Posh owner wants return on his money

Writing in the Football League Paper Peterborough United manager Steve Evans states: 'The last four seasons have seen our chairman Darragh McAnthony invest big sums of his personal wealth and all he got was a points tally that fell short of what was the agreed objective. Why continue to do something you know will fail?'

'He agreed that it was time to build a new team and that's why we let 18 players go. Even so I must admit I had hoped to keep some of the players who have left for sizeable transfer fees.'

Striker Jack Marriott went to Derby County, but 'Marcus Maddison is now back with us after a very unsettling period when two - not one - Championship managers spoke to the player's agent about taking him and then didn't see it through.'

Posh have won their first three League One games, scoring nine and conceding three.

Steve Evans is ready to break up the starting eleven that has driven Peterborough to the top of League One. The Scot wants to keep his players fresh and is weighing up starts for striker Ivan Toney and midfielder Louis Reed for the Charlton trip.

Peterborough were one of my promotion tips for this season.

Odds: Charlton 13/10, Draw 12/5, Peterborough Utd 2/1.
