Posh secure Ferguson praise

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson was full of praise for his side after they earned a 1-1 draw away to West Bromwich Albion in the third round of the FA Cup. A Craig Mackail-Smith goal three minutes from time set up a London Road replay, with Ferguson feeling that his side were well worth a second crack at the Baggies. He said: "The lads did us proud and we caused them problems. "In these sorts of games you've got to concentrate all the time because it only takes one mistake against opposition in the Premier League for them to punish you. "They had a good spell of 20 minutes in the second half. I thought we had weathered it and they scored from a set-piece, which was disappointing on our part. "But then we kicked on again and Craig missed a good chance with a header before scoring, so I'm delighted. The players did us proud. "I never felt the game was beyond us and in the end we got our rewards."
