Match Preview – Peterboro vs Coventry

Last Updated: 15/03/19 10:28am

Peterborough defender Rhys Bennett is available for Saturday’s Sky Bet League One home clash with Coventry.

Bennett was set to be suspended having been sent off in the 1-0 loss at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday, but Posh on Thursday announced they had won their appeal against the red card.

Midfielder Lee Tomlin is a doubt after missing training because of illness. Siriki Dembele (knee) and Josh Knight (ankle) are making good progress in their recoveries, but neither will be involved this weekend.

Coventry boss Mark Robins can call upon Bright Enobakhare again with the forward having served a one-game ban. Liam Kelly is another player who missed Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Fleetwood – due to the M1 being closed down, Robins has said.

It remains to be seen if there is any involvement for Jordan Willis, who sat out the Fleetwood match due to a knock sustained against Burton four days earlier, or Conor Chaplin, absent for the last four games thanks to an ankle problem. Max Biamou and Jodi Jones (both knee) remain sidelined.
