The Posh will be keen to bounce back from two defeats on the trot, but face a tricky test against a side desperate to secure three points after failing to win any of their five opening fixtures of the new league season.
Meanwhile, Peterborough midfielder Oliver Norburn has been discussing breaking into the Grenada national team, and said: “I enjoyed the football. There’s no way I’m ever playing international football if Grenada hadn’t called me up.
“The Shrewsbury captain Aaron Pierre is the captain of the side and after having a conversation with him I got the call. I qualify through my mother’s father.
“The football was eye-opening. You don’t look at the likes of Qatar and think they are a top footballing nation, but they were very good. They moved the ball well and they were very technically gifted.
“I’m open to playing for Grenada again, but my club must come first now. If there’s a clash I’ll be staying with Peterborough. Obviously the training with Grenada wasn’t as intense as with a club side so I was a little behind the others when I came back and I didn’t play much in pre-season.
“So to get thrown straight into the side when I came to Peterborough was very pleasing as it showed the manager’s faith in men.
