Accrington Stanley Vs Wycombe Wanderers, Sat 4 Sep 2010

Published Add your comment

Terry Gornell is poised to return to the Accrington side for the visit of Wycombe.

On-loan Tranmere striker Gornell was ineligible to face his parent club in the midweek Johnstone`s Paint trophy clash at Prenton Park under the conditions of the loan deal.

He watched from the stands as Stanley completed a penalty shoot-out victory but will be back in the starting XI on Saturday.

Fellow striker Craig Lindfield has been struggling with a knee injury and missed out on Tuesday. He will be handed a late fitness test.

Defender Sean Hessey is also an injury concern as he is struggling with a knock, while Charlie Barnett has also picked up a knock and faces a race against time to prove his fitness.

Wycombe will begin life without Matty Phillips when Gary Waddock takes his side up to the Recreation Ground.

The 19-year-old winger joined Premier League new boys Blackpool for a fee which could reach #700,000 this week to deprive the Chairboys of an attacking option.

Defender Alan Bennett will still be missing with a hamstring strain while midfielder Ian Westlake is a doubt after rolling his ankle in training.

Striker Stuart Beavon is in contention for a starting spot after recovering from a broken leg and scoring in a 3-1 reserve friendly win over Bournemouth last week.

Striker Ben Strevens will hope to keep his place despite missing an open goal and conceding a penalty in the 1-1 draw at Northampton last weekend.
