What do I know?!

A very good performance by Rovers, especially in the second half, where the visitors seemed to offer less when some of the Posh big guns were called into action. Some imaginative deployment of players as mentioned, extending to youngster Kyle Hayde going into midfield, when coming on as a sub. There were a lot of good performances and some of the fringe players doing their cause no harm with tonight's showing. It will be quite a tough team selection for Keith at the weekend.

I remember the Rochdale supporters commenting that Hill likes to use players out of position.

MacDonald at right back did not work (!) but Keith's other surprise deployments have been extremely effective (Kahn at right back, Lewis up front, O'Connor in midfield).

5 home wins in a row 7 games unbeaten and only 4 points off the top of the LG, oh Lloyd has 5 in 11 games he is bang in form, Lewis has now got 4 so the goals are being spread around and that's what Hill keeps saying he wants is goals all over the park with Woolery also on 5 now its all good more the merrier

That was probably the best Lewis has played for us I reckon. He always works hard but got his goal tonight and linked up really well

I’m made up with tonight’s win but a tad bittersweet as if we win the semi, fans won’t get to Prenton Park South....
If we win the semi, I’d expect the EFL to delay the game until crowds are allowed back, unless there is another lockdown. But let’s see what happens in the semi.

When I saw the side we were putting out, I thought we’d get a typical Peterborough thrashing. The fact that we won with a patchwork team does great credit to Keith and his squad. Morale must be sky high at Prenton Park. That performance even ranks ahead of the Maidstone game in 2017, as this one had something at stake. I’m a very proud fan tonight.

seems to me the squad are buying into the management team no one sulking just giving KH a major headache & what a position to be in glad I don't have to pick the team, chuffed to bits at the moment.

I want us to be the fittest team in LG 2, I like that he is talking sense good on him, and it's showing in the results.

I don't hold much hope for CBT for the rest of the season based on that rather sketchy answer.

It’s Lincoln, Sunderland or Oxford in the semis. All tough League One sides, but so was Peterborough.
