THEY say you should never go back but try telling that to Darren Ferguson.

The Scots boss returned to Peterborough last year to take charge for the third time and hasn't looked back.

Posh were racing towards the play-off last season when the pandemic took hold and denied them a chance to go up.

Everyone at the club felt cheated but Ferguson has taken the setback in his stride and made the team stronger.

Peterborough top League One and have won nine out of 10 games in all competitions.

Next up on Saturday is a visit to Crewe who have lost four out of five league games but did boost morale with victory over League Two Bolton in the FA Cup last week.

Peterborough are the league's highest scorers with 21 and 23-20 on them to win with William Hill looks decent value.

Sunderland rested players last week and paid the penalty as they exited the FA Cup at the first attempt at home to Mansfield.

They lie four points adrift of Peterborough and it's clear promotion is the priority. They should take care of an MK Dons side who have won one in six. Sunderland are 4-6 at bet365 and Paddy Power.

In League Two Carlisle and Cheltenham are both going well and holding top-six places.

Most of Carlisle's best work has been at Brunton Park with five out of five wins and they can maintain their 100 per cent home record today with a win that pays 6-4 at McBookie.

However, on a treble I'm taking Carlisle draw no bet.

Top Treble

  • Peterborough
  • Sunderland
  • Carlisle draw no bet
  • (11-2, Betfred)
