Paul Caddis remains sidelined due to illness.

Goalkeepers David Lucas and Phil Smith have been passed fit.

Player to watch: Charlie Austin

No contest!

The only probable absentee for United should be forward Aaron McLean who is in talks with Hull City.

In fairness Peterborough have several decent individual players but Mackail-Smith is likely to cause the Town defence the most mischief!
