That's despite the Blues' disappointing opening third of the season, with some supporters already writing off Kenny Jackett's side's chances of finishing in the play-offs.

Pompey sit 13th in the table, collecting 21 points from 15 matches. 

As a result, Jackett has come under fire from sections of the Fratton faithful and has his detractors.

But MacAnthony – whose Posh sit third on 27 points – isn't looking at the Blues' start to the campaign as poor.

And the Irishman stressed it's how you end the season that ultimately counts.

Speaking in a Youtube Q&A, MacAnthony said: ‘I wouldn't be looking at Pompey as poor in any way.

‘It doesn't matter how you start, it is how you finish.

‘It's a massive club, who will definitely be up there, with a very experienced manager.’

Peterborough travel to Fratton Park on Saturday, December 7.
