Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has provided an injury update on Nick Freeman and Anthony Stewart.

Freeman, who is back in the frame following his loan spell at Leyton Orient last season, picked up an injury in Wanderers’ 1-0 win over Lincoln City on August 21, whilst Stewart, who has played five games this campaign, missed the defeat to Sunderland on August 28.

He said: “We’ll have Thursday and Friday training, then have a weekend off which is rare, but we are preparing for Oxford which will be a tasty derby.

“He [Stewart] picked up a slight injury in the Stevenage cup game, and with Ryan Tafazolli fit, it was a no-risk policy on Anthony.

“We’ve got him, Tafazolli, Jack Wakley and Chris Forino as our recognized centre-halves.

“I thought Chris did really well tonight [August 31], Jack is going to be a good player, JJ [Joe Jacobson] probably I now see as a centre-back and Jack Grimmer can fill in there.

“That position is crucial for us going forward but I am pleased with where we are.

“Getting the players fit for that game is important.”

On Freeman, the boss added: “No time limit has been set on Nick yet.

“It’s a knee injury that will need to be looked at and we wish him all the best, but there is no time limit yet.”
