Peterborough defensive duo Ryan Tafazolli andBen White are doubtful for the visit of promotion-chasing Sunderland on Easter Monday.

Tafazolli suffered a knee problem in the warm-up of Posh’s last game, whileloanee White is struggling with an ankle injury.

BossDarren Ferguson has confirmed he will make changes to freshen up his side following Friday’s 1-1 draw at Fleetwood, which left Posh four points off the play-off places.

Callum Cooke,George Cooper andMatt Godden could all come into the starting XI.

Sunderland boss Jack Ross has a decision to make with his defence.

Ross recalledAlim Ozturk and Jimmy Dunne against Doncaster on Friday night and, six days after shipping five goals at home to Coventry, was rewarded with a clean sheet.

It was Ozturk’s first league start since September and Ross will check on the 26-year-old after admitting he had started to tire in the closing stages, withTom Flanagan and Jack Baldwin both waiting for a quick return to the side.

Ross will check for any other niggles picked up on Friday ahead of the trip to London Road.
