Sam Morsy suspended after a fifth yellow v Wobblers.

Good news for us. He's a massive player for them in midfield.

The coaches clearly need to have a word with him.

Wasn't he one of the ones you thought we should sign, imagine a midfield of him and Grant, nothing would get by alive

Imagine how many games they'd miss through suspension being in the same side? :D :D :D

Their loss. Our gain.
He shouldn't even be on the coach from Wigan. Let alone in the team or on the bench.
Very similar to Grant. He's the sort of player teams need on the field for every game.

One point would be a decent return from this match. Anything more would be very hard work and a result for the starry eyed optimists.

I agree one point would be good, however it is football, so there is still 3 points available, it ain't over till the fat lady sings :comeon:

Sam Morsy will probably be replaced by Max Power. I'm sure most Posh fans will remember him from his Tranmere days when Posh put 13 goals in 3 games passed them when he was a player there. Hopefully that will be a good omen for us.

Posh v Wigan

Read the Wigan official match preview here
Latics look for fourth consecutive victory when they travel to the ABAX Stadium.
Second meets third as Paul Cook’s Latics do battle with Grant McCann’s Peterborough United on Saturday. Both sides have lost just once in the league this season and Latics can regain top spot in Sky Bet League One should they win and Shrewsbury are beaten at home by Blackburn Rovers. Posh will climb back over Latics if they get the three points.
Cook will leave it late to see if Nick Powell can return after missing Tuesday’s victory over Northampton, his inclusion would be the only likely change for Latics, barring injuries.
They seem to have overlooked that Morsy is suspended.

ClubCall report here
Peterborough have a near fully-fit squad ahead of the visit of League One promotion rivals Wigan.

Only midfielder Callum Chettle (hamstring) is absent for Posh.

Junior Morias and Ricky Miller are in competition to partner Jack Marriott up front.
Wigan will be without midfielder Sam Morsy for the trip to London Road through suspension.

Morsy incurred a one-match ban after collecting his fifth booking of the season in the victory over Northampton in midweek.

His absence could pave the way for Max Power to start for the first time in the league since requesting a transfer over the summer.

Forward Nick Powell could return after he limped off against Bristol Rovers last weekend and was not risked on Tuesday.

Thanks for sharing that Stuie.
This from Tafazoli is encouraging as well.

Not looked forward to a game this much for a long time.

Let's see how much belief the players really have. Bring it on!
