Swindon hoping for Nathan Thompson boost

Swindon manager Luke Williams could receive an injury boost ahead of their Sky Bet League One game with Peterborough.

Captain Nathan Thompson has been sidelined since December 30 with a foot injury but Williams believes the defender has a "good chance" of returning this weekend.

Jonathan Obika, who missed last weekend's 2-1 win at Bolton due to a hamstring injury, remains a doubt and will be assessed before the fixture.

James Brophy is available after sitting out at Bolton due to suspension but fellow defender Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill (ankle) is still sidelined.

Peterborough manager Grant McCann is hopeful Dominic Ball will be available for their trip to the County Ground.

The 21-year-old defender joined Posh on loan from Rotherham until the end of the season on January 3 but is yet to make his debut due to a back problem.

Jermaine Anderson and Jack Baldwin will not feature as both remain sidelined with knee injuries.

Peterborough head into the game looking to bounce back after their five-match unbeaten league run end with a 5-1 defeat at Bury last weekend.
