Darren Ferguson: Felt that Peterborough let Leeds off the hook.

Dwight Gayle fired Peterborough ahead in the 15th minute but they remain in the Championship bottom three after Sam Byram levelled for Leeds in the 57th minute.

Gayle almost won his side a penalty in the 86th minute when he was fouled by Paul Green on the edge of the area and Ferguson was left to curse spurned chances.

"It's not a good point," he said. "It's really disappointing that we dropped two points.

"It was a great opportunity to get three points and out of the last three draws I would say tonight was the biggest opportunity.

"But unfortunately we only take a point. We had seven or eight chances to get the second goal and we've not taken them."

Ferguson will be meeting with referees' boss David Allison over a series of decisions during the season and was angered when Stephen Warnock escaped a red card for bringing down Kane Ferdinand on the edge of the box.

"I've just seen the referee and to be fair he said he'd watch it again," said Ferguson.

"You've got to be denying a goalscoring opportunity and if that's not a goalscoring opportunity I don't know what is.

"But to be fair to the ref he said he'd phone me and apologise.

"That might stop us going down and it might not stop us staying up, but at least he's done that.

"If it happened at the other end the referee would not have got out of here alive if he hadn't given a red card."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
