What has been the reaction to a first defeat as Peterborough United manager for Steve Evans when losing at Oxford United again on Saturday?

Oxford United 2 -Vs- 1 Peterborough United
Venue: Kassam Stadium
Date: Saturday, 17th March, 2018
Attendance: 6,804 (708 Posh fans)

Steve Evans suffered defeat for the first time as Peterborough United as he got it hopelessly wrong with his team selection and formation. Hopefully he`ll learn from this very quickly and see that it`s not always how good players perform in training but what they do, or in the case of some players, what they don`t do on the pitch that counts!

Those players who don`t put the effort in on the pitch may find themselves slipping down the pecking order very fast.

Posh fans know what the players are capable of but at the moment, Steve Evans doesn`t despite being a Posh fan himself for many years! It will certainly be interesting to see who is selected for the next match on Saturday when Posh entertain Bristol Rovers.

Last Saturday though, Posh were simply overrun in midfield, the defence struggled and goalkeeper Jonathan Bond cost us more points! Surely it`s time to give Conor O`Malley another chance in goal especially as Bond won`t be at the club next season but O`Malley will?

There was very little reaction from the Posh players after their first defeat in eight matches but the two players that did Tweet said:

But what about Yellows fans who saw their side do the double over Posh again?
