Hughes to re­turn and he might not be alone

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Posh will wel­come left-back An­drew Hughes back into the start­ing line-up when Wal­sall visit the ABAX Sta­dium for a League One fix­ture on Satur­day.

Hughes, a sum­mer sign­ing from New­port County, has im­pressed at the ABAX Sta­dium this sea­son, but missed last Satur­day’s de­feat at Sh­effield United to serve a one-match sus­pen­sion.

Hughes is ex­pected to re­place Jerome Bin­nom-Wil­liams who per­formed well in his place at Bra­mall Lane.

“It will be good to have An­drew back,” Posh boss Grant McCann stated. “He’s been a very con­sis­tent per­former.”

Cen­tral de­fender Ryan Tafa­zolli is also knock­ing on the door for a re­call after im­press­ing in a cou­ple of un­der 23 out­ings.

Tafa­zolii, a com­mand­ing de­fen­sive pres­ence, has not seen any League One ac­tion since pick­ing up an in­jury in the early stages of the open­ing day of the sea­son at Rochdale.

The fail­ure of striker Tom Ni­chols to score in any of his last six ap­pear­ances means his place is un­der threat from 17 year-old Deon Moore.

Sum­mer sign­ing from Bar­net, Matthew Stevens, is also push­ing for a call-up.

The 18 year-old trav­elled with the first-team squad to Sh­effield United last Satur­day with­out mak­ing the match day 18.

Posh are try­ing to off­load for­mer Spurs striker Shaquile Coulthirst.
