No new worries for Ferguson
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Colchester.
Captain Grant McCann was restored to the starting XI against Tranmere on Saturday and scored one and made the other so will keep his place in midfield.
Central defender Gabriel Zakuani has recovered from a shoulder injury and will again partner Ryan Bennett.
Midfielder Lee Frecklington is set for an operation on his hernia which will keep him out for another month so Charlie Lee is likely to play alongside McCann.
Striker Dave Hibbert is the only other absentee as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.
A 12th home win of the season could see Posh climb into third place in the npower League One table.
Colchester will check on Pat Baldwin and Steven Gillespie ahead of the trip.
Defender Baldwin (Achilles) and striker Gillespie (hamstring) have missed the last two matches through injury but neither problem is too serious.
If the duo are passed fit, they may have to settle for places on the bench after the Us secured a 2-0 victory over Walsall on Saturday.
Defensive pair Magnus Okuonghae and Brian Wilson are close to returning from ankle injuries, although they will probably need a reserve game under their belts.
Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole remains a long-term absentee with a cruciate injury.
The Us have not won on the road since October and have not scored in their last six away matches.
Away-day goal glee earns Us Posh point
Colchester ended their away goal drought to earn a 1-1 draw and check the progress of play-off chasing Peterborough.
Ian Henderson's hopeful effort, which hauled the Us level at London Road, was their first goal on the road in 566 minutes of football.
Henderson struck after 17 minutes during an all-action opening quarter, looping a shot into the far corner with the outside of his boot after collecting a long throw from Nathan Clarke.
Peterborough went ahead after just six minutes. Keeper Ben Williams had already pulled off a double save to deny Craig Mackail-Smith and George Boyd by the time the latter drilled in a shot from the edge of the box.
Chances continued to come thick and fast at both ends with Colchester striker Kayode Odejayi steering a header wide and Lee Tomlin curling an effort against a post. And it was a similar story in the second half as only last-ditch Ryan Bennett defending denied David Mooney as he went through on goal before keeper Joe Lewis' fingertips kept out a late Henderson blast.
There was still time for late drama at the other end as Williams palmed away a Mackail-Smith rocket before also stopping a Charlie Lee header.
