Doncaster's former Posh boss Grant McCann has led his current team back above his old team.

Doncaster are now sixth - the final play-off slot - two points ahead of Posh and both teams have seven games to go. Doncaster also boast a much better goal difference.

McCann’s men could pull five points clear of Posh on Saturday (March 30) as they host struggling Walsall, while Posh have no fixture. Blackpool (home to Plymouth) and Coventry (away to Barnsley) could also overtake Posh at the weekend.

Posh return to action at home to Gillingham on Saturday, April 6.
