Darren Ferguson says teams will be 'looking at' Peterborough United

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson has said his side's start to the season will have made other League One clubs sit up and take notice.

Posh have opened their campaign with three wins out of three after Saturday's 4-2 defeat of Notts County.

"I think people will be looking. There is no question," Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"When it comes to 5.30 on Saturday you look at other results and people will see we've won again and scored four."

Posh players double up

Four Peterborough United players - Britt Assombalonga, Lee Tomlin, Tommy Rowe and Tyrone Barnett - have each scored two goals already this season

He added: "I'm not saying it sends a message out but everyone will be fully aware we've started the season well."

Victory at Meadow Lane followed a 5-1 League Cup win over Colchester in midweek and last week's 1-0 defeat of Swindon on the opening day of the League One campaign.

And despite scoring 10 goals in their first three games - and four different players having netted twice - Ferguson is still keen to add another striker, with St Johnstone's Stevie May a known target.

"I think we need the competition," he said.

"One or two need to go out and I need to get another one in. Me, the chairman and the director of football are working on that."

Ferguson has also reiterated his desire to keep hold of attacker Lee Tomlin, who is considering the offer of a new contract amid interest from other clubs.

"Lee Tomlin is the chairman's favourite player and he's not going anywhere - unless someone wants to give us £12m and that's up to them," he said.
