The striker missed last weekend's 1-0 win over Dagenham to be present for the birth of his baby daughter but returned to training on Tuesday ahead of the clash with the midweek giantkillers.

"Being a father of three, I know how important it is to be there for the birth of your children," manager Gareth Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. "The lads did the business without him - a great day all round.

"I gave him one day paternity leave on Monday but he was back in on Tuesday and worked hard. He'll be part of the squad travelling to Bradford this weekend."

Ainsworth has no fresh injury concerns but he will be without Gary Doherty once again as he recovers from back surgery.

Danny Foster also went under the knife and is ruled out while Leon Johnson still has a knee injury.
