Peterborough Preview

5 October 2012

The Reds travel to Peterborough this weekend on the back of an encouraging performance against Blackburn on Wednesday night.

Although Sean O'Driscoll's men couldn't secure their first win in over a month, the display was a marked improvement on recent outings.

Bottom-of-the-table Peterborough endured a dreadful start to the season, losing their first seven games, but they will be confident of a win tomorrow after securing six points from their last two matches.

Sean O'Driscoll will welcome back Simon Cox and Adlene Guedioura, who have served their bans, although Dexter Blackstock will be missing for another two matches.

Doubts remain over the fitness of Sam Hutchinson, while Marcus Tudgay continues his recovery from a double hernia operation.

Peterborough have a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Forest - 19th
Peterborough - 18th

Emile Sinclair

The striker began his career on the youth books at Bradford City but was deemed not to be good enough and released in 2006.

The Reds stepped in to sign him and he made his debut a year later - at Chester City in the League Cup, where he scored the winning penalty in the shootout.

His one-and-only goal for Forest came in their 4-0 home win over Gillingham in September 2007.

He had spells on loan at Brentford, Mansfield and Macclesfield before his release from The City Ground opened the door for a permanent move to Moss Rose.

And it was in Cheshire that he made a name for himself, scoring thirteen goals and attracting the interest of our opponents, Peterborough, where he moved for an undisclosed fee last summer.

He has scored 13 goals for the club, including a hat-trick in his sideís win at Hull last Saturday.
