Johnson Clarke-Harris scored a penalty late to help Peterborough produce one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Jacob Brown opened the scoring in the 28th minute before Clarke-Harris equalized in the 33rd minute. Lewis Baker thought he won the game with his 84th-minute penalty only for Clarke-Harris to equalize in the first minute of stoppage time.

Managers Reaction 

Peterborough’s Grant McCann: “It was two evenly-matched teams in terms of the formations. I was disappointed with the first goal. It was sloppy from us and we didn’t clear. It was a good finish from Jacob Brown, but it was a good response from us. I thought we were better in the second half and more positive and on the front foot. Then we get the sucker punch of the penalty decision which looked harsh from where I stood. I’m not sure what Josh (Knight) can do with his hand. But we showed real resilience to get back into the game.”

Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: “It was the clearest of the three (penalty shouts). Unfortunately, the ref is not strong enough to give it. The other two were penalties. We’re over 20 points we’ve lost from winning positions this season. It’s something in our make-up at the minute we have to get rid of. Maybe it’s a combination of young players in the team but we have experience. Maybe we’re too reliant on those experienced players. For the young players, it’s part of their development.”
