Ivan Toney is expected to continue leading Peterborough’s forward line as they take on Stevenage in Tuesday night’s FA Cup first-round replay.
The 23-year-old striker picked up a sixth yellow card this term in the 1-0 League One defeat at Shrewsbury earlier this month and is suspended for the weekend’s league clash with Burton but looks likely to get boss Darren Ferguson’s nod in midweek.
Midfielder George Boyd, who sustained a knee injury during that last league match, remains sidelined against his former club.
Fellow midfield man Joe Ward (foot) and on-loan Leicester defender Josh Knight (illness) return to boost Ferguson’s options.
League Two strugglers Stevenage are set to be without a number of players at London Road due to injury.
Boro held Posh to a 1-1 draw at the Lamex Stadium in the initial tie but remain without left-back Luther Wildin, who has been sidelined since limping out of a 1-1 draw at Port Vale last month.
Mark Sampson also has concerns over striker Kurtis Guthrie, midfielder Dean Parrett and defender Kelland Watts, who are all set to miss out.
The trio sustained injuries during the November 9 draw and the game comes too soon as Boro look to end a run of three successive draws in all competitions to reach the second round.
