They were delighted with the contribution of skipper Mark Beevers in the 1-1 draw, but less happy with Christy Pym’s part in the Sunderland equaliser.

Posh should have won, but importantly did not lose. Good result for Hull and possibly Pompey and Blackpool. This division’s promotion race will still have twists and turns. MOM Beevers.

Gave them too much respect at the start and should have finished them off after going in front. We should have had Dembele running at them from the start.

Tough game, fair result, two more tight battles v Black Cats in Championship next season. MOM Thompson.

@TobyWoody

Slow start, grew into game. MOM Thompson just for that touch of class for goal. Pathetic foul to give away when you know McGeady is class from free kicks. Commentators delivered the worst performances: ‘great strike’ as it goes over and wide, ‘clever foul’ goal from the free kick.

@eddie_seddon

Game of 2 halves, ref below average, Dembs upped the tempo. Fair result.

@TonyCupoli

Draw felt inevitable. Sunderland’s first half, Posh’s second half. Good defensive performance. MOM Beevers who was outstanding.

@philbeck1981

Draw was fair. Not bad result. MOM Beevers.

@Rutlandspinner

2 points dropped in my opinion. MOM Beevers.

@AlexNelson2004

Sunderland better in possession, but Posh created clearer chances. MOM Beevers.

@poshpanther

Needed to take those chances at 1-0, but overall am happy with a point. Beevers MOM.

@romysdad

Only started to play once we pressed. A cagey first half, but a good second. Silly mistake and a brilliant free kick cost us 2 points. MOM Beevers.

@ChestneyS

Thought the 2 sides cancelled each other out, nice to still be involved in the promotion race after an excellent 4 points over Easter. MOM Thompson.

@Deepingposh

Fair result and as not at our best take that. MOM Beevers.

@lowestoftposh

Fair result. Pym is weak on free kicks. Beevers superb.

@paul_gauntlett

Fergie got tactics spot on with the starting line up and freshening it up when he did to create an impact. MOM Thompson for me. In a great position with an okay run in so there can be no excuses if we miss out!

@Sweeney95Alex

Fair result but why do I feel deflated with the draw? MOM Beeevers.

@theperkins

Good point against a solid team. MOM has to be Beevers.

@campufc

Would’ve been an unbelievable win, but point not to be sniffed at though! Beevers MOM

@kelanlarson

O’Nien MOM. Great point, result indecisive.

@pcookie1381

Created better chances after we went 1 up. MOM Thompson especially for the pass to Dembele for the goal.

@BrianSwann1

Should’ve won, but a draw is a fair result. MOM Beevers.

@Wjonesriley1

No-one seemed to notice, but it was Mason’s fault for the free kick. Good performance otherwise with another awful refereeing display. I’m glad it didn’t effect the result. MOM Beevers.

@welcometojack

Would have taken 4 points from the weekend. Long way to go still and today doesn’t define season. MOM Beevers.

@chrisabbott33

Fair result, happy to not lose, still in the autos. Thompson MOM, but Beevers was superb in that first half.

@poshcricketer

Draw the right result. Beevers the best player on the pitch.

@Dines_11

Sunderland not all that. We should have won after going 1 up. MOM Beevers.

@Davepufc

Pym costs us again. MOM Beevers.

@PaulDay84

Pym is too small. MOM Beevers.

@Crall1993

Pym can’t save free kicks.

@ohglmg_rmg

Another keeper mistake has cost us. MOM Beevers.
