This Posh team of all the talents won the Fourth Division by three points from Gillingham thanks mainly to the only unbeaten home record in the club’s Football League history. Posh won 19 and drew four of their 23 matches at London Road.

That record was confirmed in an effective title decider against the Gills which Posh won 4-2 after a cracking encounter in front of 17,569 fans at London Road.

The only teams to take points off Posh at London Road that season were, Torquay, Bradford City, Chester and Bury.

The current Posh team are also brilliant at home. They have dropped just five points in their first 13 League One matches at London Road (P13 W10 D2 L1).

Posh only used 19 players in Division Four that season (only one sub per game was allowed) and three of them, captain John Cozens, ace midfielder Freddie Hill and winger Tommy Robson played in all 46 matches, while defenders Mick Jones and Jeff Lee missed just one match.

We’ve featured the players with the 12 most appearances below. The other seven to take part in a memorable campaign were Dave Llewelyn, Keith Oakes, Dave Gregory, Jack Carmichael, Dougal McLachlan, Brendan Phillips and Alan Lewis.

McLachlan and Phillips made just one appearance each, while Lewis joined on loan from Derby late on in the season and replaced the injured Keith Bradley.
