Darren Ferguson: Says Peterborough have dropped too many home points

Ferguson watched his Championship strugglers fail to win for the 13th time in 18 games at London Road on Tuesday, although they were grateful for a point as Michael Bostwick's 71st-minute equaliser rescued a 2-2 draw.

A disappointing midweek result leaves the Posh two points adrift of safety and lacking in momentum at the start of a potentially crucial week.

Ferguson said: "In our situation any match we fail to win goes down as a missed opportunity - that's certainly the case tonight.

"We failed to take some fantastic chances to get a second goal after going in front and then we were all over the place after Charlton came back at us.

"We got ourselves together again to equalise and could have nicked a win at the end, but our home form hasn't been anywhere near the level we expect all season and that is clearly an issue we need to address.

"I viewed this week, with Charlton at home tonight and Ipswich coming here on Saturday, as a great chance to put six points on the board.

"The most we can get now is four and that makes Saturday the biggest game of our season. It is a must-win if we are serious about staying up."

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.
