Hereford boss Jamie Pitman could have Waide Fairhurst available for the home game against Wycombe.

The on-loan Doncaster forward missed the 0-0 draw with Gillingham at the weekend through illness, but Pitman will give the 21-year-old as much time as possible to recover before naming his squad.

The Bulls boss has no fresh injury or suspension problems for the clash but has plenty of options available if he decides to freshen things up following two games without a win.

Midfielder Rob Purdie and on-loan Carlisle striker Jason Price are both pushing for recalls after stepping off the bench on Saturday to replace Joe Colbeck and Stuart Fleetwood.

Defenders Janos Kovacs and Richard Rose are also available to return to the starting line-up, while striker Adrian Patulea is another option.

A win would see the Edgar Street outfit move 10 points clear of the npower League Two relegation zone with just six games to go.

Wycombe boss Gary Waddock could have Chris Westwood and Ben Strevens back in his squad.

Veteran defender Westwood has been out with a groin strain but is back in contention, while forward Strevens is fit after a bout of flu.

Striker Jon-Paul Pittman sustained a strained muscle in his back in a run-out for the reserves last week and was an unused substitute for the 2-0 defeat of Stockport on Saturday.

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 as a late replacement at the weekend but is unlikely to come back into the starting XI.

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