Birmingham scored two late goals to produce one of the comeback football results of the weekend in the Championship. Jack Mariott opened the scoring in the 16th minute before Jonson Clarke-Harris doubled their advantage in the 67th minute. Gary Gardener pulled one back for the hosts in the 85th minute before Scott Hogan equalized in the 88th minute to earn a share of the points.
Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “We just couldn’t get going after that [Marriott’s opener]. First balls, second balls, simple passes, and controlling it, we didn’t look too good. If there’s one positive I can take from it, they kept going till the end and ground out a point. You can’t start playing in the 80th or 85th minute and expect to win games. Just do the basics right. Once we started asking questions of their defenders, we looked dangerous. If there’s one thing you can do, it’s put a good ball in the box and ask questions of the defenders. That paid off anyway.”
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: Two-nil up with 10 minutes to go, the game’s done, well it should be done anyway. We just couldn’t keep our composure, but up until that point, I thought we were very good. It was just unfortunate that we couldn’t see it through. At 2-1, we lost a little bit of composure. I’ve got to see the positives from tonight, that was more like us. If we continue that on a consistent basis, we’ll stay up. I’m convinced of it.”
