Fleetwood Town 1-1 Peterborough United

Mark Roberts
Mark Roberts played almost 200 league games for Stevenage before joining Fleetwood in 2013

Fleetwood captain Mark Roberts's late header earned his side a draw against fellow play-off hopefuls Peterborough.

The former Stevenage defender placed a bullet header into the bottom corner from Conor McLaughlin's pinpoint cross.

Posh had taken the lead midway through the second half when Jon Newell capitalised on a period of pressure to curl in a sublime strike.

After Roberts's equaliser, Jamie Proctor almost won it for the hosts but fired his effort against the woodwork.

A point apiece means Peterborough drop to 10th in League One, two points off the play-off spots, while Fleetwood remain in 11th behind Posh on goal difference.
