Posh boss Dave Robertson will send his players out for the final League One game of the season at Oldham on Sunday demanding that they win three points as a tribute to Chris Turner.

Turner, the greatest Posh manager of all-time in the eyes of many, passed away this week aged 64 and Robertson will use that sad news to inspire his players.

Robertson said: “Chris Turner’s Posh legacy is magnificent and the current staff and players can pay their respects by winning a game of football on Saturday and dedicating the three points to him and his family. He will form part of my pre-match chat with the players.

“Chris was an inspiration to everyone he worked with and to everyone he met. His achievements and his personality will always be remembered.

“He was a fantastic player, a great captain and a manager who galavanised a group of players into reaching the highest finish in the club’s Football League history.

“He also went on to be chairman, chief executive and club owner. His understanding of our club was incredible and he is someone we should all aspire to be.

“His team never went out on a pitch and gave less than 100 per cent, but they could play as well. He is a true Posh legend.
