Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson could be boosted by the return of Ryan Tafazolli and Siriki Dembele for the visit of relegation battlers Southend.
Ferguson, who signed a three-year deal to stay at London Road past the end of the season on Wednesday, should have centre-back Tafazolli available again after he missed the defeat by Coventry through illness.
Midfielder Dembele could also be involved after recovering from ankle ligament damage, which sidelined him since early February.
Defender Josh Knight, on loan from Leicester, continues his recovery from an ankle problem.
Southend will make a late check on defender Harry Lennon’s groin problem as they continue their fight for points at the other end of the table.
Shrimpers boss Chris Powell confirmed winger Stephen McLaughlin is set for a “number of weeks” on the sidelines after suffering a calf injury during last week’s home defeat by fellow relegation battlers AFC Wimbledon.
Defender Jason Demetriou is away on international duty with Cyprus, so John White, fit again from a groin problem, could step in having been an unused substitute against the Dons.
Forward Stephen Humphrys continues his recovery at home from surgery after suffering a broken nose, fractured cheekbone and eye socket when scoring at Accrington last month.
