Team News: Peterborough (A)

21 March 2019

Chris Powell has revealed a decision on Harry Lennon will be a last minute one to determine if he is fit enough to feature against Peterborough United this weekend.

The defender suffered a knock in the 1-0 defeat to AFC Wimbledon, and Powell says his fitness for the match is in the balance.

Here’s a full rundown on the team news ahead of the weekend.

On Harry Lennon…

He’s going to be 50/50 for the game.

I’ll give Harry until quarter to two on Saturday because he’s a player I’ve got a lot of time for and he’s a warrior.

We haven’t seen enough of him but in the games he’s played I’ve seen why we’ve missed him.

If it’s one game he has to miss to be available for the next seven I’ll take that.

On Stephen McLaughlin…

We’ve lost Stephen McLaughlin for a number of weeks to a calf injury. We didn’t think the knock would be as bad as it is so it’s a real shame.

I would envisage for the next two or three weeks he will be missing.

On Jason Demetriou…

We’re also missing Jason Demetriou as well to international duty so it’s a tough time for us at the minute, but we’ll soldier on.

Jason has the ability and experience and he didn’t want to go, and we were very close to keeping him, but he’s thier captain and we could face a sanction from UEFA [if he stayed] so we’ll have to get on with it.

I hope he gets through the two games, although I think he’ll only play in one, and he can be available next week.

On Stephen Humprhys…

He’s been at home because there’s not much he can do. Once he gets the thumbs up to start running then we can get him fit, and then it’s all about the mental aspect.

I don’t even look at players like that at the moment because they’re not available and it drives you mad if you think if only.
