Marcus Maddison a doubt for Peterborough clash with Rochdale

Peterborough midfielder Marcus Maddison is rated as 50-50 for the visit of struggling Rochdale.

The 24-year-old missed last weekend’s defeat by Plymouth because of an ankle problem and remains doubtful.

Right-back Liam Shephard can play after winning his appeal against a red card on Saturday but Steven Taylor is suspended after his sending-off in that game.

Ryan Tafazolli is likely to be his replacement if he can pass a fitness test on a hamstring injury which has kept him out of the last two matches.

Rochdale forward Stephen Humphrys is a doubt after lasting only the first 20 minutes of Tuesday’s 4-1 defeat to Wigan.

It is likely to force manager Keith Hill to make alterations having named an unchanged XI in midweek.

Steven Davies was his replacement against Latics but having not started a match since December 16 it is unlikely he will be Hill’s first choice from the off.

Longer-term absentees Andy Cannon (fractured cheekbone), Niall Canavan (ankle) and Keith Keane (groin) remain out.
