Rowe's fitness in balanceTommy Rowe is rated 50/50 for Peterborough's home clash with Huddersfield.Manager Darren Ferguson will wait until the last minute to make a final decision as to whether to include the 24-year-old, who has missed training to receive treatment for an ankle injury.Peter Grant and Dave Hibbert are Ferguson's only other two absentees ahead of the game against Simon Grayson's men.Grant will undergo an operation for a knee injury this week, and is expected to spend an extended spell on the sidelines.Hibbert, meanwhile, is closing in on a first-team return after almost two years out of the game with a serious knee injury.Saido Berahino, Lee Tomlin, and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are all poised for a place in Ferguson's starting line-up, should the Posh manager opt to make changes, as the npower Championship's bottom-placed side seek to record their first home league win of the season.Adam Hammill is back in contention for Huddersfield following injury.On-loan winger Hammill has recovered from a knee injury, but was ineligible to face parent club Wolves on Saturday as Huddersfield climbed to third with a 2-1 win.Defender Joel Lynch is expected to be named among the substitutes again after his run in the first team was recently curtailed by a three-game ban followed by a knee injury.The Wales international appeared for the final 10 minutes at the weekend and may play a bigger role at Peterborough.Striker Jermaine Beckford, who has scored twice in three games since joining back up with former Leeds boss Simon Grayson on loan from Leicester, is expected to resume his partnership with James Vaughan.Grayson's side could go top of the table with victory if other results go their way.
