Posh have bolstered their defensive ranks ahead of Barnsley clash.

Peterborough United have boosted their defensive ranks ahead of the Sky Bet League One fixture with Barnsley at the ABAX Stadium (7.45pm) with the signing of 26-year-old centre back Miles Addison on a short-term contract.

The former Derby County and AFC Bournemouth player can also operate in central midfield and has signed on an initial one-month deal. Addison was a free agent.

Addison will wear the number 35 shirt for Posh and goes straight into the squad for the clash with the Tykes.

Boss Graham Westley, who is without the services of suspended defensive duo Ricardo Almeida Santos and Jack Baldwin as well as injured pair Gabriel Zakuani and Shaun Brisley, was pleased to secure the signing of Addison.
