Manager Lee Clark has two main injury concerns for Huddersfield.
Scotland international defender Gary Naysmith missed the 2-0 win over Tranmere and a knee injury looks set to keep him on the sidelines.
Striker Danny Cadamarteri is likely to return to the squad after responding well to treatment on a groin problem.
Youngster Liam Ridehalgh picked up a foot injury at Prenton Park but Clark is hopeful that he will be fit to face the Posh.
Influential winger Anthony Pilkington (leg/ankle) and midfielder Damien Johnson (knee) will not feature again this season.
Peterborough ran out 4-2 winners when the sides met at London Road in August, but the Terriers gained revenge with a 3-2 home win in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
David Ball will keep his place as Peterborough travel to their promotion rivals.
The striker was handed just his third start for the club at Dagenham in midweek and repaid manager Darren Ferguson by scoring twice inside the opening eight minutes to secure a 2-0 win.
That means Lee Tomlin is likely to be on the bench again at the Galpharm Stadium, where a Posh win could see them leapfrog the Terriers into second spot.
Midfielder Lee Frecklington has had a hernia operation and will be sidelined for several more weeks, while striker Dave Hibbert is absent as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered in November.
Posh signed Rushden & Diamonds goalkeeper Joe Day for an undisclosed fee this week but he is unable to play until next season.
