Wycombe Wanderers’ latest injury problems could be at an end with key players back in contention this weekend.

Nathan Tyson and Scott Kashket could be added to Gareth Ainsworth’s squad for the tricky trip to Stevenage on Saturday, which is a real boost ahead of a tough run over the festive period, with four games in 10 days.

Tyson has been out for a couple of months with a knee ligament injury and Kashket has played no part this season as he battles back from a long standing problem.

However, both players have been seen by fans training with the squad on matchdays in recent weeks and Ainsworth commented that he is delighted he now has a few selection headaches to deal with.

He said: “We came through unscathed against Leatherhead and we have players coming back now.

“Tyson and Kashket are going to be in contention, hopefully for this weekend which is fantastic news.

“Nathan is probably a little bit ahead of Scott but with them both in full training it is not going to be long before we see them back out on the pitch.

“With Scott, especially, we have to be careful and make small steps and fitness will be an issue but I am looking forward to him coming back.

“Nathan as well, when fit, is above this level and a real weapon for us to have so I am really pleased with both of those and Dominic Gape is looking good as well so it could be a full quota barring Michael Harriman and it is a great time to have all those players back ahead of this run of games.”

With these two explosive players so close to playing, the form of the other forward this season has been very impressive too.

Ainsworth added: “I have got in a lot of strikers over the past two seasons and in pre-season I got in Tyson and Mackail-Smith to add to the ranks and we have been free-scoring.

“Nick Freeman has come into form and Ebere Eze too, it has been fantastic. There is not one person set in stone for one position apart from Bayo who as we know is tough to replicate.

“Because of this it has allowed me to not rush these guys back and we a fully-fit squad, we have something special here because I believe we can match anyone in this league.”

Another player due to return is Eze, who missed last week’s FA Cup due to not being allowed permission to play by parent club, QPR.

The 19-year-old has been a shining light since joining on loan with five goals in just 13 appearances, including scoring in his last three games at Adams Park, but the excellent form of Matt Bloomfield, Sam Saunders and Luke O’Nien means the manager has another poser to look at.

He said: “There is great competition for places and we all know that Ebs is a talent.

“The guys (Saunders, Bloomfield and O’Nien) were great without him at the weekend but we will assess ahead of the Stevenage match and pick the best team that we think can win this game and whoever will be out there will do a good job for us.”
