Peterborough United Vs Leicester City, Sat 10 Apr 2010

Peterborough goalkeeper Joe Lewis should return as Gary Johnson takes charge for the first time against Leicester.

The England Under-21 international missed the 2-2 draw at Barnsley on Monday with a thigh injury but is expected to be fit enough to start against the Foxes as Posh start rebuilding for next season.

The point at Oakwell confirmed their relegation and Johnson has been appointed to lead them out of League One next season.

Midfielder Charlie Lee should also be back after a hamstring injury but Johnson is without a host of players.

Forward Reuben Reid has returned to West Brom at the end of his loan spell while fellow strikers Aaron Mclean (knee), Izale McLeod (knee) and Liam Dickinson (hamstring) are all out.

Winger Chris Whelpdale (ankle) and defender Mark Little (hamstring) are also out so Danny Mills and Romone McCrae will hope to be involved after being given their debuts by Jim Gannon last time out.

Lloyd Dyer will hope to return to the Leicester squad for the trip.

The winger missed the 4-0 home win over QPR on Monday with a knock sustained in the defeat at West Brom three days earlier. However, the best Dyer could hope for would be a place on the bench.

That is where Matt Oakley started the game against QPR but the midfielder will be pushing for a recall along with Nicky Adams, Yann Kermorgant, Robbie Neilson, Dany N`Guessan and James Vaughan.

Alex Bruce has returned to training after surgery on a groin injury but this game may come too soon for the Republic of Ireland defender, who is on loan from Championship rivals Ipswich, to be involved.
