Peterborough will welcome back influential midfielder Grant McCann for the visit of Swindon.

McCann has been away on international duty with Northern Ireland over the last week, but was serving a three-match ban anyway for his red card against Notts County at the end of September.

The 30-year-old is likely to come straight back into Gary Johnson's side, but he will be walking a disciplinary tightrope again having picked up four bookings.

Ryan Bennett is struggling with an illness and is unlikely to be well enough to play any part, but striker Dave Hibbert has shaken off the same bug after missing last week's defeat at Hartlepool.

James Wesolowski is still out as he battles with a knee injury but he is set to return to the fold next week.

Posh, who sit third in League One, will be keen to reverse a poor run of form, having lost two of their last three league games.

Swindon boss Danny Wilson must decide whether to stick or twist with his starting XI as he welcomes a handful of players back into the fold for the trip to Peterborough.

Wilson watched his side record a 2-1 West Country derby triumph over Bristol Rovers on Monday to end a run of back-to-back league defeats.

And ahead of the encounter at London Road, the Robins boss is boosted by the return of midfielder Paul Caddis and striker Thomas Dossevi from international duty.

Full-back Alan Sheehan is expected to be available after a hamstring problem along with fellow defender Callum Kennedy (ankle), while midfielder David Prutton completed his suspension and was back on the bench on Monday.

Joining him in the matchday 18 against Rovers was star striker Charlie Austin who also gained 20 minutes for the reserves on Tuesday, although he is not 100% ready to return from his dislocated shoulder and will be eased in on the bench if selected at all

That just leaves defender Lescinel Jean-Francois who is due to start training again after his hamstring problem but will not be considered for Saturday.
