The Latics continued their unbeaten run with a well fought draw at Peterborough United - the current count is eight games without as loss. Rather than being excited, manager Lee Johnson was disappointed that his side did not come away with a win. Jonathan Forte scored an early goal before the home team made it 2-1 but Genseric Kusunga scored his first goal of the season in the 66th. minute to give the visitors a share of the spoils.

Johnson said after the game, "It was a good point today. I don't think we were at our best and we looked leggy in my opinion. It was important that we came here and retained the unbeaten run and I'm pleased with that. I was disappointed we didn't win because I wanted us to be more in touch with the playoffs but we have got to keep plugging away. Partnerships are still being built in the squad and it will only get better. I thought we had three or four good spells in the game. The first 10 minutes was good and then they had a patch of good pressure. It was a difficult game for both sides."

"We came out with a point but it could have gone either way but it is a good sign because even when we aren't at our best, we are picking up points. Sometimes last year we was at our best but losing so this is a good trait to have. Joe Mills was out the game today through a bug but Connor Brown came in and did really well. He played like he had not been out the team for so long but Mills should be back for Tuesday's game."

The 361 travelling Latics supporters sang their hearts out and Johnson commented, "The fans were fantastic again today. They never stopped singing and I'm sure they will go home reasonably pleased the teams performance."
