“/>Mo Eisa in action with Luke Chambers in last season’s Posh v Ipswich match on London Road which ended 2-2.

Crewe, who is ninth and will visit Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday (February 6), is Posh’s top-ranked opponent this month, but this season has shown how dangerous it is to judge a team by league position alone.

Posh has already failed to beat bottom club Burton and the struggling Bristol Rovers at home this season and their only loss at Weston Homes Stadium was to Blackpool, who is currently twelfth.

Posh has also lost to AFC Wimbledon (22nd) and Shrewsbury (17th) this season, so they won’t take anything for granted in February’s games with midfielders Gillingham, Blackpool and Plymouth.
