Peterborough United have picked up their form after a slight drop-off in recent weeks and a return to the Championship is still within their reach.

Peterborough United currently occupy 4th place in the table. They have a game in hand over Bolton Wanderers and Derby County above them, but they did lose 1-0 during their last encounter against league leaders Portsmouth.

There are a number of players within Darren Ferguson’s squad that have already played at Championship level, but there are no doubt some younger members of the squad who could become established stars at that level and above. younger members of the side.

Here, we pick out three Peterborough United players who are capable of making the step-up to the second-tier in the near future…

Kwame Poku

A fine member of the Peterborough United frontline, Poku has excelled this season having registered 12 goals and nine assists in all competitions.

The 22-year-old is enjoying his best goalscoring campaign by far and seems to be maturing into an excellent asset out wide. He has 20 Championship appearances to his name already, though he failed to hit the back of the net during that spell. His current performance level, however, suggests that he will soon be ready to step up and star in another shot at that level.

Ephron Mason-Clark

Mason-Clark is bound for the league above next season regardless of how the Posh’s season concludes. And after shining in League One, many will back him to thrive in the Championship.

The 24-year-old winger has scored 18 times and registered 12 assists in all competitions this campaign, showcasing fantastic form which convinced Coventry City to snap him up in January before loaning him back. The Sky Blues will be readily awaiting his arrival.

Who is this?

Malik Mothersille

Perhaps not quite at the level of Poku or Mason-Clark just yet, but Mothersille is an exciting prospect and has particularly made a name for himself through his EFL Trophy appearances.

The 20-year-old, previously on the books of Chelsea, has scored three and assisted two during six matches in the lower league cup competition, chipping in with a further three assists in the league. Exceptionally tidy with the ball at his feet, the youngster is bound to develop his game further with Peterborough United and could well find himself playing at a higher level in the coming years.
