Posh -Vs- Doncaster - Match Preview


Peterborough United report no fresh injuries ahead of their game against Doncaster Rovers.

Lee Tomlin had a scan on his ankle injury and has been ruled out for 3 to 4 weeks which could give an opportunity for Danny Kearns and Joe Newell to get vital playing time, albeit starting from the subs bench.

Gaby Zakuani will once again go through the pain barrier and have injections for his broken toe but will be looking to give his injury a good rest over the International break following the game.

With Posh celebrating their first away win of the season on Tuesday, they will be looking to get their first back-to-back wins this season.

Posh expect to name an unchanged line-up for the game.


Doncaster arrive at London Road with an unbeaten record under new manager Dean Saunders.

Saunders will be hoping to build on the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and a battling 1-1 draw with Hull City as he reports no fresh injuries ahead of the game.

Striker Billy Sharp is pushing for a starting place after playing 40 minutes in the Hull match. Ryan Mason is also hoping to be back in the squad after recovering from an ankle injury sustained earlier in the season.

New signing Pascal Chimbonda is expected to be named in the squad but Adam Lockwood, Paul Keegan, Martin Woods, James Chambers and Chris Brown will all be missing through injury.
