"We shouldn’t fear anyone in the division," says midfielder ahead of Posh and Black Cats fixtures
Flynn Downes says that Town's upcoming back-to-back home games are a chance to lay down a marker for the rest of the campaign.
Peterborough visit Portman Road on Saturday before Sunderland travel to Suffolk on the following Tuesday night, the latter in front of the Sky cameras.
The Blues midfielder started for the first time since October in last weekend's Burton victory, having come off the bench a week earlier.
Flynn, who is the feature interview for Saturday's programme, hopes that the Posh fixture can be the beginning of a better record against promotion rivals in League One.
"Yeah they’re massive," Flynn told the matchday programme ahead of the Peterborough and Sunderland clashes. "We have that statistic about us not doing too well against the teams higher up in the division and obviously we want to put that to bed.
"Perhaps it can play on our mind subconsciously, I’m not sure. What I do know, though, is that we shouldn’t fear anyone in the division. You have to be in the right state of mind going into games and we want to lay down a marker in these next two, starting with Peterborough.
"We’re at home as well and we want to take the game to them. Peterborough have some good players but we want to focus on ourselves. We are more than good enough and we need to show it - it’ll be an interesting one."
The full interview with Flynn can be found in Saturday's matchday programme, which is still available to pre-order.
