Other Information - Aaron Mclean was shortlisted for the League One player of the month for December, and the winner will be announced on Monday evening.
Andrew Crofts (midfield) said he was keen to stay with Posh after his loan deal expires. "Hopefully we can sort out a permanent deal, the indications are good. Since I've been here I've really enjoyed it, the club is going places and I want to be part of it," he said.
Director Barry Fry believes manager Darren Ferguson would only leave the club for a Premier League side. Sir Alex's son has been linked with moves to clubs such as QPR and Derby after leading Peterborough promotion in his first season in charge and guiding them to fourth in League One. "He knows there's a credit crunch on, and he knows full well that he wouldn't be supported at other clubs in the way that he is supported here," said Fry.
