Symes boost for Brewers
Michael Symes is expected to return to the Burton squad when Wycombe visit the Pirelli Stadium.
Symes missed the draw at Dagenham & Redbridge last Saturday with a niggling groin injury. The on-loan Leyton Orient striker has seen a specialist in London and rested this week to give him the best possible chance of being available.
"He's been a little bit stiff and I've seen him holding his groin and his hip a little bit in recent weeks," said Albion boss Gary Rowett. "We've kind of ignored it because he's been doing so well.
"But we decided to leave him out last weekend and he's rested this week and hopefully we'll see him fine for the rest of the campaign."
Calvin Zola has been playing with a hip/hamstring problem in recent weeks and that has flared up again, making the striker a doubt ahead of the weekend.
Aaron Webster resumed training on Thursday after his hamstring issue while fellow defender Nathan Stanton is fit again after a knee injury.
Goalkeeper Matt Ingram will make his competitive Wycombe debut after being recalled from a loan spell at Oxford City.
The 19-year-old youth product will step into the starting line-up with Tottenham loanee Jordan Archer away on international duty with Scotland Under-21s.
Gareth Ainsworth, who believes his side need just one more win to be sure of npower League Two football for another season, is not ruling out further changes after an energy-sapping trip to Bradford in midweek.
QPR loanee Bruno Andrade has returned to his parent club for treatment and will have his ankle assessed by the Chairboys' medical staff upon his return this Friday.
Midfielder Stuart Lewis is likely to feature despite being one yellow card away from a two-match suspension.
The game will see Ainsworth pit his wits against Rowett, a team-mate back in their Cambridge United days.
