Posh suffer Burton blow
Peterborough defender Sagi Burton faces up to three months on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Colchester.

Burton, who was installed as the club's vice-captain over the summer, fell awkwardly after a challenge with Wayne Andrews just 15 minutes into the game.

"It is a massive blow for us to lose Sagi," said manager Barry Fry.

Burton, a former Crystal Palace player, joined Peterborough from Crewe, just under two years ago.
