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."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
