Peterborough striker Craig Mackail-Smith believes winning promotion to the Championship would cap off a remarkable season for him.

Mackail-Smith, who has scored 34 goals in all competitions and earned a call-up to the Scotland national squad, is rumoured to be leaving London Road after Sunday's play-off final against Huddersfield at Old Trafford.

However, the forward, attracting interest from a whole host of clubs after an impressive campaign, is determined to end the season on a high. "It's been a great season for me personally and I would love to end it by helping the club achieve promotion to the Championship, which has been our aim since August," he told the club's official website.

"We are playing a match in a fantastic stadium and we can't wait to get started but it might be the only time some of us play at Old Trafford and we don't want to spoil it by losing.


"We have total confidence in our ability and it would be the greatest achievement in my time at the club if we were to win promotion back to the Championship."

Mackail-Smith's goal in the 2-0 second-leg victory over MK Dons proved decisive in their play-off semi-final tie.
