Peterborough United went all the way to Wembley and brought home the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy after a 3-1 scoreline against League Two side Chesterfield. But their manager Darren Ferguson wants to see even more of Wembley.
“We’ve spoke about it all week, that once we’ve had a taste of this place [Wembley] – and it’s a fantastic arena – we’ll want to come back”, said the 42-year old manager after the cup final win. Ferguson was very happy to get a successful break from their recent League One struggles, where the cold numbers come up with only two wins in their past seven games.
Currently the Posh manager is hoping that the club will rediscover their form as a result of the cup success: “This has come just at the right time for us. It could really energise us.”
And if the London Road outfit, with one point and two games in hand on 7th-placed Swindon Town, should make the play-offs to enter the Championship, Ferguson is really optimistic: “It’s going to be hard to sustain the play-offs but the one thing I did say to the players before the match is that teams don’t like playing Peterborough in one-off games. They definitely don’t, we’ve got a really good record. If we do get to the play-offs, and I’m confident we will, we have a good chance.”
