Peterborough the latest gossip

Come on Peterborough United


Peterboro v Scunthorpe preview

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Peterborough United and Scunthorpe United at London Road.

Peterborough will be without Jack Payne when Scunthorpe visit London Road.

Payne received his fifth yellow card of the season during the defeat at Coventry last weekend and the midfielder must serve a one-match suspension on Saturday.

However, defender Jack Baldwin will be available for Posh after serving his one-game ban against the Sky Blues.

Midfielder Grant McCann looks like he could be fit after a groin injury but Peterborough will still be missing striker Kyle Vassell (foot) and full-back Kgosi Ntlhe (hamstring), who both remain a couple of weeks away from a return to first-team contention.

Scunthorpe will be without striker Rory Fallon for the trip after discovering he needs surgery on a knee injury.

The 32-year-old Kiwi forward suffered the problem shortly after scoring in a recent 1-1 draw with Colchester and will now be out of action until after his contract expires in January.

On-loan goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik and defender Shaun Brisley will also be absent against their parent club, while veteran forward Deon Burton has joined York for a month.

Sam Slocombe is set to deputise between the posts, while Spanish defender Miguel Llera may get a chance to come in as Eddie Nolan is still a week or two away from returning from injury.
