Posh star Marcus Maddison starts at Fleetwood.

In-form centre-back Ryan Tafazolli dropped out of the starting line-up after the pre-match warm-up because of a knee injury. Josh Knight replaces him with Darren Lyon coming onto the substitutes bench.

Winger Joe Ward is absent from the matchday squad again for personal reasons.

Posh need to pick up three points from the trip to Highbury to keep the pressure on play-off rivals Doncaster who have a tough game at Sunderland later in the day (5.15pm).
