Aaron Mclean insists Peterborough United fans have every right to be unhappy with what they’ve seen over the last five League One matches.

The striker, who returned to the club where he made his name on loan from Bradford City last week, has played in just the last of those games, but he’s quickly picked up on the negative vibe at the club.

Posh have colleted just one point in those five matches and yet remarkably they remain just two points off a play-off place.

“For several seasons the fans at this club have been used to success,” Mclean stated.

“And so they should be. Peterborough have a great chairman and manager and a strong squad of players.

“The fans expect us to play well and they expect us to win at home so they won’t accept a run like we are on, and nor should they.

“I can assure them that everyone at the club is committed to turning our form around starting against Bristol City.

“It might seem a daunting task to play the League One leaders, but I believe it’s the perfect game for us.

“It’s a chance to show what we are about against the best team in the league live on television.

“I saw City earlier in the season and they were very good, but we have the players at this club that can hurt them.

“I have come back here to win matches and to help this club win promotion. I haven’t come back just to play first-team football again.

“Peterborough is the best club that I’ve ever played for.I had my best times here and the fans were brilliant with me from my first day to my last and whenever I came back to play against them for other clubs.

“I don’t have any regrets about coming back and that will be the case for no matter how long I stay.

“I want to show those fans that I am still worthy of their support so that means playing well and scoring goals.

“I will work hard, give 100 per cent in training and in matches and I’m confident the goals will come.

“We need the fear factor back at London Road and tomorrow’s game will be a good time to start.

“We weren’t far away from a good result last weekend. If we can be better in both penalty areas we will soon start winning games again.”

Mclean is on loan at Posh initially until the end of January.
