Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be reluctant to make changes when his in-form side host Wycombe.

The Silkmen recorded a thumping 4-1 derby win at Stockport last Saturday before beating Morecambe 2-0 in midweek to extend their unbeaten run to four games.

Defender Carl Tremarco is recovering from a hip injury and remains sidelined but Simpson has no other major concerns and has urged his side to maintain their winning momentum against the Chairboys.

He said: "We had a great win on Saturday and it was important that we followed that up with another three points.

"That's four unbeaten now, and just one defeat in six, so there's some momentum there and it was important we kept that going."

On-loan Rob Kiernan is set to make his Wycombe debut.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international defender has penned a month-long loan deal from Watford and will be in the squad at Moss Rose.

Kevin Betsy made his return from a hamstring strain during the 4-1 win over Burton in midweek, while midfielder Matty Bloomfield pulled his hamstring at Southend last week and is set to be out of action for around a fortnight.

Striker Jon-Paul Pittman is back in contention after recovering from the knee injury he sustained in September.

Defender Chris Westwood is out with a groin injury, while left-back Andy Sandell is still sidelined with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out for a minimum of six weeks.
