However, their lead was short-lived, as an equalizer from Nathan Thompson, 34 minutes in, brought The Robins level. The momentum was now with Bristol, who then scored again through a goal from George Tanner at the 40 minute mark to establish a 2-1. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Sammie Szmodics equalised for Peterborough United just before half-time, finalising the first half 2-2.
