Peterborough will have Craig Mackail-Smith back for the FA Cup Second Round tie away at Bury.
The free-scoring striker makes his return from suspension which kept him out of the 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient on Tuesday but he might have to settle for a place on the bench as manager Gary Johnson was impressed by deputy Lee Tomlin.
Posh will be without on-loan trio Lewin Nyatanga, Marcus Williams and Adam Clayton as all three have been refused permission to play by their parent clubs.
However Posh should be able to call on captain Grant McCann after a calf strain and winger Tommy Rowe, who has not played for seven matches because of a groin problem.
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 who is still sidelined with ankle ligament damage.
