McCann ready for return
Peterborough captain Grant McCann is pushing for a recall against Tranmere.
The Northern Ireland midfielder came off the bench to create both goals in the 2-0 win at Yeovil on Tuesday night and could come into the starting XI.
Grant Basey looks to have cemented his hold on the left-back place after he capped an impressive debut with a goal at Huish Park.
Central defender Gabriel Zakuani came through the 90 minutes unscathed on his return from a shoulder injury and will again partner Ryan Bennett.
Craig Mackail-Smith will lead the line once more after the striker took his tally to 22 for the season with his sixth goal in six games at Yeovil.
Manager Darren Ferguson will be without Danny Mills and Romone McCrae after they joined Blue Square Bet Premier side Kettering on loan until the end of the season while midfielder Lee Frecklington is set for an operation on his hernia which will keep him out for another month.
Tranmere boss Les Parry is unlikely to risk Max Blanchard for the trip.
The utility player is edging closer to full fitness after injury and could soon be called upon with Ian Goodison and Joss Labadie both on nine bookings for the season.
However, Parry said: "I could rush Max and involve him at the weekend but we could slip up with that one so we won't do that."
Alan Mahon remains sidelined with a hamstring injury, while fellow midfielder Ryan Fraughan has damaged medial ligaments in his knee and will be out for around six weeks.
Rookie striker Dale Jennings could return after injury, though, as Rovers seek to build on Tuesday`s thumping 3-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday.
Win moves Posh into fourth
Peterborough strengthened their grip on an npower League One play-off spot courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Tranmere.
Posh had Rovers` Enoch Showumni to thank as they claimed all three points, with the striker netting an own goal.
Showunmi contrived to steer a Grant McCann corner past his own Rovers keeper Tony Warner with 20 minutes remaining to complete a second-half turnaround.
Rovers were much the better side in the first period and were twice denied by home keeper Joe Lewis early on. He blocked from Showunmi and Lucas Atkins before the visitors were gifted the lead in the 24th minute.
Showunmi dispossessed the dithering Ryan Bennett and rolled the ball into the path of skipper John Welsh, who had no trouble slotting past Lewis from 15 yards.
That's the way it stayed until seven minutes after the interval when Grant McCann hauled Posh level. The Northern Ireland international finished smartly with a first-time effort from 15 yards after George Boyd had guided a Lee Tomlin pass into his path.
And Posh skipper McCann then turned provider as his corner led to the winner which moves Darren Ferguson's men into fourth place.
