Blackpool 1-1 Peterborough United

Blackpool's wait for a first home win since October goes on as they were held to a draw by Peterborough at Bloomfield Road.

Michael Doughty came close to putting Posh ahead after four minutes but his looping volley from 20 yards deflected just wide.

And Peterborough were in front after 21 minutes through League One's top scorer Jack Marriott, who was left unmarked in the middle and nodded in Marcus Maddison's cross for his 19th league goal of the season.

Despite dominating the half, Posh failed to add to their tally and Blackpool levelled in stoppage time.

Viv Solomon-Otabor's cross was turned in from a yard out by Nathan Delfouneso. Peterborough were unhappy, claiming he used a hand to do so.

Maddison looked a threat for Peterborough throughout the match and came close after 50 minutes, curling past the far post from 18 yards.

But it was the Seasiders who had the best chance to grab a winner as Solomon-Otabor's cross picked out Armand Gnanduillet, but he headed just wide from six yards.
