Posh entertain Colchester United at London Road on Thursday afternoon (2pm).

A youthful Peterborough United side will face Colchester United in the Premier League under 21 competition on Thursday afternoon at London Road (2pm).

Shaquille McDonald, Jaanai Gordon, Jevani Brown and Peter Grant are all expected to play while defender Michael Richens is also expected to be involved.

The rules of the competition stipulate you can play over age players in the competition, but with injuries and suspension in the first team squad, it looks likely that it will be a teenage starting XI that faces the U's.

Season ticket holders are admitted into the game free of charge (please ensure you bring Smartcards with you). Admission is £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. Turnstiles 9 and 10 in the North Stand will be open for the fixture.
