Peterborough manager Gary Johnson will be boosted by the return of two loan players for the visit of Rochdale.

Marcus Williams and Adam Clayton missed the FA Cup win at Bury last month due to the terms of their moves from Reading and Leeds but can face Dale in the League One clash.

A third loanee, Lewin Nyatanaga, has returned to Bristol City but Johnson will have full-back Nathan Ofori-Twumasi available after his groin injury.

Forward Dave Hibbert remains a long-term absentee after he dislocated his knee after coming off the bench during the 4-1 FA Cup first-round replay win over Stockport while midfielder Lee Frecklington is still sidelined with ankle ligament damage.

Captain Grant McCann and wing-back Tommy Rowe both came through the 90 minutes at Bury last time out after calf and groin strains and are fine to play.

Rochdale have been boosted ahead of the trip to Peterborough after extending Luke Daniels' loan spell for another seven days.

The West Brom goalkeeper signed last week on an emergency seven-day loan which has now been extended following injuries to Josh Lillis (hamstring) and Matty Edwards (finger).

Daniels now looks set to make his Dale debut at London Road and manager Keith Hill has no other suspension or injury problems.

The match looks set to beat the big freeze and go ahead as scheduled.

Spotland boss Hill said: "We need to be switched on and take it that the game is on.

"We cannot be caught behind the wicket, we have to be mentally, tactically and physically prepared to face Peterborough."
