Tun­ni­cliffe could be re­turn­ing to Old Traf­ford next week

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sports -

ON-LOAN Posh mid­fielder Ryan Tun­ni­cliffe could re­turn to Manch­ester United fol­low­ing the home Cham­pi­onship fix­ture with Birm­ing­ham on Mon­day.

Tun­ni­cliffe’s ini­tial loan spell ex­pires af­ter that match and, while Posh are keen to ex­tend the deal to the end of the sea­son, agree­ment with the player has not yet been reached.

Tun­ni­ciffe, who cel­e­brates his 19th birth­day to­day, missed the Box­ing Day win at Not­ting­ham For­est be­cause of a dead leg and is doubt­ful for the trip to Mid­dles­brough to­mor­row be­cause of ill­ness. He’s started just seven matches so far this sea­son.

Mid­fielder Lee Freck­ling­ton will be out of ac­tion for a month. He is booked in for a her­nia op­er­a­tion ontues­day.

Skip­per Grant Mc­cann has re­ceived a su­gar in­jec­tion in an at­tempt to ac­cel­er­ate his re­turn from a knee lig­a­ment in­jury, but Posh boss Dar­ren Ferguson still ex­pects to be with­out his mid­fielder for four more weeks.

Right-back Mark Lit­tle will re­sume train­ing with the first-team squad on Mon­day and could be avail­able for the FA Cup tie with Sun­der­land at Lon­don Road on Jan­uary 8.
