front though (Ulloa) which is what we need against the likes of Oldham.

Fingers crossed that's exactly what's arriving this week.
9-2 Posh, 5-2 Draw, 4-7 Leicester

That’s our problem. Naive and polite against under-performing clubs and savvy and confident against the better teams. We have the quality but obviously not the mentality.
