Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has been boosted by the news that key players are set to return for the clash against Peterborough at Adams Park on Saturday.

Joe Jacobson and Nick Freeman are in contention for what should be a cracking match against Posh.

Rolando Aarons and Curtis Thompson are also back in the fold after spells on the sideline and the Blues boss is awaiting news on Matt Bloomfield, who has suffered a series of sickening head injuries in recent games.

Ainsworth said: "We are hoping to have a full squad to choose from, barring Paul Smyth, who is very close and he should be back for the Sunderland game (October 19), which will be great.

"We have had a good run and Blooms will have to be looked at with his head knocks and be assessed.

"Jacobson and Freeman are hopefully both in contention for Saturday, which will be great, so hopefully a full squad to choose from barring Paul and selection problems because it is such a strong squad at the moment."

Peterborough promise to provide the Chairboys with a stern test and Ainsworth is looking forward to what should be an exciting clash against Darren Ferguson's side.

He added: "They have three players who have scored all 23 league goals for them, bar one, and that is Maddison, Eisa and Toney.

"We are well aware of the threat they have got from those players and those three are a cracking trio.

"They are Championship quality and we are going to have to be at our best to firstly, keep solid, and secondly, get something from the game as it is a real, real test.

"I think Peterborough are one of the best teams in our league and it will be a really tough challenge on Saturday."
