It’s safe to say Darragh MacAnthony has had better weekends.
The Peterborough chairman saw his side lose 2-0 to Colchester in League One on Saturday, a result which left them five points off a play-off spot. A fourth defeat in five games was too much to take for the 38-year-old Dubliner and he took to Twitter to vent his fury.
He began: “Like all Posh fans & our Manager, there are many things I’m well & truly p...d off & have the hump with after today, care to know them all?”
MacAnthony proceeded to list 11 things that had annoyed him about the day’s events, singling out a number of Peterborough players.
Elsewhere in League One, it was a happier day for Derrick Williams. The defender got his name on the scoresheet as Bristol City went top after a 4-0 win over Notts County.
The weekend’s big Championship game featured eight Irish players and one former Ireland manager with Derby beating Mick McCarthy Ipswich 1-0 to leapfrog their opponents into second.
It was a frustrating weekend for James McClean as his fine goal counted for nought in Wigan’s 3-1 defeat by Birmingham.
Elsewhere, Sean Morrison scored the winner as Cardiff City won 1-0 at home to Fulham while Keiren Westwood kept a clean sheet in Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest.
It was a successful but painful weekend for Darren O’Dea, who was forced off injured in Blackpool’s 1-0 win over Millwall. O’Dea posted a picture on Twitter of his heavilybruised ankle.
In League Two, Mark Byrne’s goal sealed a 1-0 win over Portsmouth and lifted Newport to third while John-Joe O’Toole scored in Northampton’s 2-0 away win at Exeter.
