WYCOMBE Wanderers star Fred Onyedinma made a welcome return to action in the 2-0 win at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

The attacking midfielder had been sidelined since October 5 when he sustained an injury during the 3-3 draw with Peterborough United.

The fan-favourite, who is at his third spell at the club, will now be looking to play against Tranmere Rovers this Saturday after a good performance in the win at Bolton.

He won the penalty that helped Wycombe to their first away win since November after being brought down by the keeper when he was through on goal.

Both his manager and teammates are delighted for him to be back amongst the squad heading into the final stages of the season.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth told the Bucks Free Press: “I’m really excited on what we can possibly finish on this season. I think with Fred being back, and the way we played on Saturday, was a big plus for Wycombe Wanderers.

“It’s lifted everyone and I’m not going to lie it lifted me as well.”

Teammate David Wheeler also emphasised how important it is for the team to have the attacker back from his lengthy injury.

The midfielder said: “It’s a massive deal. It gives us another option going forward and takes a bit of pressure of the lads who have been playing for most of the season.

“It gives us all a lift with the sort of player Fred is and it’s great for him, we’re chuffed for him.

“Seeing him do so much work in the training ground every day and getting a knee in the back from the physio, it can’t have been fun, so I think he deserves to be back.”

The midfielder, who joined the club on a permanent basis in July, will be hoping to make his 25th appearance of the season this weekend at home to Tranmere.
