Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony took to Twitter last night to vent his anger at his team's performances in League One.

The Irishman launched a remarkable rant on the social network site following Posh's 2-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Tuesday, saying that he's become "fed up and bored" of watching the club "underachieve."

A fantastic free-kick from on-loan Derby County midfielder Ben Davies and a late strike from Chris Porter proved to be enough for an under-strength Blades side to record a comfortable victory at Bramall Lane, with Darren Ferguson's side rarely threatening Mark Howard in the home side's goal.

The loss was Peterborough's second in succession, after they went down 1-0 to Crawley Town over the weekend.

It means that despite a blistering start to the season, Posh are now 18 points off the automatic promotion spots with a place in the lottery of the play-offs now looking like the only realistic route to promotion.

MacAnthony also appeared to be upset at manager Darren Ferguson's team selection for the trip to Sheffield, after he seemingly criticised the Scot's decision to start record signing and top scorer Britt Assombalonga on the bench.

United will be hoping to get back on track when they host struggling Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, and Ferguson will be all too aware that it looks like he'll need to get results quickly in order to convince his chairman that he's still the right man for the job.
