Boss frustrated by spot-kick woe

Peterborough manager Gary Johnson was frustrated after his side were one kick away from a much-needed victory in the 2-2 draw at home to Leyton Orient. Johnson saw two-goal Aaron Mclean's stoppage-time penalty saved by Orient goalkeeper Jason Brown as Posh were forced to settle for a point. Alex Revell cancelled out Mclean's opener, another penalty after Brown was adjudged to have felled George Boyd, and Jimmy Smith`s late equaliser salvaged a draw. But Johnson said: "We got a penalty in the last minute of the game and I felt the boys deserved to get a result, but it wasn't to be. We were one kick away from winning the game and that is the sort of thing that is happening to us at the moment. "People are getting annoyed about the number of goals we are conceding and Orient have come here and struck twice. We are still letting in too many goals and we are trying to address that. "There are some good signs going forward but we needed a two-goal lead to alleviate the pressure. When you get the publicity that we sometimes get at this club, everyone starts panicking when the opposition gets over the halfway line. "Every team has chances against every other team in football. That is this division and that is us at the moment. We either get through it or we don't."
