Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Peterborough United gaffer Darren Ferguson to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Jeando Fuchs (Groin Injury) misses out.
Team News: Cheltenham Town
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, the Cheltenham Town boss Wade Elliott has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash.
