With the Easter weekend games upon us, Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has received a boost with the news that influential midfielder Luke O’Nien is likely to be back for the game with Notts County.

O’Nien has been in superb form for the Blues this season, contributing eight goals and putting in numerous man of the match displays for Wanderers, forming a brilliant trio in the middle with the likes of Dominic Gape, Matt Bloomfield and Marcus Bean over the course of the campaign.
Ainsworth also hoped he would have Sam Saunders and Anthony Stewart back for the final five games of the campaign as the Chairboys aim for promotion to League One.

The manager said: “We are hoping Luke is back for County which is good.

“Curtis Thompson has picked up a hamstring issue and he will be assessed but is also ineligible for the game with Notts County as it is his parent club.

“Other than that, we didn’t pick any new injuries up in the game against Port Vale so we are hoping to go up there with a good squad.

“Sam Saunders and Anthony Stewart are getting closer too.”

Last week saw the return of Michael Harriman to the matchday squad but Ainsworth warned that Harriman was still short of match fitness as he works his way back from a horrific broken leg sustained in early October.

Ainsworth added: “Obviously it was another week under Michael’s belt but it wasn’t planned for him to be on the bench.

“Nathan McGinley would have been in the squad but he was taken ill on the morning of the game.

“Harri is still short of match fitness but we wanted to give him the experience of being back amongst the squad and that was fantastic for him.

"I am really pleased to take a good quota of players up to Nottingham and am looking forward to what is going to be a huge match against them."
