Freck banned for Posh
Lee Frecklington has added to Peterborough`s problems ahead of the visit of Derby.
Frecklington was sent off for two bookable offences during the first half of the 2-1 defeat at Championship leaders Southampton on Tuesday night and must serve a one-match ban. The midfielder joins forward Lee Tomlin on the suspension list. Tomlin will complete his three-game absence against the Rams.
With defenders Craig Alcock and Scott Wootton and teenage midfielder Joe Newell out injured, manager Darren Ferguson has just 16 players available. The shortage of senior players will see Ferguson include 15-year-old striker Jannai Gordon Hutton on the bench.
Josh Thompson, Daniel Kearns, David Ball and Emile Sinclair are pushing for recalls.
Derby`s visit is the final game before the international break, and Ferguson admits the two-week sabbatical will come at just the right time for Posh.
He said: "The break will do us good as we need to get players back."
Russell Anderson has added to Derby`s injury problems.
Anderson limped off after 32 minutes of the 3-0 home defeat to Cardiff on Wednesday night with a damaged hamstring. Jake Buxton, another central defender, came on and filled in at right-back in a patched-up back four which saw Kevin Kilbane partner stand-in skipper Jason Shackell, who has been battling on with a hip problem, at centre-half in the absence of Mark O`Brien (shoulder).
Anderson had been helping out at right-back with last season`s player-of-the-year John Brayford sidelined by a thigh injury. The Scot had started in the position in four of the last five matches.
With Anderson a major doubt and O`Brien receiving pain-killing injections and likely to remain out, Kilbane and the recently fit-again Buxton could be asked to play out of position once more at London Road.
Manager Nigel Clough is already without captain Shaun Barker (knee), fellow defenders Chris Riggott, O`Brien and Brayford, midfielders James Bailey and Paul Green and forwards Steven Davies (fractured skull), Nathan Tyson (groin) and Theo Robinson (hamstring).
With the two-week international break set to kick in after the game on Saturday, Clough may opt not to rush back any of his injured players. Schoolboy Mason Bennett could retain his place after making his full home debut in midweek but fellow teenager Callum Ball, Tomasz Cywka and Conor Doyle are also options.
McCann late show down Rams
Grant McCann's injury-time rocket completed a superb comeback for Peterborough as Darren Ferguson's side halted a three-game losing run in the npower Championship with a 3-2 victory over Derby.
Goals from Theo Robinson either side of the half-hour mark put Derby in control. Robinson then blew the opportunity of a hat-trick and the chance to put the game beyond Peterborough when he skied an effort over the crossbar.
It was to prove costly as Paul Taylor pulled a goal back before Tommy Rowe equalised early in the second half and McCann stole the points for Posh.
Injury and suspension left Peterborough manager Ferguson with just 16 players to choose from, prompting him to include 15-year-old striker Jannai Gordon Hutton among the substitutes.
The only change for Posh from the defeat to league leaders Southampton in midweek saw Emile Sinclair come in for Lee Frecklington, who was sent off at St Mary's.
An Injury list in double figures also limited the options of Derby boss Nigel Clough, who included his own 15-year-old striker on the bench in the shape of Mason Bennett.
Clough made four changes after the heavy home defeat to Cardiff on Wednesday night. Jake Buxton and Mark O'Brien came into the defence while Robinson and Conor Doyle were recalled up front.
Robinson threatened early on and Taylor replied soon afterwards but neither player tested the opposing goalkeeper.
Derby's Frank Fielding was the first to be worked when he tipped a 20-yard effort from George Boyd over the crossbar after 22 minutes.
The Rams took the lead in the 28th minute. Both Jamie Ward and Robinson broke the offside trap after a long ball over the top from O'Brien but it was the latter who latched on to the pass and beat Paul Jones in the Peterborough goal.
Four minutes later it was 2-0. Ward got free down the left-hand side and his cross just eluded Gabby Zakuani, enabling Robinson to steer the ball home from just inside the area.
Robinson could have all but sealed the win and completed his hat-trick but he fired over the crossbar.
Taylor made him pay when he collected Mark Little's pass and fired into the roof of the net from 15 yards eight minutes before half-time.
Peterborough were level after 51 minutes. It looked a lost cause as Boyd chased down a Derby defender, who attempted to shepherd the ball out of play. However, Boyd managed to poke the ball into the danger area and Rowe slotted home from close range.
Jones ensured that all Peterborough's hard work did not count for nothing when he tipped a shot from Ward round the post just after the hour.
There were half-chances at either end as both sides went for the victory, which came Peterborough's way when McCann blasted home a left-footed volley from the edge of the area in the third of five added minutes.
