Paul Taylor: Set for home bow

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Peterborough United and Preston North End at London Road.

Peterborough will have an unchanged squad for the visit of unbeaten Preston.

Defenders Mark Little and Nathaniel Knight-Percival are still suspended while forward Lee Tomlin faces around a month out with the ankle injury he suffered during the Capital One Cup defeat at Sunderland.

Manager Darren Ferguson could opt to name an unchanged team following the 1-0 win at Rotherham last weekend. If he does, former Posh striker Paul Taylor will get his first run out at London Road since returning to the club on loan from Ipswich.

However, the likes of Kgosi Ntlhe, Shaun Brisley, Daniel Kearns, Joe Newell, Kane Ferdinand and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are options for Ferguson should he decide to make changes.

Boss Simon Grayson has no new injury or suspension concerns as he attempts to extend Preston's unbeaten start to the season into a third month at high-flying Peterborough.

Along with the division's leaders Leyton Orient, North End are one of two sides yet to lose in Sky Bet League One but that run will be tested at London Road, where Posh have lost just once since February.

The only injury absentee for Grayson's side is midfielder Jack King (broken foot), which gives the ex-Leeds manager a wealth of options once again.

Grayson has deployed an unchanged XI in each of his last three contests and, given Preston's current run of form, could choose the same line-up for a fourth consecutive game.
