Posh take the lead against playoff rivals Shrewsbury Town, but are unable to secure the vital points. Peter Gain scores with a 20-foot drive, but Ben Davies levels the match after half-time. Mark Arber lets Derek Asamoah advance at goal, who scores the winner from 20 yards. The Shrews leapfrog Posh and have 4 games in hand. Darren Ferguson fumes, “I cannot believe we lost that match, but we lost concentration twice and paid the penalty. They only had two shots all game.”
