LEE CLARK and Darren Ferguson both vowed to maintain the push for automatic promotion as Southampton claimed League I’s coveted second spot.
Leaders Brighton are one win away from claiming a place in the Championship after their 2-0 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
But it’s all to play for below, with just six points separating Saints, who won 2-0 at Leyton Orient, and fifth-placed MK Dons.
Town are on the same 74-points mark as Saints, and although the South coast side have two games in hand, including a trip to Rochdale tomorrow, Galpharm boss Lee Clark insisted: “Of course we can get back in the top two.
“We’ve continued a fantastic unbeaten run against a good side in Peterborough and there will be plenty more twists and turns.
“We face a tough game down at Charlton on Saturday, but if we keep showing determination and desire, we can go there and win the match.”
Peterborough manager Ferguson, whose side are three points behind Town and Southampton, said: “It was definitely two points dropped for us but at this stage, we’re not even thinking about the play-offs.
“We still think we can get automatic promotion.
“We might need to win all of our last five games to have a chance and you’d have to say it’s advantage Southampton, but until someone says otherwise we think second spot is still up for grabs.”
