Rate the Peterborough United players in the Vital Posh Man of the Match Poll for the Carabao Cup first round defeat by Barnet which is now up and running.

What a woeful performance by Posh!

Both sides made three changes to their starting line-up but it was the visitors who looked more interested in the newly named League Cup.

Posh were atrocious in the first half as they adopted their preferred 3-5-2 formation and could quite easily have been more than the two goals to one down at half-time.

Andrew Hughes came on at half-time while the formation was changed to a more traditional 4-4-2 and it seemed to work wonders to start with. Posh looked more lively but they couldn`t convert their better possession into goals.

The death bell for Posh rang, against the run of play, when the visitors were awarded a freekick which was struck against the wall but the referee deemed it to be handball!!

The resulting spot kick was converted by Shaq Coulthirst, who left Posh just a matter of weeks ago!

What did you think to the performances of the Posh players and Grant McCann?
