There was a fear he’d broken a toe, but he has now been given the all-clear to resume training on Thursday.

Left-back Daniel Lafferty is also expected to return to training on Thursday after missing the Doncaster match with a hamstring injury. He will be needed as his replacement at the Keepmoat Stadium Tyler Denton was sent off and must now serve a one-match ban.

Lee Tomlin is also available for Saturday after serving his one-match ban at Doncaster.

“It’s good news about Joe as I’ve been impressed with him since I’ve been here,” Posh boss Darren Ferguson said. “I know we’ve been playing a midfield diamond, but Joe gives us good width and he’s been delivering some great crosses. Ivan Toney should have scored from one at Doncaster.

“Joe was in a lot of pain on Saturday and we thought he had broken a toe, but he should be fine for the weekend.”
