Posh captain Mark Beevers reveals how squad are adapting to current situation.
With no training due to the current global epidemic and no games scheduled in the foreseeable future, discipline is required to keep yourself in shape and Peterborough United skipper Mark Beevers and his team-mates are diligently doing their work in their homes after schedules were set by the Sports Science department.
It has been just under a month since Darren Ferguson’s men were last in action, a 2-0 victory over Portsmouth at the Weston Homes Stadium. Beevers knows that it will be a while before he and the rest of the squad will be given the green light to get back to the Mick George Training Academy.
"We are having to adapt. I have a treadmill which I can use which is ideal and there are other things you can do to keep yourself in the best possible shape. It is important for the lads to stay on top of their fitness, because when football does resume we won't have as much of a pre-season as we might have normally, so we will have to wait and see.
“The Sports Science department have devised a schedule for us to stick to and we are doing that as best we can. For me, I have a young family so I am spending a lot of time with them in the garden and obviously helping with the schooling side of things. I am quite happy with Mr Headmaster that I have been christened!
“We stay in touch via the technology that we have and there has been quite a number of players getting involved in trends on social media. That is not normally my kind of thing, but I did find Ivan Toney’s Isolation XI quite funny on Twitter and Instagram. It can be tough mentally but you have to stay positive and look forward,” Beevers said.
