Manager Nathan Jones was left ruing what could have been after a frustrating night at the Weston Homes Stadium.
After Danny Hylton had put the Hatters in front early in the second half, the three points looked to be on their way back to Bedfordshire, but for Jonson Clarke-Harris’ late equaliser.
Giving his honest assessment after the match, Jones said: “We were one-nil up on 85 minutes and we just have to see the game out really and we didn’t do that. We had a warning just before, they’ve had a chance back-stick, then they’ve scored and to be fair they could have won it and we probably should have lost the game.
“We haven’t been anywhere near our best tonight but credit Peterborough. They are grafting, they needed a win and they went for it. They were really positive, really front-footed after a bad result at the weekend so they came out fight. To be fair you have to give them credit but we weren’t at the level, we showed one bit of quality tonight. The first time we won a first contact, the first time we got it down and showed any kind of quality, we scored.
“In the return game at Kenilworth Road we showed bags of quality, we scored three and should have scored more, but we didn’t show that kind of quality tonight. It’s tough coming away so any point is a good one especially as this point but I’m a bit frustrated, one we didn’t see the game out and two with the level of performance.”
