Darren Ferguson’s side were completely outplayed in South Wales, in what was a game that they would not have expected too much from anyway.
However, the manager will have been disappointed with the performance of his team, particularly in the first half in which the Posh were in fact 3-0 down come half time.
Attempting just two shots themselves all game, Peterborough failed to muster together any response in the second half and were perhaps fortunate that the scoreline was not extended further by their hosts, to leave the final score at 3-0.
A response will be expected by Ferguson on Tuesday evening, particularly in front of their own supporters, where they will look to build on their decent record achieved in this campaign so far.
