Scott Brown is expected to overcome a knock and take his place in goal for Cheltenham`s home clash against Wycombe.

The keeper ended Tuesday`s 4-0 victory over Bradford nursing the minor problem but, having rested on Wednesday, returned to training on Thursday.

Midfielder Dave Bird managed to make a 20-minute cameo at Whaddon Road having been struck down with illness leading up to the encounter but he has now recovered fully and has also returned to training ahead of the New Year`s Day fixture.

Winger Josh Low remains the only absentee as he recovers from his hamstring injury.

Town climbed into the play-off places with Tuesday`s triumph but know they will be in for a much sterner test when fifth-placed Wanderers come to town, although victory would move the Gloucestershire club to within a point of their promotion rivals.

Wycombe will have midfielder Lewis Montrose available.

The central midfielder returns from a one-game suspension but may have to sit out as Stuart Lewis is expected to continue his partnership with Matt Bloomfield.

Striker Jon-Paul Pittman continues his recovery from a ruptured knee tendon which is expected to keep him out until early in the new year.

Winger Josh Parker (foot) remains the only other long-term injury concern and the midfielder will not feature for at least six weeks.

Centre-half Chris Westwood will come up against one of his former clubs while Cheltenham could have former Adams Park loanee Marlon Pack in their side.

The Chairboys have won their last three games in all competitions.
