Centre-back Lewis Cass is expected to replace Connor Hall, who left the club to join Colchester. Brad Walker is another January departure and Tom Conlon might deserve a callback.
Ollie Norburn has been absent for a long time and is unlikely to play again this month. Goalkeeper Will Norris is expected to start after being loaned out by Burnley and Nathanael Ogbeta, who is also signed, is also likely to be involved.
Darren Ferguson begins his fourth spell as Peterborough manager with a trip to Port Vale and his temporary return to the dugout could see Posh clinching a long overdue away win.
Under Ferguson, who first took charge of London Road’s squad in 2007, these may not be new ideas, but it may not take much change to put Peterborough back in the playoffs.
Posh has won just one of his last seven games and deducted a whopping 20 points from automatic promotion spots, costing Grant McCann his job. Peterborough’s performances have been far better than their results, however, and things could come together at Vale Park.
Ferguson’s men are without a win in four away games in the third tier, but they won the shot count 12-8 as they drew 1-1 at Charlton last time out.
And they did well while losing by an odd goal at Ipswich. Posh sent off Ronnie Edwards when he lost 1-0 at Bristol Rovers and they scored twice, winning the shot count 13-5 but somehow managing to lose 3-2 at Exeter.
That paints a picture of misfortune and after Peterborough’s recent effort they appear to have been underestimated at 6-4 in the away win bid.
Port Vale are enjoying an excellent return to League One and look set to make the playoffs themselves.
However, the Valiants have lost to Ipswich, Sheffield Wednesday and Portsmouth at Vale Park this season and another bigger Third Division side could add their name to the list.
Vale won 3-1 last time out at Forest Green, but it wasn’t nearly as comfortable as the score line would suggest. Rovers led the fight until the 86th minute before Vale’s three late goals gave them the win over the bottom of the table.
Darrell Clarke’s men have also been replaced by Wednesday and Bristol Rovers in recent weeks and it looks like they will fall short against a potential resurgent Peterborough side.
Port Vale have won just five of their last 11 games.
