Darren Ferguson: Praised Grant McCann for his performance

The Northern Ireland international scored a spot-kick in the 79th minute to earn Posh a 1-1 draw against promotion-chasing Hull.

Ferguson praised the super-sub, and said he was happy to take a point away from the London Road match after Joe Newell had put through his own net to put Hull in front.

"A point was the least we deserved and I wouldn't have been surprised if we had gone on to win after getting ourselves level," he said.

"It was harsh on us to fall behind to a mistake from young Joe, but he is a lad with an excellent temperament and didn't let it affect him.

"The most pleasing thing was seeing our substitutes come on and change the game. Grant in particular upped our tempo, got hold of the ball and tucked away the penalty.

"Home form is crucial when you are fighting to stay up and I know for a fact that the relegation battle is going to go right down to the wire.

"There is no doubt in my mind we have enough quality to stay up but it was doubly-important for us to play today as we don't have a game next weekend.

"I must thank all the people that helped to get it on."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
