Trio return for Posh clash

Darren Pratley and Jason Pearce are back from suspension for tomorrow's visit to Peterborough, while Andrew Shinnie returns from a spell injured:

Shinnie has not been able to train much because of waterlogged pitches, so he is likely to be on bench warming duties which is a shame given his creativity.

I'm not sure what I would do about the war horses Pearce and Pratley.   Pearce has looked a bit suspect in recent games and Oshilaja is on song.   Pratley gives his all, even if that sometimes lands him in trouble.  

He is not a cultured player, but he is a battler and that may be needed against the Posh.   I agree with the fan who tweeted that has more to offer as a ball winning midfielder than a centre back.  Others argue that age is catching up with him which has been the case for some time but he could do 60 minutes before being replaced by Shinnie.

Maddison will not be available to return to his former club.   The latest Voice of the Valley suggests that he was not a good investment and when he scored his only goal he was giving evils to Lee Bowyer rather than celebrating.   They may not have exchanged Christmas cards.

Rather unusually it is a 6.30 pm kick off tomorrow, something I almost missed.
