Football - Knott set for Wycombe start

Billy Knott looks set to start for Wycombe against Preston.

PA Sport Report

The on-loan Sunderland midfielder played for 87 minutes of their midweek 2-2 draw with Portsmouth on Wednesday night despite illness but he looks set to get the nod for their crucial FA Cup second-round tie.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth admitted his players, who have faced midweek matches in each of the last four weeks, looked "shattered" after that clash with Pompey and he could ring the changes.

Anthony Stewart, whose last-gasp leveller earned them a point, Max Kretzschmar and Jo Kuffour will all hope to feature as the Chairboys look to record their first victory since the previous round of the competition.
