Peterborough   2 - 2   Swansea

Peterborough  2-2  Swansea

Peterborough 2-2 Swansea

Aaron Mclean's injury-time strike saved Peterborough after Swansea substitute Lee Trundle netted two late goals.

The visitors dominated the first half but went behind when Chris Whelpdale profited from defensive confusion after Exodus Geohaghon's long throw.

Trundle was introduced on 70 minutes and made an impact with with a low shot past Joe Lewis before shrugging off his marker for an injury-time second.

But in the fourth minute of injury time Mclean scrambled in from close range.

Captain George Boyd provided the assistance, skipping away down the left and driving in a low cross which was missed by two defenders to allow Mclean to steer home at the far post.

Despite the late relief, Peterborough remain rooted to the bottom of the Championship with new manager Mark Cooper still seeking his first win.


Peterborough manager Mark Cooper:
"We had been behind at half-time in our two previous games and were anxious to make sure that didn't happen again.

"A team with Swansea's footballing ability can cut you to pieces and we couldn't afford to let that happen.

"In the second half we were the better team. We got ourselves 1-0 up, should have gone 2-0 and could have been 3-0.

"You always think the game has gone when you fall behind that late, but the lads never know when they are beaten, kept going and earned a point."

Swansea manager Paulo Sousa:
"There was only one team with the mentality to win the game, we produced all the football and did everything we could to get the three points.

Interview: Paulo Sousa

"I do not feel we deserved to be behind anyway. Anything can happen at a throw-in like the one for their first goal and in my opinion there was a foul on Gorka Pintado from behind.

"It is not a fair goal but my team showed a good reaction to come back and score two goals to get ourselves ahead.

"But we have to show more maturity after making such a big effort. It is very disappointing to leave with only one point."
