And Beevers
Explain how you can blame Beevers, it was a cross from the left that Knight should have cut out, the person at the far post should have picked up the player coming in not the centre man. Surprised you don’t blame Szmodics, he had almost as much chance of blocking the header from the other end of the pitch. If Pym had been taller he’d have saved that.

An excellent result for Posh, a shame Szmodics didn’t shoot from half way, 3-1 would have much improved our GD

I'm not sure Szmodics knew what the hell was going on but, it only matters that we got 3 points....no point analyzing the performance because we were very, very lucky and we needed some luck to go our way....need to win again on Saturday so we are not adrift in a 5 team league...my guess is that Hull and Cardiff will part ways with their managers and that could turn them both around...told you we would win ;-)

Just for you Bristle from Swanny's report on Hull's goal...."The positioning of Thompson for the cross and Mark Beevers and Butler for the header could be questioned."

Hopefully this will prove to be a turning point. It wasn't pretty and in the end we scraped out a win, but in the first 20 minutes we played some great football getting in on the left hand side and if JCH had been playing it would have been a much easier night. Special mention to Josh Magennis though, that could be a very key moment in our season.

Steamy, how would if have been a much easier night if (the unfit and overweight) JC-H was playing? Genuine question, not trolling. Szmodics covered more ground in 5 minutes than JC-H has done all season.

Hull were poor in front of goal but a win is a win and we only have to find 3 worst teams than us this season, which hopefully Hull & Barnsley will be so that jut leaves one more as I think Derby have enough to overcome the points deduction and survive.

Promising attacks down the left came to nothing as there was nobody to aim for and crosses into the box came to nothing. JCH maybe unfit but he is still big and strong and he would have got on the end of a couple of crosses in those early stages, where everything was good apart from the final product.

Sammie often does that, runs around looking menacing but his threat to opposition defences is fairly limited. JCH has proved to be a scorer of goals, albeit at a lower level, and we have definitely missed him, as he gives us another option. Playing the ball out from the back is our only option at the moment; Any hoofing the ball forward is totally counterproductive as the ball is immediately returned, often with extra topping too!
In addition, the return of Beevers has shown just how valuable he is to this team.

No criticism of Szmodics, but he is no centre forward.
