MIDFIELD maestro Andre Boucaud has been tipped for big things in League Two.

The enigmatic 20 year-old is set for a first-team starting place in the League Two opener against Chester at London Road on Saturday, providing he recovers from an ankle injury.

Posh boss Mark Wright confirmed that Boucaud would have started last weekend's friendly against Birmingham when the likely first choice XI played for the first hour of the game.

Wright said: "Andre is a very good player going forward with the ball at his feet. There are some issues with his defensive work, but we've been working on him and I think he's taking what we want from him on board.

"He suffered an ankle injury out of the blue in training last week when we were just doing some crossing and shooting which was a shame because he would have played against Birmingham.

"Andre is one of a few injury problems we have at the moment, but he is the most likely of them to be fit for the Chester match.

"He didn't play much in the first team last season, but he has ability and I expect him to be a big player this year."

Boucaud started just 15 first-team games last season, scoring one goal in a 4-0 win over Port Vale.
