'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Last Time - Peterborough United v Middlesbrough

Peterborough were in disarray the last time these two teams met on 28th November, 2011 in a Championship league game.

Darren Ferguson had left the club following back-to-back promotions and rookie manager Mark Cooper had taken over after leaving his managerial role at Kettering.

Posh had yet to register a point since the arrival of Cooper!

Middlesbrough themselves were still looking for their first win under the reigns of Gordon Strachan. Did they notch that first win for him?

It started well for Strachan as loanee Dave Kitson struck a well struck shot from the edge of the area to give the visitors the lead close to the half hour mark.

For the hosts, defender Exodus Geohagen was making his debut after following manager Cooper from non-League Kettering and it was his enormous throw-ins that was causing Middlesbrough the most problems.

Half-time: Posh 0 - 1 Middlesbrough

The visitors threatened to take charge after the restart, with Adam Johnson narrowly missing from long range before a completely unmarked Leroy Lita headed wide from six yards.

It was Posh who struck though when George Boyd slotted the ball into the bottom corner after collecting Scott Griffiths's chipped pass over the Middlesbrough defence.

It was an excellent finish by Boyd, who in the process scored the first Peterborough goal since Cooper's appointment and his 11th of the season.

Kitson restored Middlesbroughs lead with a simple header after a left-wing cross from Johnson.

Middlesbrough should've gone on to see out the game convincingly but Posh had other ideas.

Cooper tried to change the momentum, bringing on Charlie Lee and winger Sean Batt and he was rewarded when the latter equalised with his sensational 25-yard effort that eluded Jones in the Middlsebrough goal for the equalising goal.

Neither team could break the deadlock and the game finished 2-2 in front of 10,772 fans.

Full-time: Posh 2 - 2 Middlesbrough
