Match Preview

Posh boosted by duo return Peterborough manager Gary Johnson will be boosted by the return of two loan players for the Friday night visit of Rochdale. Marcus Williams and Adam Clayton missed the FA Cup win at Bury last month due to the terms of their moves from Reading and Leeds but can face Dale in the League One clash. A third loanee Lewin Nyatanaga has returned to Bristol City but Johnson will have full-back Nathan Ofori-Twumasi available after his groin injury. Forward Dave Hibbert remains a long-term absentee after he dislocated his knee after coming off the bench during the 4-1 FA Cup first-round replay win over Stockport while midfielder Lee Frecklington is still sidelined with ankle ligament damage. Captain Grant McCann and wing-back Tommy Rowe both came through the 90 minutes at Bury last time out after calf and groin strains and are fine to play. Rochdale have been boosted after extending Luke Daniels' loan spell for another seven days. The West Brom goalkeeper signed last week on an emergency seven-day loan which has now been extended following injuries to Josh Lillis (hamstring) and Matty Edwards (finger). Edwards now looks set to make his Dale debut at London Road and manager Keith Hill has no other suspension or injury problems. The match looks set to beat the big freeze and go ahead as scheduled. Spotland boss Hill said: "We need to be switched on and take it that the game is on. "We cannot be caught behind the wicket, we have to be mentally, tactically and physically prepared to face Peterborough."

Match Report

Posh double act show how it`s done The deadliest strikeforce in League One did the damage as Peterborough made a long-awaited return to winning ways after a barren month with a 2-1 triumph over Rochdale. The lethal combination of Aaron Mclean and Craig Mackail-Smith took their combined tally for the season to 28 - 14 apiece - as Dale were undone at London Road. Mclean broke the deadlock in the opening period before his strike partner delivered what proved to be the killer blow after the break. Posh could well have been behind by the time Mclean slammed home with a rasping low 18th-minute drive from the edge of the box. Lee Tomlin was then only a whisker away from a picture book second goal just after the half-hour, exchanging passes with both Grant McCann and George Boyd before rolling wide. But Posh did double their advantage eight minutes into the second period when Mackail-Smith finished smartly through the legs of debutant Dale keeper Luke Daniels, who has been signed on an emergency loan from West Brom to solve a keeping crisis. Visiting boss Keith Hill responded with an attacking double substitution that saw Anthony Elding and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro introduced - and the latter gave the visitors a lifeline with 11 minutes remaining. It came in controversial fashion after appearing to take down a long pass with his arm, but there was no disputing the quality of a volleyed finish past keeper Joe Lewis. Dale continued to press during a tense finish but a fine tackle by home defender Gaby Zakuani on Jason Kennedy just as he was about to pull trigger ensured Posh emerged victorious.
