Key PlayerPeter Gain.Influential midfielder who will hope to recapture the sort of form that saw him rise to prominence under Keith Alexander at Lincoln. A creative midfielder with a sweet left foot, given time and space, the ex Tottenham man can be one of the best midfielders in the division.
StrengthsAs you might expect from a Keith Alexander side, Peterborough will be a physically strong team this season. They have big, strong, powerful attackers like Trevor Benjamin, Justin Richards and Danny Crow who will cause a few headaches for defenders.
WeaknessesService to the strikers. As Town discovered in the Play Offs with Lincoln last season, Alexander's sides may often have some handy forward players but unless they are supported by a creative midfield, there is only so much they can do.
Prediction9th. Alexander has often made the top 7 in this division and he will go close with Peterborough, but just not close enough.

Next Team: Rochdale
