Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson hailed his 'heroic' players after their FA Cup second round extra-time victory over Tranmere Rovers. The Posh forced extra-time through Aaron McLean's stoppage-time strike, before setting up a third round tie against Premier League West Bromwich Albion courtesy of Craig Mackail-Smith 114th minute winner. "We have a great habit of not knowing when we are beaten," enthused Ferguson. "There were 14 heroes out there. We kept digging in and were rewarded with an equaliser and then the winning goal. "We wouldn't have deserved to lose the game after hitting the woodwork three times. "I am proud of the lads. They worked their socks off. We are on a great run at the moment and a trip to West Brom is a great game for the players."
