This season Posh have picked up 12 cautions and seen two players sent off, Jack Baldwin and Andrew Hughes.

Posh are joint third with local rivals Northampton in the current bad boys table. Charlton currently top the Fair Play League having collected just three cautions all season.

Hughes was dismissed in the last minute of Saturday’s (September 13) 2-2 home draw with Port Vale and will be suspended from this Saturday’s (September 20) League One trip to Sheffield United.

Jerome Binnom-Williams will be favourite to replace Hughes. Binnom-Williams is expected to play in today’s (September 13) Central League game between Posh and Southend.
