Notts County Vs Peterborough United, Tue 8 Mar 2011

Published Add your comment

Jon Harley and Mike Edwards return to boost Notts County`s defensive options ahead of the visit of free-scoring Peterborough.

Both players served one-match suspensions as Paul Ince`s side were beaten 2-0 by Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Midfielder Ricky Ravenhill filled in at right-back at Brisbane Road so Ince will also hope to have Carl Regan available again after an ankle knock.

Niogo Demba-Nyren made his debut as a second-half substitute against the Os and could be set for a more prominent role.

However, fellow striker Febian Brandy could still have to wait for the chance to make his debut after getting a knock in training last week.

Last season`s top-scorer Lee Hughes remains a doubt due to a thigh problem.

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip.

Posh moved into fourth place in League One with a 3-0 win over Exeter at the weekend and the same XI could be unleashed on Paul Ince`s side.

However, forward Lee Tomlin returned from illness as a second-half substitute against the Grecians and will be hoping to come back into the side alongside in-form Craig Mackail-Smith.

Mackail-Smith scored his 25th goal of the season on Saturday and has nine in his last 10 games.

Midfielder Lee Frecklington has had a hernia operation and will be sidelined for at least a month while new signing Paul Taylor will not feature as he is not match fit.

Striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.
