Hmmmmmm they were decent. Nowhere near as good as Oxford and we invited them on to equalise in the second half. I think we gave them too much respect

Our plan to keep them quiet worked well early on. They figured us out by the end of the first half though and looked threatening from that point onwards. A point is probably a fair reflection but a shame it wasn’t all three.

They are an excellent side. Steve wasn’t wrong in his pre match assessment. Although there defence had holes apart from Edwards I don’t rate them. Everything was through Mason-Clark.

Biggest disappointment was the two goals we actually conceded were dreadful.

Very happy with a point

Yes, we do play in a completely different way to Posh, Oxford and no doubt several others who value possession and playing their way up the pitch.

Which really annoys the purists.

But they aren't better, they are just different, as proven by our league position.

Made absolute sense at the time to keep five at the back.

Edit: Although we sat too far back far too early, and it was interesting we then immediately went to a back four after they scored.

Yeah Peterborough looked very dangerous. I think 2-2 is a fair result. We had some luck in the first half, with their shot that hit the post. And the deflection off Butler that could have gone anywhere.

They are very comfortable with the ball at their feet and I felt like all of their players were very fast. Get the ball and get as many people in the box as possible, and it worked for them most of the time.

We're still above them, but I can see them doing well this year.

Their fans in the car park were less optimistic. Thought it was nailed on they'd lose their key players in January to the Championship.

Same could be said about us, a lot sniffing about Jamie Reid in particular.

I thought we were lucky to get a draw on the balance of play and would certainly but can't help feel a bit frustrated having been 2-0 up.

Thought we got the subs wrong today, I would have kept Wildin at rb.

Yes.

Both spread play very well and attacked with pace, cutting us open, but I felt Oxford would score every time they attacked. I didn't feel that with Peterborough in the first half today (at the time of making the comment).

At HT we were saying Pressley should come on, but at the time of the sub I agreed with it being List.

It was 2-1 at the time and they were playing an increasingly high line at the back, and aren't that rapid at the back, so it made sense that List would come on to hopefully exploit that with his pace, as at Fleetwood.

However, he is incredibly frustrating as he just does not put in the effort to chase and defend from the front, or get stuck in, like every other player does.

Yep. I think his line of credit is up. He’s just not up to the standard we are at now. Against a defence that’s played the entire game until his introduction you’d hope/expect he’d do more than meander around.

I’d go as far as saying I’d be disappointed if we don’t offload him in January to free up room in the squad and budget.

Aye, I think I am done with him now too.

He can still score goals, as his three this season show, and it is difficult when he often only gets a few minutes off the bench, but he doesn't show enough for the overall team for me, and doesn't do enough even when starting games.

I would have Reid, Hemmings and Pressley all ahead of him in my pecking order.
