Posh also won their last League One game at Bristol Rovers so confidence is high ahead of a home match with second-placed Bolton on Sunday (November 13, 12.15pm kick off). Posh follow that game with a trip to local rivals Northampton, who are sixth in League One, on November 19 and a clash with current leaders Scunthorpe at the ABAX Stadium on November 22.

“It’s a great time to hit some decent form,” McCann said. “We have some great games coming up against three teams in the top six, but we now have momentum and confidence on our side.

“We have players coming back from injury and players coming into form.

“I made a lot of changes for the Barnet game and some of the players who came into the side delivered their best performances for the club.
