MacAnthony has called for an all-out attacking policy in the last seven games of the season, starting with the trip to lowly Swindon Town on Saturday (April 10).

Second-placed Posh are involved in a tense three-way fight for automatic promotion with Hull and Sunderland.

“Everyone thinks the bigger clubs Hull and Sunderland will win promotion,” MacAnthony said in the latest edition of his ‘Hard Truth’ podcast. “But I wouldn’t swap my players for theirs. Man for man the other teams should be worried about us.

“We shouldn’t fear anyone. We built this squad for this moment. We put together a squad to win promotion and now it’s time for them show how good they are. It’s the same with the management team and I have every confidence in all of them.

“I want to see a goalfest. Never mind the clean sheets, let’s go on the attack or Hull will be off into the distance and Sunderland will come past us. I’m excited to be in a title race as well as a promotion race. We all just need to focus on what’s in front of us.

“If my players want to become Championship footballers they just need to go out and win seven games.

“Ignore who’s got who to play. This is a time when backsides are quivering no matter what the opposition.”

Posh are expected to reveal the results of goalkeeper Christy Pym’s scan on a hip injury today (April 8). Forward Sammie Szmodics is also struggling with a shoulder injury.
