Surprise, but maybe he'll come straight into the side, the two fullbacks have not been brilliant and I was under the impression that Bennett was meant to be a full back anyway. Even Ward made the other two look less than world beaters.

Evans rooted out that defender, he doesn't let the grass grow under his feet!

Must do wonders for Josh Yorwerth’s confidence this!! Ridiculous signing from Mr Cheque Book Computer Game Manager.

As Bristle said we desperately need some quality full backs as Naismith & Daniel are bang average, so what does this joker do............sign a Centre Half no-one else wants, priceless!!!!

Explain in full what you know about the Yorwerth situation and then pontificate with some knowledge. :roll:

Very harsh HantsPosh. Nobody really knows in full what the situation with Josh Yorwerth is at the moment. As far as we are aware he has had some injury problems and some issues to sort out, whether they are personal or with the management/club is anybody's and nobody's guess. Personally I would like to see Yorwerth return fully fit, as he was superb in preseason and was extremely impressive when he came on against Gillingham, after Taff was injured.
Nevertheless, in the meantime, we do need to make sure that we have cover in the central defensive area and the signing of Bassong is, hopefully, a wise move by Evans. Initially the move is only until the end of January, when the Yorwerth situation should hopefully be resolved or at least we will be able to see if we need a full time replacement for him. If Bassong proves a fantastic signing and Yorwerth also returns fighting fit, then Evans will have a problem to sort out! Better this than to lose a central defender in the coming weeks and have no cover at all.
Rhys Bennett, Darren Lyon and Tyler Denton can all play as full backs and Lewis Freestone could possibly be recalled from Nuneaton. Joe Ward has also shown that he can play very effectively at right back, as he showed at the weekend. We need a proper central defender and Bassong fits the bill. Better than shoe-horning other players from other positions as we have done previously, with little success.

You must be just a little bit curious what might happen should you ever actually criticise Evans or the club, go on admit it you are aren't you?

You really don't know me whatsoever do you :lol:

Unlike you I do not have a default position re Mr Evans.

Regarding the club, bloody hell I spend half my life discussing things with them and that involves plenty of disagreements.

I will let you be the one to criticise with no knowledge. It suits you tbh so trot on

Plays behind closed doors in quite a strong reserve side
TheOffalSite wrote: Posh and Oxford play out a 1-1 draw in a friendly fixture at the ABAX Stadium.

The latest recruit for Peterborough United, Sebastien Bassong, completed 90 minutes in a behind closed doors friendly with Oxford United at the ABAX Stadium with Darren Lyon the Posh goal-scorer in a hard fought 1-1 draw.

Young centre back Sam Cartwright, currently on-loan with St Ives Town, saw a powerful header from a Marcus Maddison corner kick tipped over the bar inside the opening quarter of an hour following a bright start to proceedings at the ABAX Stadium.

George Cooper sent a 25-yard curling effort wide of the target moments later as Posh tried to find a breakthrough. Mark O’Hara planted a header wide from another excellent Maddison set-piece on 19 minutes.

Walker fired wide from just outside of the box after a patient Posh build-up as the game reached the half hour mark. The deadlock was broken moments later and it was against the run of play as the visitors finished off an excellent move with a low finish into the bottom corner.

Posh appealed in vain for a spot kick as Cooper appeared to be felled inside the area, but nothing was given by the match official. Posh made a change three minutes after the break with Isaac Buckley-Ricketts replacing Maddison.

The change had an immediate effect as Buckley-Ricketts got a touch into the path of marauding right-back Darren LYON who produced a calm composed left-foot finish into the bottom corner of the net.

Buckley-Ricketts produced an excellent cross for Cummings moments later but his header was tipped over the bar by the keeper. That one on one battle continued on the hour mark as Cummings evaded the offside trap, again the keeper made a fine stop diving to his right.

The Us shot-stopper was at it again minutes later as he kept out another powerful effort from Cummings with O’Hara seeing the resulting chance blocked. Substitute Andrea Borg fired wide of the near post after linking well with Cooper after being introduced for Jamie Walker.

O’Malley did well to tip a long-range effort over the crossbar after Buckley-Ricketts had tested the Oxford keeper with a curler after a strong run from deep.

Posh: O’Malley, Lyon, Bassong, Cartwright, Daniel, O’Hara, Cooke, Maddison (sub Buckley-Ricketts 48min), Cooper, Cummings, Walker (sub Borg 65min)
