Posh boss waiting on Whelpdale

18 September 2009 11:38
Whelpdale returned from a lengthy absence with a groin injury during last Saturday's 1-1 draw at QPR but came off in the draw at Leicester on Tuesday night with a head injury.

Ferguson is confident he will be fit but Shaun Batt is ready to replace him if necessary after scoring twice for the reserves on Wednesday.

Forward Ben Wright is fit again after an ankle problem but he will have to make do with a place on the bench at best as Ferguson's first-choice strike partnership of Aaron Mclean and Craig Mackail-Smith continue up front.

Utility man Charlie Lee remains sidelined with the ankle injury he picked up in training last week and Sergio Torres has joined Lincoln on loan.

Fringe players Danny Mills and Danny Blanchett have also joined Torquay and Hereford on loan as Posh look to pick up a belated first win of the season.
