Peterborough V Doncaster at ABAX Stadium : Match Preview

31 December 2017
Peterborough set for changes against illness-ravaged Doncaster

Peterborough manager Grant McCann may opt to ring the changes for the visit of Doncaster following his side's disappointing display on Saturday.

Posh suffered defeat at MK Dons at the weekend, failing to break down a team who played with nine men for around 55 minutes.

Striker Junior Morias made his comeback from a thigh problem as a substitute in that game and could could be handed a start.

Defender Jack Baldwin is close to returning from a hamstring issue but midfielder Gwion Edwards (ankle) remains out.

Doncaster boss Darren Ferguson could be without several players due to a virus which has swept through his squad.

Forward Alfie Beestin and midfielder Rodney Kongolo both missed Friday's home win against Rochdale due to flu-like symptoms and remain doubtful.

Striker Alfie May and defender Mathieu Baudry are also affected and Ferguson cancelled Saturday's training session in a bid to control the illness.

Defender Craig Alcock, striker Liam Mandeville and winger Matty Blair are pushing for starting places as Rovers chase a fourth straight league win.
