Peterborough manager Gary Johnson could be without goalkeeper Joe Lewis for the visit of play-off chasing Blackpool.

Captain Lewis had a fine game despite his side's 6-0 thrashing at Reading last weekend and almost single-handedly prevented the Royals from racking up double figures.

However he is struggling with a hip injury so James McKeown is on standby to make a rare start.

Left-back Scott Griffiths is also a doubt with a stomach injury but on-loan Brighton striker Liam Dickinson should be back after missing three games with a hamstring injury.

Strikers Aaron Mclean (knee) and Izale McLeod (knee) are out along with winger Chris Whelpdale (ankle), while defender Gabriel Zakuani will miss the rest of the season after injuring his groin at Reading.

Midfielders Lee Frecklington (hamstring) and Sergio Torres (ankle) are also on the sidelines for Posh who have already been relegated.

Blackpool may hand late fitness tests to Charlie Adam and Ben Burgess.

Midfielder Adam has been struggling with an ankle problem but should be okay to play, while striker Burgess (knee), who missed last weekend's 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest, is rated as 50/50 for the clash at London Road.

Neal Eardley (hamstring) could return to the squad after building up his fitness in a reserve game against Accrington on Wednesday, but Stephen McPhee (knee) remains on the sidelines.

Hameur Bouazza is receiving treatment abroad on his groin problem and will be unavailable for selection.

With just two games remaining, the Seasiders are two points adrift of sixth-placed Swansea.
