Wycombe welcome Gary Doherty back into their squad for a crucial final home game of the season.

Doherty, on loan from League One champions Charlton, was ineligible against his parent club last weekend but returns to the reckoning to help in the fight against relegation.

Doherty is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up, replacing either Leon Johnson or Danny Foster - both of whom were recalled at The Valley with defenders Dave Winfield and Anthony Stewart missing.

Winfield limped off against Oldham the previous weekend after suffering a recurrence of a thigh problem, while Stewart missed that game on April 14 with a knee injury. It remains to be seen whether either player will be fit to return on Saturday.

On-loan winger Chris Hackett has also been missing since the Oldham match because of a groin injury and he will continue to be monitored.

The Chairboys go into the fixture occupying the final relegation place, three points behind 20th-placed Walsall and a further point adrift of Leyton Orient.

Central defensive duo Liam Chilvers and Damion Stewart are injury concerns for Notts County ahead of their final away fixture of the season.

Chilvers and Stewart have started the last four games together at the heart of the back-four, but both are struggling with hamstring problems.

Chilvers limped off during the second half of the 4-2 home defeat to Bury last weekend and Stewart, who is on loan from Bristol City, also ended that game with a niggle.

If they do not recover in time manager Keith Curle has Mike Edwards and Krystian Pearce to call upon.

Full-back Julian Kelly could give Curle more defensive problems as he is also nursing a knock.

Seventh-placed Notts go into the game two points behind Stevenage who currently occupy the final play-off spot.
