A foot injury kept the striker out of Saturday’s win over Plymouth Argyle but he has been cleared to feature on Tuesday.

“Fej is fine and available,” boss Andy Butler said.

“We’ll manage it but as far as I know now he’s available and in the squad.

“Other than that we’re looking at the same group to choose from and we’ll take it from there.

“Everyone is fine and has reported well so we’ll just keep ticking by game by game.”

Butler will discover later this week the projected timescale on Jon Taylor’s recovery from the ankle injury he suffered against Portsmouth last week.

“We’re speaking to Tayls and Chats [Jon Chatfield, physio] and it’ll probably be Wednesday by the time we get the results,” Butler said.

“Then we’ll sit down and see what’s what. I don’t want to put a timescale on things I’m not 100 per cent sure about.”
