Two key Peterborough United defenders suffer injury concerns
Two key Peterborough United defenders have been hit with injury concerns.
Former club captain Mark Beevers was named in the original line-up but was then forced to pull out after complaining of a hamstring injury.
He was keen to test it out but Ferguson decided that starting him would be too much of a risk.
He was replaced by Josh Knight, who suffered a torrid game at the hands of flying wingback Cody Drameh and was substituted at halftime.

Beevers felt the pain in the same hamstring he damaged in the home draw against Cardiff in August, sidelining him for two months.
Ferguson said: “Mark felt his hamstring, the same one he’d done previously this season againt Cardiff.
“He wanted to give it a go but there was no way I could risk it. He could feel it when he was going for it 100 percent and the risk to play him.
“If I play him, he could be out for six weeks and I have to make a substitution early.”
