Tomlin in line for Posh return
Peterborough forward Lee Tomlin should return to the squad for the visit of Exeter.
The former Rushden & Diamonds man signed an extended contract at London Road this week and could come back in after missing last week's 5-0 win at Oldham through illness.
However, he may struggle to claim his place back in the starting XI after stand-in David Ball marked his first start for the club with a goal at Boundary Park.
Midfielder Lee Frecklington underwent a hernia operation at the start of the week and will be sidelined for at least a month while new signing Paul Taylor will not feature.
The striker penned an 18-month contract this week but is not match fit and will not be considered for the time being.
Central defender Gabriel Zakuani has recovered from a shoulder injury, though striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.
Exeter boss Paul Tisdale has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Right-back Richard Duffy is in contention for a return to the starting line-up after fully recovering from the head injury which caused him to be named only among the substitutes against Tranmere on Tuesday.
Defender Billy Jones will return to the squad after overcoming the knock which caused him to be left out in midweek.
Tisdale must decide which system to play after switching from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 at half-time against Tranmere. If he decides on 4-3-3, strikers Daniel Nardiello and Richard Logan could be recalled to partner Jamie Cureton in attack.
The Grecians will make the trip trying to make it seven consecutive away games undefeated.
Boyd brace sees Posh home
Peterborough forward George Boyd made it a double celebration as he scored twice in a virtuoso display which helped his side to a 3-0 win against Exeter.
Boyd, who earlier this week became a father for the first time, kept Posh's promotion challenge on course with a brace and one clever assist.
He needed only 10 minutes to break the deadlock with a rasping 20-yard drive that received a kind deflection off defender Richard Duffy on its way past visiting goalkeeper Ben Hamer.
Peterborough could easily have doubled their lead moments later had marauding right-back Mark Little not selfishly shot across the face of goal from a tight angle despite having three players waiting for a pass.
The home attack was pepped up by the introduction of Lee Tomlin, and the player who signed a new four-and-a-half year contract during the week, was only a whisker away from finding the net with his first touch.
But where he failed, Boyd succeeded 16 minutes from time when he steered the ball home from close range after a great run and cut-back from Craig Mackail-Smith to register his 11th goal of the campaign.
And Boyd then turned provider for top scorer Mackail-Smith - named League One Player of the Month for February - to add the final gloss three minutes from time as he rolled his 25th goal of the season past Hamer from close range.
