Joe Day was Posh's best, and definitely busiest, player in the first half saving well from both Lewis McGugan and Fernando Forestieri as Watford's slick passing often mesmerised the hosts.

But after the break, in a game that became more scrappy with every substitution, Peterborough created chances of their own with Danny Swanson twice bungled during a three-on-two opportunity.

Posh led for 45 seconds in the second-half thanks to a cool finish by Swanson following a superb pass from Lee Tomlin.

However, the Hornets equalised in the 61st minute following some brilliance of their own as McGugan thundered a 25-yard free-kick against the crossbar before Troy Deeney converted the rebound from close range.

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.
