Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony livid with display against Norwich City

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony took to Twitter to convey his disappointment over his side's poor display against the Canaries.

A near capacity crowd, including 5,000 Norwich fans, saw the Canaries cruise into the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to goals from Elliott Bennett, Simeon Jackson and Robert Snodgrass.

And MacAnthony was fuming at the way his side capitulated after going behind and accused his team of failing to 'show up'.

'Mainly a second string Norwich side who were totally professional in their approach and work rate start to finish with quality,' said MacAnthony on the social media website. 'Never had cup run or earned decent money from cup since I've owned club and didn't turn up to win today. So ******* angry, really angry.'

MacAnthony praised the fans from both clubs and apologised for not giving the punters the cup tie that many expected.
