The Tigers lead Posh on goal difference, but have played two more matches. Lincoln City are third, just two points behind with in-form Sunderland five points off the top.

It’s a huge night of League One action with Lincoln travelling to play-off chasing Ipswich Town and Sunderland at sixth-placed Portsmouth, a team struggling for form.

But nothing will be decided tonight according to former Posh player and manager McCann. He told the Hull Daily Mail: “You don’t know what’s going to happen from one week to the next. We lost at Burton and so did Peterborough.

“All we can do is control what we can do and try to keep our performances good. I’ve been pleased with the last three games in terms of our performance. We’ve scored seven goals and kept three clean sheets so it’s really good to see the team is in a good mood.

“We’ve got 12 games left – there’s going to be ups and downs, twists and turns. I’m looking forward to the game at Peterborough. We just need to make sure that we are at our best.”

On February 27 Posh held a five point lead over Hull, but two home wins for the Tigers since then and one point from two games for Darren Ferguson changed the outlook at the top.

Posh came from behind to win 2-1 at Hull earlier this season.

Other key League One games tonight: Bristol Rovers v Accrington, Charlton v Northampton, Crewe v Doncaster, Swindon v Oxford.
