Peterborough United midfielder Tommy Rowe says they will continue to give their all for Jim Gannon despite the manager's imminent departure.The 21-year-old has started every match under Gannon, who turned down the offer of a long-term contract on Tuesday. [LNB]He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Nothing has changed and we're continuing the way we were before he announced his decision. [LNB]"It's a disappointing time, but we all sympathise with his reasons." [LNB]Despite their recent success under Gannon, Posh are destined for an immediate return to League One following promotion last summer. [LNB]Rowe was signed from Stockport in June, but had struggled to make an impact before the arrival of Gannon. [LNB] [LNB][LNB] Nevertheless he is keen to stay at the club for next season and believes they will make an impact in League One. [LNB]"I've still got two more years after this season and I think next year will be a lot more positive," he said. [LNB]Posh host Bristol City at London Road on Saturday and are looking to make amends for three straight defeats. [LNB]Gannon is confident his decision to leave come the end of the season will not affect how the team perform. [LNB]"It was always a major issue for me how this would be handled by the club, but there's still a massive job to do ahead of next season," he said. [LNB] [LNB][LNB] "I had a good chat with the players and they understand my decision and respect it." [LNB]Wolves loanee Mark Little is likely to be out for the season after suffering a hamstring strain in Tuesday's 4-0 defeat at Scunthorpe. [LNB]Liam Dickinson, Ryan Bennett, and Craig Morgan are closing in on a return to match action but Saturday's match will come too soon.
