Nottingham Forest -Vs- Peterborough United
Venue: City Ground
Date: 26th December, 2011
Peterborough United travel to midlands rivals Nottingham Forest hoping to put an end to a nightmare set of Boxing Day results.
Posh have won just once on Boxing Day in the last 10 years! That came three seasons ago in a rare home game against Millwall. In all that time, Posh have only had two games at home on Boxing Day!
Forest are still without the injured defender Wes Morgan (ankle), striker Ishmael Miller (foot) and long-term absentee Chris Cohen (knee).
They are waiting on Joel Lynch (groin) with Brendan Moloney or Guy Moussi on standby if Lynch is ruled out.
Posh are still without injured skipper Grant McCann but received some encouraging news about Lee Tomlin and Lee Frecklington who are both responding well to treatment.
Team selection all depends on the fitness of Tomlin and Frecks but if one or both are ruled out, Scott Wootton could be a surprise selection. Wootton has been out of action for two months after picking up a knee injury in training. He has been recuperating at his parent club Manchester United but he is now back at Posh and is in contention for the defensive midfield role vacated by McCann.
Ryan Tunnicliffe and Daniel Kearns both did enough to keep their places.
George Boyd will once again deputise against the team he spent some time on loan two seasons ago.
Striker Emile Sinclair is also looking forward to keeping his starting pace against his former team.
Vital Posh predicts the starting line-up could be:
Alcock, Bennett, Zakuani, Rowe
Frecklington, Tunnicliffe, Kearns, Boyd
