Posh host league leaders Leyton Orient at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain league leaders Leyton Orient at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm) knowing that a victory over the O's will bring them level on points with their visitors.

Darren Ferguson's men currently lie third in the table after suffering just their second defeat of the campaign last weekend at the hands of Colchester United.

Posh are without the services of the suspended Lee Tomlin, while midfielder Daniel Kearns has been ruled out through injury.

There is good news on the fitness of full-back Mark Little, who has recovered from a shoulder injury and should start.

Former Posh striker Shaun Batt is pushing for a start for the O's, but Russell Slade is unlikely to tinker with his strike-force of David Mooney and Kevin Lisbie.

Boss Ferguson knows Orient will pose a big threat: 'Their front four are very talented. The two strikers are in good form and have scored a lot of goals, while the two wingers are very forward thinking players, so I expect they will give it a good go.

'It is a big game, we are playing the league leaders and I am sure it will be a big crowd. I have said many times, a sign of a good side is when you do not lose two games in a row and we need to bounce back.'

Tickets sales for the game are extremely good, so supporters are advised to purchase tickets in advance for the game with certain areas of the stadium close to selling out.

Fans can purchase tickets at www.theposhtickets.com, via the 24-hour hotline 0844 847 1934 and in person at the Box Office.

Ahead of the game, there will be a one-minute silence in memory of those who have lost their lives fighting for the country.

Posh will also be inducting former defender Noel Luke into the club's Hall of Fame ahead of kick-off.
