The Posh boss has brought back midfielder Michael Doughty and Ryan Tafazolli who are both fully recovered from injury, with the side set to shape up in a 3-5-2 formation.

Posh are facing a Shrewsbury side who remain unbeaten after 15 matches this season and top League One.

The Shrews’ top scorer Stefan Payne remains on the bench, but boss Paul Hirst, who took over a year ago with his side bottom of the division, makes two changes.
