Wycombe striker Jon-Paul Pittman is a doubt to face Stockport.

Pittman sustained an injury in a run-out for the reserves in midweek which has now been diagnosed as a strained muscle in his back.

Fellow forward Ben Strevens missed the 3-0 win at Morecambe last weekend with a throat infection but is fit and healthy again and will be in the squad.

Midfielder Matt Bloomfield could miss the next three weeks after he suffered a groin injury which will need surgery.

Left-back Andy Sandell made his return from a knee problem in the reserves last week but is not yet match fit.

Midfielder Stuart Lewis has been ruled out for up to three weeks with ankle ligament damage.

Stockport boss Ray Mathias is boosted by the return of three players.

Southend striker Matt Paterson is on loan at Edgeley Park but was not available to face his parent club during County`s home win over the Shrimpers last weekend.

Defender Alan Goodall served a one-game ban during that match but now comes back into contention along with on-loan Ipswich goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin.

McLoughlin was unavailable to face Southend as he was on international duty with Republic of Ireland Under-21s.

Stockport`s fight against the drop has been boosted after Aaron Brown's loan was extended into a third and final month.

The Leyton Orient defender joined County on an initial one-month deal on January 25.
