Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has backed Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion and Nottingham Forest for promotion next term.
The Posh co-owner also claims that Forest could be outsiders to win the play-offs, with Aitor Karanka’s side set to invest heavily over the summer.

West Brom and Stoke head into the campaign as two of the favourites for promotion, but Forest are considered long-shots.
Forest disappointed over the past campaign, with the Reds only managing to finish in mid-table.
However, there is hope that Karanka could be the man to take them forward this season.
Forest did show glimpses that they may be putting the pieces into place to mount a promotion push towards the back end of the term, and they are expected to invest heavily over the summer.
Michael Dawson has already arrived at the City Ground this summer, to increase the experience in their backline.
