Manager: Darren Ferguson

Position last season: 18th

Nickname: The Posh

Ground: London Road

Capacity: 15,315

Players in: Tyrone Barnett (Crawley, £1.2million), Shaun Brisley (Macclesfield, undisclosed), Nathanial Knight-Percival (Wrexham, free), Danny Swanson (Dundee United, free), Robert Olejnik (Torquay, undisclosed), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Wolves, undisclosed), Michael Bostwick (Stevenage, undisclosed), Jonson Clarke-Harris (Coventry, free)

Players out: Joe Lewis (Cardiff, free), Paul Jones (Crawley, free), Nathan Ralph (Yeovil, free), David Ball (Fleetwood, undisclosed)

Key man: After coming through the ranks at Rushden & Diamonds, Lee Tomlin (pictured) has continued his development as a versatile attacking player at London Road. Nine goals last season represented an excellent haul in a side which struggled at times.

Chances: Just held their own last season on their return to the second tier. Posh will be aiming for a mid-table finish but it could be another nervy conclusion to the campaign.
