Thompson sits out Robins' cup clash

PA Sport

Swindon will be without defender Nathan Thompson against Peterborough in the second leg of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy southern area final.

The Robins, who drew the first leg 2-2, were held to a 0-0 draw by Colchester on Friday night, a match which saw the right-back pick up his 10th booking of the campaign and he will now serve a two-match ban.

Striker Nile Ranger has scored twice against Posh this season but he is a doubt for the match with a hamstring injury that forced the former Newcastle man off just before half-time.

Left-back Jay McEveley misses out once more through suspension but Yaser Kasim is available again having served his two-match ban.

Peterborough's new loan signings Ben Nugent and Josh McQuoid could both make their full debuts.

Cardiff centre-half Nugent was an unused substitute in Friday night's draw against Walsall and Bournemouth striker McQuoid stepped off the bench in the second half.

Another new signng, defender Jack Baldwin, was also an unused substitute on Friday following his recent arrival from Hartlepool and could make his first appearance.

Peterborough have won only one of their last four matches in all competitions.
