What's causing my Peugeot 206 to misfire?

My 2003 Peugeot 206 1.4 diesel has developed a misfire. I took it to my local garage, but they have not been able to find any fault as the diagnostics machine was unable to establish a connection. Do you know what could be causing the misfire?

2nd report today. Three problem areas with this engine are injectors, injector seals and the Electronic Accelerator Module.
