The attacking midfielder, who netted a hat-trick against AFC Wimbledon last weekend, missed training on Thursday after sustaining a knock in the build-up to the Carabao Cup clash at Burnley.

Speaking ahead of the trip to the Posh, Ross said: “All those that missed out at Burnley were rested, with the exception of Chris who had a little bit of a knock.

“We’ll see how they both react, to training and not training, over the course of this evening and then tomorrow morning.”
