On the up

Harry Redknapp has been impressed with the progress of our latest pre-season opponents Peterborough United.

We travel to London Road tonight (Tuesday, July 21) for our third friendly of the summer after 3-0 wins against Exeter City and AFC Bournemouth last week.

‘Posh' have enjoyed successive promotions under the guidance of manager Darren Ferguson, son of Sir Alex.

They are now preparing for a Championship campaign for only the second time in their history.

"What a couple of years they've had," said Harry.

"Darren Ferguson's done a fantastic job there, absolutely brilliant. He's his own man as well, you know that when you speak to him, he's very focused on what wants to achieve and has a bright future.

"Barry Fry's also there and he's a good friend of mine. It will be a great game for us. They are a good side on a fantastic run. The club is on the up."

Harry fancies Posh to maintain their Championship status. "It will be a lot harder for them in the Championship, it's a big step up and it's a tough league again next season but I'm sure they will survive.

"It's a club with momentum, not a club on the way down and that's means a lot going into the season."
