Peterborough’s George Boyd doubtful for FA Cup tie at Stevenage

Stevenage defender Ben Nugent is a doubt for his side’s FA Cup first-round tie with Peterborough on Saturday at the Lamex Stadium.

Nugent missed the League Two draw against Scunthorpe with a back injury sustained in a 1-0 win over Morecambe late last month that forced him off after 36 minutes.

Right-back Luther Wildin is manager Mark Sampson’s only confirmed absentee for the clash with League One Posh.

Wildin has been out through injury since limping out of a 1-1 draw at Port Vale on October 19.

Peterborough look set to be without George Boyd, which means the midfielder is poised to miss out on a return to the club where he started his career.

Boyd, who made 120 appearances for Stevenage in a four-and-a-half-year spell from August 2002 before joining Posh for the first time in January 2007, has been struggling with a knee issue.

Ferguson has cover in Alex Woodyard and Serhat Tasdemir, while 17-year-old academy graduate Harrison Burrows also comes into contention.

Aside from Boyd, Ferguson has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
