Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony has claimed he will quit as chairman if they fail to reach the play-offs this season.
Posh, managed by Darren Ferguson, are 10th in Sky Bet League One following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at AFC Wimbledon.
They are four points adrift of the top six and have lost four of their last five league games.
MacAnthony tweeted: “Let me break my usual Saturday silence to answer the critics/experts: I have so much confidence in manager/staff/players that if we don’t achieve the play offs this season I’ll step down as Chairman.”
Peterborough host second-placed Wycombe in League One on Tuesday and are winless since December 14.
