The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport - By Alan Swann

Grant McCann is back­ing outof-form Tom Ni­chols to come good in a Posh shirt. Ni­chols has failed to score in his last seven Posh out­ings af­ter scor­ing four goals in his first five ap­pear­ances of the sea­son.

Posh are be­calmed in midtable in League One ahead of Saturday’s trip to Southend, partly be­cause of a fail­ure to con­vert enough of the many scor­ing chances they cre­ate.

But man­ager McCann said: “I have a lot of con­fi­dence in Tom. He’s a very good foot- baller.

“His scor­ing record was good at Ex­eter which is why we signed him.

“He is still play­ing well in gen­eral play. He moves well and links up play well.

“He just needs a goal to go in any way, off his back­side even, and he will be up and run­ning. I cer­tainly haven’t lost faith in him.”
