Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has branded their season a "disaster" in a scathing attack on the club's staff.

Posh, who are bottom of the Championship and nine points from safety, face Preston and former manager Darren Ferguson on Tuesday.

MacAnthony told the club's website: "I have to apologise to all Posh fans for this season up until now.

"It's been nothing short of a disaster, I can understand their frustrations."

He added: "I am done with defending the players, the previous management, current management and everyone else at the football club top to bottom.

"Our club took chances on many of our players when nobody else did and rewarded them all with good long-term contracts that included the promotion bonuses and wage rises.

"They in turn repay the club with below-par performances."
