Wycombe manager Gary Waddock will be without the services of midfielder Gareth Ainsworth.

Ainsworth serves the last of a three-game ban for the home clash against the Cumbrians and will miss out.

Waddock does however have the luxury of no new injury or suspension worries as his side look to bounce back from the 4-3 defeat they suffered against Stockport last time out.

Striker Matt Harrold, who played 45 minutes against County, is in line to start having recovered from illness, but Leon Johnson (knee) and Ian Westlake (ankle) are still sidelined.

Midfielder Matt Bloomfield and defender Adam Hinshelwood are in contention to at least make the bench having both played two reserve games on the way back from knee injuries.

Carlisle are hoping to have midfielder Marc Bridge-Wilkinson available.

Bridge-Wilkinson has recovered from the bruised toe he suffered in training and featured in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Sunderland's training facility on Thursday afternoon.

He will be included in Greg Abbott's squad as long as he does not suffer any adverse reaction to that run-out.

Joe Anyinsah underwent hernia surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be out for three to six weeks. But fellow forward Ben Marshall is available once again after extending his loan from Stoke until the end of the season.

Adam Collin is set to continue in goal in the absence of regular number one Lenny Pidgeley (broken hand).

Andy Cook (foot), Gavin Rothery (hernia) and David Raven (hip) remain on the sidelines but Matt Robson should be able to feature following a second injection in his troublesome right heel.
