That’s a tally bettered only Wigan (21) and Southend (18).

Posh have scored 65 League One goals and yet Conor Washington, who left the club in January, remains top scorer with 10. Second-placed Wigan and fourth-placed Gillingham are the only League One clubs who can match that number of goals scoredd

The rest of the Posh goals have been scored by: 8 Lee Angol, Marcus Maddison, 6 Souleymane Coulibaly, Erhun Oztumer, Jon Taylor, 4 Jermaine Anderson, Michael Bostwick, 3 Gaby Zakuani, 2 Chris Forrester, Aaron Williams, 1 Miles Addison, Harry Beautyman, Callum Elder, Tom Nichols, Martin Samuelsen, Ricardo Santos.

Back-to-back wins have moved Posh up to 14th in the League One table. They are 13 points from the play-off places and 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

If Posh do manage to pull off an unlikely eight wins from their final eight matches they would reach 75 points, which on average over the last 10 years, has just been enough to sneak into the top six.

The remaining Posh fixtures are not particularly daunting apart from a Tuesday night trip to Barnsley.

Posh host bottom club Crewe on Saturday (April 2) and then it’s Fleetwood (away, April 5), Rochdale (home, April 9), Colchester (away, April 16), Barnsley (away, April 19), Scunthorpe (home, April 23), Shrewsbury (away, April 30) and Blackpool (home, May 8).

Posh are more likely to influence the race to avoid relegation for the rest of this season.
