Wycombe boss Gary Waddock will check on Stuart Beavon's fitness ahead of the home clash with Crewe.

Striker Beavon has been sidelined with a knee injury and missed out on Friday's draw at Torquay, but he is nearing a return.

Skipper Gareth Ainsworth was passed fit to face the Gulls after recovering from a hamstring injury and the former QPR man is in line to start once again.

Left-back Andy Sandell came through Friday's stalemate at Plainmoor after recovering from a knee problem and he is also expected to start.

Dave Winfield also returned after breaking his nose against Northampton and the defender came through the full 90 minutes as the Chairboys dug deep to secure a point against Paul Buckle's side.

Crewe will be without midfielder Luke Murphy.

The 21-year-old requires a hernia operation and will sit out the Railwaymen`s remaining three matches this campaign, starting with the trip to Adams Park.

Defender Adam Dugdale made his first start since mid-March in the 2-1 victory over Morecambe and is likely to retain his place alongside Ashley Westwood.

Clayton Donaldson bagged a brace in the dramatic comeback against the Shrimps and the striker will be hoping to add to his 27-goal haul. "That`s the first time we have come from behind to win a game all season so we are delighted," manager Dario Gradi said.

Mat Mitchel-King made a late appearance as a defensive substitute and will be pushing for only his eighth start of the season.

Crewe remain six points off the play-off places as the season draws to a close.
