They are currently 7th in L1 with 41 points – one place outside the play off places.
Peterborough have had 2 matches postponed due to a frozen pitch including one controversially called off 90 minutes before kick off which has resulted in Peterborough paying for 30 coaches for Charlton supporters for the re-arranged match.

In the transfer window Peterborough have signed defender Nathanael Ogbeta on loan from Swansea and goalkeeper Will Norris on loan from Burnley. Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson says he thinks the squad he has inherited is good enough to get promoted without many new signings. Ferguson does not think he needs to do much even though defenders Kell Watts and Joe Tomlinson are facing lengthy spells out injured, and on-loan goalkeeper Lucas Bergstrom has been recalled by Chelsea.
On transfer deadline day Peterborough signed Chesterfield striker Kabongo Tshimanga. The 25-year-old has agreed a loan deal until the end of the season before a permanent move to the League One side in the summer. He has scored 31 goals in 42 National League appearances since joining Chesterfield at the start of last season, having scored 40 goals in the previous two campaigns at Boreham Wood.
Mark Cooper former FGR & Peterborough Manager
Mark Cooper followed his famous father Terry, the great Leeds & England full back, into the sport, starting his career with Bristol City in 1987. During a 22-year playing career he was at 17 clubs, including 2002-2 making forty-eight appearances and scoring eighteen goals for FGR. He played 457 league games, during which he scored 115 goals, with his five-year spell at non-league Tamworth being his longest at any club. At two of his final three clubs, he also combined the role with being manager. He then went into management full-time, with clubs both outside and within EFL.
In November 2009, Cooper, at the time manager of Kettering, agreed to a three-and-a-half-year contract to become Darren Ferguson’s successor as manager of then Championship side Peterborough. Cooper was sacked just thirteen games into his tenure on 1 February 2010 with only one win in those thirteen games
After leaving Peterborough Cooper managed Darlington, Kettering (again), Telford, Swindon, who he took to the L1 playoff final, & Notts County. After leaving Notts County, Cooper became manager of FGR; when he joined, on 9 May, they had just reached the 2016 National League Play off Final, although caretaker manager Scott Bartlett took charge for the final at Wembley, which FGR lost, with Cooper in an advisory role. The following season he oversaw FGR’s historic promotion to the Football League. On 11 April 2021, Forest Green Rovers parted company with Cooper after five years at the club.
In 2021/22 season Cooper managed Barrow and is now the Yeovil manager.
