Micky Mellon On Point At Peterborough United

12 December 2015

Manager Felt Performance Deserved The Draw

"We'll see how it is in the next 24 hours, Skitty will let us know about that," he said.

Micky also provided an update on midfielder Ian Black ho was forced off on a stretcher in first-half injury time.

"You always hope when the players come back to their former clubs that these things happen," said Micky.

"They don't happen all of the time, that's for sure.

"It happened for us on the day and we fully deserved it."

Barnett grabbed the equaliser by tapping in after Peterborough goalkeeper Ben Alnwick failed to hold onto Sullay Kaikai's vicious shot. "It's a terrific point and a point I don't believe anybody in the stadium would say we didn't deserve it," said Micky.

"I think Peterborough went ahead against the run of play in the second half, we were having our best spell.

"Fair play to the boy, he's got in and finished it very well."

And Micky was pleased to see his side's performance rewarded with a point against the fifth-placed side.

The Posh took a second-half lead in the Sky Bet League 1 clash at the ABAX Stadium through Conor Washington, but substitute Tyrone Barnett grabbed Town an equaliser against his former club with ten minutes to go.

Manager Micky Mellon was delighted to see Shrewsbury Town earn a fully-deserved point at in-form Peterborough United on Saturday.
