Posh at full strength for O's clash

Peterborough will be at full strength for the home leg of their play-off semi-final against Leyton Orient.


Midfielder Danny Swanson made his return from an ankle injury as a half-time substitute last weekend, meaning Posh boss Darren Ferguson has everyone fit and available for Saturday's clash.


Ferguson made eight changes for the final game of the season against Port Vale so the likes of 32-goal striker Britt Assombalonga, defenders Kgosi Ntlhe, Mark Little and Michael Bostwick, midfielders Tommy Rowe and Jack Payne and forwards Nicky Ajose and Conor Washington will all come back into contention for starting places.


It remains to be seen whether on-loan Cardiff centre-back Ben Nugent will start against Orient as he will return to his parent club after Saturday's game and will not be available for the second leg of the tie at Brisbane Road on Tuesday.


Leyton Orient boss Russell Slade also hopes to have a fully-fit squad available for the first leg tie.


Left-back Scott Cuthbert missed Saturday's 2-0 win at MK Dons with a hip injury but he was back training with the rest of the squad on Thursday and will be assessed.





Fellow defenders Mathieu Baudry (knee) and Elliot Omozusi (hip) shook of their recent knocks to return at the weekend.





On-loan Burnley midfielder Marvin Bartley is also fit after a long-term hamstring injury and hopes to be celebrating two promotions this season.
