Ashley Hunter wants to finish on a high with two games left, and Peterborough coming up this Saturday afternoon.

Town travel to The London Road Stadium this weekend for their final away journey of the season and face a Posh side who look to have missed out on the play-off places.

With the disappointment of last week's result against Wigan Athletic, Hunter and his side now the importance of putting things right straight away.

Here is what the winger had to say…

On the whole campaign…

"It hasn't been as good as we expected from the start of the season, especially coming off the back of last season where we closely missing out on promotion.

"We wanted to be up there again however that hasn't happened. Luckily, we look like we will still be in the league another year and I'm sure we will go again.

"We did lose some key players with Conor McAleny being injured for a long time after his great start to the season, but there's no excuses.

"I hope we can go out next season and do better than what we did this year."

On the last two games of the season and being motivated…

"We want to finish as high up the table as we possibly can, and I don't think we are mathematically safe yet so to get that point or three points on Saturday will be nice.

"Peterborough are a good side and I hope we can go there get the points. I believe they have a few injuries but to get that safety mark; that will be our aim."

On playing in a number of positions… 

"My best position for me is as a number nine, but I am happy to play anywhere and getting minutes under my belt is what I need.

"With the time I have been getting on the pitch recently, my fitness has got a lot better and I am proving to people and myself, that I can play anywhere to help the team."

On his personal highlights of this season… 

"The second half of the season has been good for me as I have played in the majority of matches from the start. I didn't get much opportunity at the beginning of the season.

"I have scored a few good goals, and as pointed out, played in various positions.

"Leicester was a game I really enjoyed playing in and signing a new contract at the club is one of the best things this season for me. For the club to put the time and effort into me is good."

On the managerial situation…

"I have never had it where the current manager has been here and another one is coming in, but I am just taking every day as it goes.

"There is that kind of pressure with the new manager being there last match, but I thought I played okay so hopefully he has a good first impression of me.”

"I will do my best on the pitch this Saturday and when I am out there, we get the results which is the most important thing at the moment."
