The main men at Posh are united in their be­lief that 201718 can be a pro­mo­tion sea­son for the club.

Chair­man Dar­ragh MacAn­thony and man­ager Grant McCann are both full of con­fi­denceas­t­heLeagueO­neopener against Ply­mouth at the ABAX Sta­dium ap­proaches.

Both have de­liv­ered lengthy in­ter­views to the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph for this news­pa­per’s an­nual pre-sea­son sup­ple­ment.

MacAn­thony, whose tar­gets for the sea­son in­clude the League One ti­tle and 110 goals, said: “I’m ex­cited about our for­ward line, our style of play and by the po­ten­tial of our young man­ager.

“We have had to be clever with our bud­get, but we have re­cruited well. I am con­fi­dent ev­ery­one will step up and per­form.

“I pre­dict we will be there or there­abouts at Christ­mas, but then we will kick on and fin­ish the sea­son strongly.”

And McCann has matched his chair­man’s am­bi­tion.

“We have a great chance this sea­son,” he said. “I have great con­fi­dence in this squad.

“It’s a to­tally dif­fer­ent dress­ing room to last sea­son. We have as much abil­ity, but we also have stronger char­ac­ters. “We want to hit the ground run­ning, but this sea­son I ex­pect us to last the pace.”

Posh host Ply­mouth in the big kick-off on Satur­day (3pm).
