GARY Megson last night blasted his Wednesday team’s performance as unacceptable after they crashed 4-1 at home to Peterborough.

The Owls boss revealed that there was an “almighty bust-up” in the dressing room at half time - but it was one-sided with him delivering “a few home truths” to the players.

Megson slammed the defending that contributed to Posh taking a 3-0 lead in the first half. He said: “There was an almighty bust-up at half time, because it’s just not acceptable. The goals that go in against us have to be seen to be believed. We were every bit as good or bad as Peterborough until they scored. Then a header that has to be won and has to go forward, we drop it two yards in the middle of the field, and then go 1-0 down. We do it again to go 2-0 down. We don’t defend properly, we don’t shift the ball in our box, and go 3-0 down. Then we’ve got people out there who are not working hard enough, they’re not honest enough.

“I don’t like being critical but it’s just not acceptable in this profession, it’s certainly not acceptable at this club.”

There was also the blow of losing Mark Beevers to injury early in the game, with suspected damage to his cheekbone.

Megson added: “It’s an absolute nightmare because he’s been getting better and better with each game. It doesn’t look good, the injury’s he’s got. It’s not mitigating, but it didn’t help. His cheekbone doesn’t look good.”

Megson added: “People have got to show a lot more desire and drive. We don’t win enough critical balls. We were so inept it’s untrue.”

“People have to deliver. ”
