The current Peterborough United squad have become just the second in the club’s history to lose their opening four Football League matches.
The only other Posh team to suffer such a poor start included club legends Chris Turner, Jack Carmichael, Jim Hall and Tommy Robson.
They lost to Stockport (2-3), Southport (0-1), Chester (2-8) and Northampton (1-2) at the start of the 1972-73 Fourth Division campaign before breaking the run with a 3-0 home win over Bradford City in game number five.
That team went on to finish 19th before winning the title the following season under the magical management of Noel Cantwell.
The current Posh team won’t be winning the Championship title any time soon, but the statistics do suggest that it’s too early to give up now.
The longest Posh have ever gone without a win at the start of a season is seven matches by the 1988-89 squad in Division Four and Darren Ferguson’s 2009-10 team in the Championship. The latter team went on to be relegated after a season of turmoil that included four different managers.
The most games in a row won by Posh at the start of a season is four by the 1961-62 Third Division team.
