Can Grant McCann's men make it five league wins from five?

Peterborough United travel to Doncaster Rovers in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm) and come face to face with former manager Darren Ferguson and a number of ex-Posh players as they look to make it five league wins from five.

After last weekend’s 4-1 win over local rivals Northampton Town, Posh sit top of the table with maximum points but Doncaster will provide a tough test for Grant McCann’s men following promotion from League Two last term.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are still without the services of striker Ricky Miller who serves the final match of his six (seven) game suspension. Jermaine Anderson is back in the squad after a long term injury but Callum Chettle is still sidelined with a muscle strain.

Doncaster Rovers acted swiftly to sign left back Harry Toffolo on loan after discovering Danny Andrew would be ruled out for the season through injury. Yesterday’s surprisingly busy Deadline Day also saw Harry Middleton leave to join Port Vale on a permanent basis. While Jordan Houghton’s return from Chelsea was officially confirmed - that was overshadowed by the tale of the two left backs.

MCCANN QUOTES

“It will be another tough game for us, Doncaster are a good side and I am sure it will be a decent game of football. It will be a bit strange coming up against Darren Ferguson but I have the greatest respect for him, I played my best football under him in my playing career and he has achieved a lot in the game.

“I know that for the second successive away game we are going to be backed by over 1,000 fans and that is fantastic and really appreciated by the group. We are looking forward to the game.”

Posh pick up a point on the road at Doncaster Rovers.

Peterborough United made it five league games unbeaten with a fighting point at Doncaster Rovers with skipper Jack Baldwin leading from the front with a fine performance at the heart of the three man defence

After a bright Doncaster start, it was the hosts who had the first effort of the game, Andy Butler heading a corner kick over the bar. From the resulting goal kick, Posh put themselves in trouble as Jack Baldwin miss-controlled, John Marquis then seeing his shot parried clear by goalkeeper Jonathan Bond.

Marcus Maddison and Jack Marriott both saw shots blocked, the latter squeezed out by Joe Wright after an excellent pass from Michael Doughty. Niall Mason fired wide from the edge of the box after good pace and power from Matty Blair down the right.

On 25 minutes, Posh came close to the breakthrough as Maddison, fresh from signing his new deal, cracked the bar with a superb curling effort. Maddison then fired wide moments later after he was picked out by Gwion Edwards.

Maddison saw a right-footed effort deflect inches wide of the near post while Bond was called upon to push a near-post effort wide from the lively May. Grant was cautioned on 35 minutes for a foul by referee Mr Salisbury.

Edwards was next to test Lawlor after cutting inside onto his right-foot, the keeper doing well to get a bit of distance on his parry. Marriott forced his way into the box on 38 minutes but his crisp low strike was well gathered by Lawlor.

Taylor was cautioned by Mr Salisbury for a nothing challenge on May who made the most of it in front of the dugout. One minute of added time was signalled by the fourth official but nothing occurred within it.

Doughty fired over on 55 minutes from the edge of the box after a well-worked Posh move involving Marriott and Maddison. Posh made their first change around the hour mark with Idris Kanu replacing Morias. Andrew Hughes then replaced Da Silva Lopes on 71 minutes with Edwards moving across to right wing back.

Whiteman fired wide from distance moments later as Doncaster found space in midfield. Taylor saw a powerful header well held by Lawlor from a Maddison corner as the game became stretched. Maddison sent a 30-yard curler wide of the target on 87 minutes, ambitious at best.

Doncaster: Lawlor, Mason (sub Houghton 58min), Wright, Butler, Garratt, Blair, Whiteman, Rowe, Coppinger (sub Mandeville 58min), Marquis, May (sub Williams 71min). Unused subs: Marosi, Alcock, Houghton, Toffolo, Khemis, Mandeville.
