Posh entertain Port Vale at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday.

Peterborough United face Port Vale at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday (3pm) knowing that a victory could take Grant McCann's men into the automatic promotion places.

Posh currently occupy the final play-off spot following the first round of fixtures in Sky Bet League One, one place ahead of Saturday's opponents and two points behind Bradford City in second place.

McCann has enjoyed an eventful start to life in management, with plenty of goals scored; Tom Nichols, Gwion Edwards and Marcus Maddison have scored 11 between them in the opening weeks of the campaign.

The Posh boss welcomes back Hayden White from injury and Michael Smith from international duty for the fixture with the Valiants who signed an astonishing 17 players during the summer as well as changing their manager.
