The midfielder picked up his 10th caution of the season on Tuesday night as the Chairboys lost 3-0 to Bradford and will now serve a two-match ban.

But while Ainsworth would prefer to have the 19-year-old available, he thinks a rest will do no harm.

"Obviously it's a blow but I'll put a positive spin on it, he'll have a 10-day break from games and come back fresh," said Ainsworth.

"He won't have to go through the rigours of games. He's been one of our pivotal performers in the run we've been on.

"It was always going to happen, now it's happened I know when he's going to be missing.

"I'll adjust the team accordingly for Saturday."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
