Peterborough United are confident that they can claim a third straight Championship away win at Watford on Saturday (October 20).
Posh won back-to-back matches on the road at Hull and Barnsley before losing at home to Nottingham Forest in their last Championship fixture.
And, although Posh remain rooted to the bottom of the table five points adrift of the relegation zone, they are a confident outfit as they prepare for the trip to Vicarage Road.
Posh manager Darren Ferguson expects to stick with the 3-5-2 formation that came up trumps at the KC Stadium and at Oakwell.
Ferguson said: “The system has worked well in our last two away outings and all credit to the players for adapting so quickly to it.
“I felt I had to stick with it for the home match against Forest, but we were also prepared to change it should we fall behind. We didn’t deserve to lose, but six points from the last three matches gives us something to build on.
“We are within five points of eight teams so things can change quickly as long as we maintain our form. I have confidence in me and my team that we can get out of the bottom three.”
Posh have won three away matches in succession at Championship level before. In the 1992-93 season Posh won at Barnsley, Grimsby and Leicester in consecutive away games.
