Surprise number one. We set up 4-5-1. Surprise number two. Peterborough had the better of the first half. Surprise number three, with Cole as the lone striker we haven't looked like scoring. Surprise number four, the score is 0-0 at half time.
This is a game we HAVE TO WIN. This is a game against a team in the BOTTOM SEVEN of the CHAMPIONSHIP! This is a match we should be winning comfortably if we are serious about returning to the Premiership. This is a game we should be set up to WIN, not to contain.
But Peterborough have hit the bar and Peterborough have had a penalty claim turned down and Peterborough have missed an open goal and Peterborough have had a shot cleared off the line and Peterborough finished the half pressing and Peterborough have had more shots on goal and Peterborough have had more shots on target and Peterborough have shaded the possession.
Another pathetic 45 minutes of clueless Allardyce football!
