We bring you the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday's League Two game at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).
Colin Cooper is set to be without Antony Sweeney for Saturday’s game against Wycombe Wanderers, but Steve Howard could return to the squad.
Sweeney is still stepping up his recovery from a calf injury and although he’s making good progress the weekend’s game will come too soon for him.
Howard is now back in training after missing Tuesday’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy victory with the cut under his left eye which he sustained in the game at Torquay.
Simon Walton got a kick on the calf during the midweek win but trained as normal today and should be in contention to face Wanderers.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth will once again be without defender Charles Dunne who serves the last of a three-game suspension this weekend.
Skipper Stuart Lewis is likely to return to the team after serving his own three-match ban, but striker Jon-Paul Pittman is still struggling with a back injury.
Summer signing Paris Cowan-Hall remains sidelined with a knee problem and Matt Bloomfield could again be among the substitutes after returning from a year out with a pelvic injury.
