A slick finish from Lee Tomlin fired Posh ahead against their fellow Championship strugglers, and it took a second-half penalty from DJ Campbell to secure Town a point.

Ferguson said afterwards: "I feel there's a great trust between myself and the players. We've got character in abundance and there's no question of us failing on that front.

"We just have to stick together and see it through. If we do that, and play like we did today, we've got more than enough time to turn it round and get out of it.

"I'm disappointed we didn't get three points and thought it was a missed opportunity.

"We just couldn't get a second goal and that was our biggest frustration. There were still a lot of positives to take from it, though.

"We look a lot more solid with three at the back, took early control of the game and I didn't think we were in any danger until the penalty.

"Then towards the end we had two or three good chances to win it. I knew we'd get chances on the counter-attack.

"They've conceded 14 goals in the last 15 minutes and I thought this might be another opportunity to get another late one."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
