Plenty of clubs still scrapping for Championship survival says manager Darren Ferguson
Posh players determined to end poor start to Championship
Ipswich Town have completed the signing of Paul Taylor from Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee.
Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson says that his team will be looking to continue their recent fine form when they visit Gillingham in League One this weekend.
Posh have won their last three games in all competitions, scoring nine goals and conceding none in the process.
That sequence included an impressive 3-0 victory over Newport County to seal the club's place in the Southern Section Area Final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
It marks a stunning turnaround for Posh who had endured an awful run of five defeats on the bounce going into December.
Peterborough United have moved to within touching distance of securing a new-year Wembley date after beating Newport County in the Southern Section Area Semi-Final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Goals from Kgosi Ntlhe, Grant McCann and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing handed Posh a comfortable 3-0 victory over their League Two opponents.
They'll now face Swindon Town over two legs in the Area Final in February for a place at Wembley, where the winner will take on the champion from the Northern Section.
However, Stevenage's Wembley dreams are over after they were beaten on penalties by the aforementioned Swindon.
Peterborough United have recalled midfielder Kane Ferdinand from his loan spell at League Two strugglers Northampton Town.
The 21-year-old has been a regular in the Cobblers engine room since arriving at Sixfields last month, and played a starring role in Tuesday's precious draw at Chesterfield.
Ferdinand will now be available for Peterborough's crunch clash with League One leaders Wolves on Saturday.
Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has revealed that the club have been involved in "honest discussions" this week as they bid to halt an alarming run of form which has seen them lose their last three games.
Posh host local rivals Stevenage tomorrow and will be hoping to get back to winning ways.
Peterborough United have signed Queens Park Rangers midfielder Hogan Ephraim on a month's loan.
The 25-year-old has recently returned from a spell in the MLS with Toronto FC and has previously played in League One with Leeds United and Charlton Athletic.
The former England under-19 international will go straight into the Posh squad for this weekend's FA Cup tie against Exeter City.
Speaking to the club's official website, Ephraim said that he was looking forward to playing in front of the Peterborough United fans:
"I have played at London Road before and was on the losing side and know exactly how loud the home fans can be.
"I can play in a number of positions in midfield or behind the strikers, but obviously I am just looking to play. It is up to me to impress in training,"
England Under 21 striker Saido Berahino praised Peterborough United and Northampton Town for their roles in helping him develop into a Premier League player. The 20 year old had spells on loan with both clubs from West Bromwich Albion. He scored twice in England's 5-0 win over Lithuania at Ipswich.
Peterborough United have announced that the club and Peterborough City Council have both formally signed documentation regarding the redevelopment of London Road.
Posh want to expand the stadium's capacity to 19,000 and talks with the Council were at an advanced stage in September.
Representatives of Posh and @peterboroughcc have formally signed documentation regarding the redevelopment of the London Road Stadium.
Peterborough United defender Kgosi Ntlhe has been called up to the South Africa squad for their friendly against Morocco later this month.
The 19-year-old has never been capped at senior level but will join up with Bafana Bafana for the first time for the fixture on Friday 11 October.
As a result, Ntlhe will miss United's game at Port Vale.
Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has been named as the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for September.
The 25-year-old beat off competition from former Norwich City duo Robert Green and Jason Shackell to land the accolade, as well as Reading midfielder Danny Guthrie.
Former Nottingham Forest forward McGoldrick hit four goals in a successful month, netting twice in games against Middlesbrough and Brighton and Hove Albion.
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy told the club's official website that he was pleased with McGoldrick's contribution so far this term.
"We’re delighted to see Didzy (McGoldrick) pick up this award and it’s well deserved.
“He was excellent for us last season when he joined on loan but he has stepped up another level this year.”
However, there wasn't such good news for Peterborough United's Britt Assombalonga who missed out on the League 1 award to Leyton Orient forward David Mooney.
The Posh man continued his blistering start to the season by finding the back of the net in wins over Bristol City and MK Dons, but it wasn't enough for him to add to the Football League Young Player of the Month award received earlier in the season.
Peterborough United have re-signed striker Paul Taylor on loan from Ipswich Town.
The 25-year-old left London Road in 2012, signing for the Tractor Boys in a reported million pound plus deal.
However, Taylor missed a large chunk of his debut season in Suffolk thanks to a foot injury and Town boss Mick McCarthy has decided to allow the forward to leave on a temporary basis in a bid to step up his match fitness.
After an injury to Lee Tomlin, Posh have now swooped to bring back their former player on a loan deal that will run until 2 November.
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson told the club's official website that he had his chairman, Darragh MacAnthony, to thank for making the deal happen.
"I had a conversation with the chairman on Wednesday afternoon. We were aware that Lee (Tomlin) had his scan in the evening and that we were getting the results on Thursday morning.
"He suggested Paul Taylor and I have to be honest, I didn't think of him because I didn't think we could do a deal. However, Ipswich have allowed him to come out and get games so I thank Mick McCarthy for making the deal happen.
"I was quite happy to go with what I had, but when it became clear we could get him, I couldn't turn that opportunity down. Paul is a very good player and that is why he got the move he did."
