Sam back in squad for Wycombe clash

Sam Hutchinson is back in the Wednesday squad for another crucial match in our promotion bid as we travel to face play-off chasing Wycombe tomorrow.

Hutchinson is fit to return while Darren Moore says he has a decision to make over Harlee Dean, who has been back in training after his calf injury.

Elsewhere on the injury front, Moore said today that Josh Windass could be back in contention to join the squad at Fleetwood in midweek but Dominic Iorfa is likely to be out for three to four weeks after getting injured in training.

We go into the Wycombe game knowing that victory would clinch our place in the play-offs, as well as continuing the possibility of us grabbing an automatic promotion place.

However, it is so close at the top of division one that defeat at Wycombe could also see us back out of the top six.

We sit in fourth place on 79 points from 43 games, ahead of Plymouth on goal difference and with a match in hand on them.

Wycombe are in sixth on 77 points from 44 played, with Sunderland in seventh with 77 points from 43 matches and then Oxford with 75 points from 44 games.

Leaders Wigan look all but promoted but who joins them in the second automatic place is still open … with our eight-match unbeaten run seeing ourselves one of those in with a chance.

Second-placed Rotherham, on 83 points from 43 games, are at home to Oxford tomorrow while MK Dons sit just behind the Millers on goal difference, having played 44 matches, and they entertain Morecambe.

The other games involving teams pushing for promotion tomorrow see Wigan hosting Plymouth and Sunderland at home to Cambridge.
