McGee stars in busy month for loanees
15 November 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
On-loan Luke McGee has shone in goal for Peterborough United during recent weeks, picking up a second consecutive Player of the Month award at the ABAX Stadium along the way.
The 21-year-old kept a clean sheet on Sunday (November 13) as the Posh toppled League One high-fliers Bolton Wanderers 1-0 at home, making it four wins in a row in all competitions for Grant McCann’s side.
Consecutive 2-1 victories against Barnet in the Checkatrade Trophy, Chesham United in the FA Cup and Bristol Rovers in the league preceded that – Luke remaining ever-present throughout, with Nathan Oduwa a 60th-minute substitute against Barnet.
