More injury concerns for Derby County ahead of 'Super Sunday' in League One, while Posh Under 21s benefit from trialist presence again
A draw for Derby would leave Posh requiring a three-goal win at Barnsley in their final match. If Derby lose a Posh win at Oakwell would mean Darren Ferguson’s side would earn a two-legged play-off semi-final tie against Sheffield Wednesday.
And Derby boss Paul Warne had some worrying news at a Friday press conference.
Warne told the Derby Telegraph: "I do have a couple who have missed training, but hopefully they will be available to train tomorrow.
"One I expect to be available for Sunday, but I am not sure about the other.
"But when physios give me bad news they always give it a coating of sugar. I hope for both of them to be available but at this moment in time I am dubious."
Definitely out for Derby are former Posh defender James Chester (calf) and Tony Springett (shin/ankle) while Liam Thompson is back from a loan at Scunthorpe, but has a hip flexor injury.
Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has refused to discuss rumours star forward Lee Gregory will miss the game against Derby because of a facial injury.
Posh Under 21s won for the third straight time in the Professional Development League as a goal from an unnamed trialist secured a 1-0 win at Crewe on Friday.
Posh fielded four trialists in the game.
