Team News:

Joe Martin (ankle) trained with the first team on Monday but it awaits to be seen if the fixture has come too soon for the left back.

Josh Pritchard (calf) is definitely out of contention after hobbling off during Saturday’s win over Sheffield United. Amine Linganzi (hamstring) remains highly doubtful and is more likely to play in a development fixture on Wednesday.

Aaron Morris (hamstring) is another week away from being considered for first team action. Josh Staunton will also sit out.

As for the Posh striker Kyle Vassell (ankle) will miss the game while Jon Taylor and goalkeeper Ben Alnwick remain sidelined.

Gabriel Zaukani has returned from the African Cup of Nations but the game has come too soon for him to feature.

Manager Comments:

Justin Edinburgh will be in the dugout for the first time on Tuesday evening after watching from the stands at the weekend, and believes the visitors are more than capable of getting a result.

Speaking to the club website he said: “We will respect the opposition but we want to concentrate on ourselves, look at our own form and performances which have been very good of late.”

Darren Ferguson said: "The positivity is steadily coming back and we need to deliver the sort of results that makes that continue.”

Previous Meetings:

The teams last met in September 2014 when a late penalty from striker Cody McDonald earned Peter Taylor’s side a 2-1 win at MEMS Priestfield Stadium.

The last win on the road took place in November 1996 when a second half strike from Iffy Onuora clinched all three points for the Gills.

In total the clubs have met on 41 occasions. Peterborough edge the head to head stats with 13 wins to Gills 11 – the other 17 matches have been draws.
