Isaac Buckley-Ricketts set up the opening goal for Stevens after 15 minutes before George Cooper made it 2-0 five minutes later following a Luke Strachan pass.

Rovers pulled a goal back on 27 minutes, but under 16 player Connor Peters headed home a corner for 3-1 10 minutes before the break.

Stevens latched onto a Cooper through ball for 4-1 just before the interval, but Rovers scored three unanswered goals in the second-half to claim a draw.

It could have worse for Posh as young goalkeeper Josh Allen saved a penalty.
