With Guy Branston and Adam Newton both suspended, Wales international Craig Morgan makes his first start. Posh keep their ninth clean-sheet in 11 away matches at struggling Rochdale to remain sixth in the league, but the performance is far from pretty. Trevor Benjamin looks lost playing wide on the left. Aaron Mclean scores his fifth goal in 7 games for the Posh, but also picks up a yellow card, ruling him out of Saturday's game at home to Mark Wright's Chester City.
