Peterborough 1-1 Plymouth
Aaron Mclean's volleyed effort earned Peterborough an FA Cup third-round replay against Plymouth after home boss Keith Alexander had been sent off.

Hasney Aljofree put the visitors ahead on 74 minutes with a re-taken penalty after Guy Branston fouled Reuben Reid.

Alexander was sent to the stands for protesting against the goal, but Mclean fired home from Mark Arber's lay-off to ease the manager's frustrations.

It was just reward for the hosts who matched Argyle in a well-fought match.

  • Peterborough manager Keith Alexander:
    "The referee had a diabolical game - you never get a fair crack against bigger sides.

    "It was a really shocking decision to order a retake of the penalty.

    "He would not talk to me for 30 minutes and by that time the officials have had a chance to get their story straight."

  • Plymouth boss Ian Holloway on Aljofree celebrating in front of the Posh fans and being hit by two bottles:
    "To celebrate like that was a disgrace and I would have thrown a bottle at him myself.

    "The keeper made a great save and there was no need to disrespect their fans.

    "A bit of common-sense was needed and only the captain Lilian Nalis showed any by getting the players back."
