Defender Jack Baldwin back to boost Peterborough

Jack Baldwin will be back to boost Peterborough for their Sky Bet League One clash with Bristol Rovers.

The defender, who has not featured since April 8, has returned to training and is available for selection.

Manager Grant McCann is likely to continue fielding some of the club's youngsters, including left-back Lewis Freestone and midfielders Callum Chettle and Leonardo Da Silva Lopes, as he builds for next season.

Norway international Martin Samuelsen, who was on loan at Posh, has returned to his parent club West Ham.

Rovers are without midfielder Ollie Clarke once again.

Clarke has not featured since limping off during the 2-0 victory over Shrewsbury on April 1 with a knee injury, but he hopes to be available for the final game of the season against Millwall next week.

James Clarke is back in contention to start after a knock, but Rovers must wait on Dan Leadbitter and Rory Gaffney who have sat out recent games through injury.

Ellis Harrison is expected to keep his place in attack after scoring the winner last weekend, and he could be partnered by Byron Moore who impressed after coming off the bench against Oldham in the final half-hour.
