Grant McCann expected to name unchanged side as Peterborough chase Chelsea tie

Grant McCann is expected to name an unchanged side as Peterborough aim to earn a lucrative FA Cup third-round trip to Chelsea.

Striker Lee Angol completes his three-game ban for his red card in the original tie, when Louis Laing completed Notts County's comeback in injury time.

Forward Marcus Maddison, who has not featured since that game, remains sidelined with an ankle injury while on-loan midfielder George Moncur is ineligible.

Posh have won five of their last six Sky Bet League One games to sit sixth in the table, 38 places above the Magpies on the football pyramid.

Notts County captain Michael O'Connor will sit out the second game of his three-match suspension after he was red-carded against Wycombe earlier this month.

Magpies midfielder Curtis Thompson could keep his place, though, after making his first appearance of the season in the 2-1 defeat to Colchester over the weekend.

County have endured a run of six successive Sky Bet League Two defeats and manager John Sheridan will also be ruing the absence of Stanley Aborah and Alex Rodman for the trip to London Road.

Midfielder Aborah has not featured since the first-round tie at Boreham Wood due to a number of niggling injuries while winger Rodman is also suffering from a series of minor setbacks.
