Football - Posh without eight

Peterborough will be without eight senior players when Tranmere visit London Road in the FA Cup.

PA Sport Report

Right-back Mark Little suffered a hamstring injury during last weekend's league win over Wolves and joins fellow defenders Gaby Zakuani (Achilles) and Craig Alcock (calf), midfielders Danny Kearns (hip), Joe Newell (thigh) and Kane Ferdinand, striker Kyle Vassell and captain Tommy Rowe (knee) on the sidelines.

Ferdinand and Vassell are both cup-tied having already featured in the competition for Northampton and Bishop's Stortford respectively.

However, on-loan QPR midfielder Hogan Ephraim will be available for the second round tie after extending his stay with Darren Ferguson's men until the end of January.
