Peterborough United striker Lee Tomlin will miss the next month of action with an ankle injury.

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson expects Lee Tomlin to miss the next month of the season with an ankle injury.

The 24-year-old, who picked up the knock in last week's League Cup defeat to Sunderland, has scored seven goals in 11 games this season.

"He'll be out for four weeks - perhaps longer. He's a young boy and we like to think he's a quick healer," Ferguson told reporters at a press conference.

"He'll be out for four to six weeks but we've got [Paul] Taylor for six weeks [on loan from Ipswich] and others we can use."

Tomlin had been widely linked with a move to Celtic in the summer.
