and live on Freeview channel 276
Striker Jack Marriott, who failed to score for Wednesday on a season-long loan from Derby County in a 2019/20 season that ended in relegation from the Championship, was left out of the Peterborough United squad for their Boxing Day draw at Charlton Athletic.
And speaking after the match, Posh boss Grant McCann opened up on a decision to move Marriott on in January having only played a bit-part in their season so far and starting only two league games since the middle of September.
“I had a conversation with Jack as we’re approaching the January window,” McCann said. “It was an honest conversation and we have total respect for each other – I signed him many years ago.
“Jack is in a position now where he needs to play football. There’s quite a bit of interest in him and we can’t guarantee he’s going to start every week.
“I’m a fair person and I’ll always be open and honest with people and if that’s the case then there are no issues. We’ll see where it goes.
“Jack is 28 now. He’s a very good striker and is not one that wants to sit on the bench and it was an easy conversation and he was really pleased we had a really open and honest conversation and I’m sure Jack will find a good club and go and play some football.”
