Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth is sweating on the fitness of midfielders Bruno Andrade and Joel Grant after the pair picked up ankle injuries in the win against Torquay.

QPR loanee Andrade suffered a recurrence of the problem he picked up in the 3-0 defeat to Bradford, while striker Grant eventually limped off having picked up a knock in the first half.

The duo will undertake fitness tests in the build-up to kick-off and Ainsworth may have to recall himself having inspired his side to a 2-1 victory at Plainmoor in the second half.

The Chairboys' player/manager, who is yet to decide whether to hang up his boots at the end of the season, has made 19 appearances in the current campaign to date and could feature again on Saturday.

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander must decide whether to start top scorer Jon Parkin.

The 31-year-old striker has scored nine times in 11 starts for the Cod Army despite being troubled by hamstring problems throughout the season.

Parkin was restricted to a substitutes' role in Town's last two outings and he might remain on the bench against the Chairboys as doubts persist over his match fitness.

Alexander told BBC Radio Lancashire: "He's a big player for us but he's not fully match-fit at the moment. What do we do? Start with him and run the risk of him hurting himself again? Or come on and make an impact?"

Elsewhere winger Gareth Evans is pushing for a recall having scored for the reserves this week on his return from an ankle injury.

Shaun Beeley (ankle) and Youl Mawene (foot) also featured for the second string to hand Alexander a further boost, while fellow defender Alan Goodall returns from suspension.

Midfielder Jamie McGuire serves the second game of a three-match ban and striker Andy Mangan (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
