The game finished 1-1 with Posh improving after a couple of substitutions early in the second-half.
Ratings key: 10-Brilliant, 9-Outstanding, 8-Very Good, 7-Good, 6-Okay, 5-Poor, 4-Dreadful.
CHRISTY PYM: Hindered by a hip problem which might have accounted for a less than agile attempt to keep out the Sunderland equaliser. The visitors' keeper was far the busier 6.
NATHAN THOMPSON: A superb assist for the Posh goal and did such a good defensive job on Sunderland star McGeady he was forced to go hunting inside for the ball. A key man in the run in 8.5.
DAN BUTLER: He defended well against Jones in the first-half, but his passing was sloppy throughout his 55 minutes on the pitch. Rightly cautioned for a wild foul which played a part in his early substitution 5.5
FRANKIE KENT: Strong defensive effort from the centre-back. Won many headers inside his own area when Sunderland were on top in the first quarter. Stayed strong when the pressure increased towards the end of the game 8.
