Same again for Posh

Nathaniel Knight-Percival has recovered from an ankle injury to enable Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson to name an unchanged side against Bolton at London Road.

Centre-half Knight-Percival hobbled off midway through the second half of last Saturday's surprise 2-1 win at npower Championship leaders Cardiff.

Ferguson said: "Nat is fine. Obviously I never declare my team too early as I have to take into account the tactics and strength of the opposition, but it would be hard to make any changes after the performance at Cardiff."

Should Posh be unchanged, defenders Craig Alcock, Shaun Brisley and Kane Ferdinand, midfielders Danny Swanson and Grant McCann and striker Jaanai Gordon-Hutton, who scored twice in a FA Youth Cup win this week, could again make up the substitutes.

David Ngog is pushing for a start for Bolton.

Ngog came off the bench to bag a brace as Dougie Freedman's men overcame Charlton 2-0 at the Reebok Stadium last weekend.

On-loan Aston Villa full-back Stephen Warnock completes his spell this weekend, although Wanderers are keen on seeking an extension.

The situation among Freedman's long-term absentees remains unchanged.

Midfielder Mark Davies is sidelined for around three months after undergoing shoulder surgery, defender Matt Mills will not feature again until the new year with a thigh injury while Stuart Holden, David Wheater and Josh Vela remain unavailable due to long-term knee problems.

Bolton captain Kevin Davies is determined to see his team-mates follow up last week's success with another positive result.

"We've had a positive result a few times and not followed it up," he told Wanderers' official website. "Frustration is a word I've probably mentioned 50 times this year.

"It's important that we now carry on working hard. If you slack off you won't win games, it's not possible in this league."M
