Mendez-Laing missing for Posh

17 December 2010 10:30
Peterborough will travel to face Dagenham & Redbridge without Nathaniel Mendez-Laing. The on-loan Wolves winger has been battling a troublesome groin strain since the summer and is not fit enough to take part this weekend. Midfielder Lee Frecklington misses out with an ankle injury and Dave Hibbert is a long-term absentee with a dislocated knee. The former Shrewsbury striker underwent surgery last week and could return early in the new year. Aaron McLean and Craig Mackail-Smith took their tally to 14 goals apiece against Rochdale and the strikers should continue up front at Victoria Road. Top scorers in the division, Posh manager Gary Johnson will hope to use the match as an opportunity to leapfrog Oldham and Colchester into the play-off places.
