Tranmere 1-1 Peterborough

Peterborough missed the chance to close the gap on League One's automatic promotion places after they were held to a draw at Prenton Park.

The visitors equalised before the break when Craig Mackail-Smith fired home after Aaron Creswell's clearance rebounded off United's Aaron McLean.
