Lee Angol in the frame to return for Peterborough

Peterborough striker Lee Angol could be back in contention as they welcome Chesham in the Emirates FA Cup first round game on Sunday.

Angol returned to training last week following a foot injury but Brad Inman, who is struggling with a similar foot injury, remains sidelined and Jermaine Anderson (knee) is out for the rest of the season.

United striker Joe Gormley, who was on loan at Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone, will no longer be part of the squad after he decided to quit professional football on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old suffered a serious knee injury in 2015 and Posh director of football Barry Fry has said that he had become "disillusioned with football."

Chesham boss Andy Leese will be looking towards his experienced campaigners as the Southern Premier League side look for another famous scalp having beaten Bristol Rovers at this stage last season.

The Generals already had 44-year-old former Jamaica international striker Barry Hayles at their disposal heading into the season but now Leese can also call upon defender Darren Purse.

The 39-year-old was an unused substitute when Cardiff lost the 2008 FA Cup final to Portsmouth and is fit to take his place at the heart of the Chesham defence having come through their 3-2 FA Trophy qualifying round victory over Leatherhead last Saturday unscathed.

Dave Pearce, who finished joint top-goalscorer for Chesham last season, will also be a man for Posh to keep their eye on after the midfielder bagged a brace in the Leatherhead win.
