Forest Green V Wycombe at The New Lawn : Match Preview

31 December 2017
New signing Alex Whittle unavailable for Forest Green against Wycombe

Alex Whittle must wait for his Forest Green debut after joining from York on a free transfer.

Rovers agreed a move for full-back Whittle last week, but the paperwork has yet to be processed and he will not feature against Wycombe on New Year's Day.

Keanu Marsh-Brown could return to the starting line-up after being troubled by a calf injury in recent weeks.

But Dale Bennett is set to be missing for the third successive game with an ankle problem.

Adam El-Abd remains doubtful for Wycombe after missing out against against Mansfield

The defender has missed the last three games and could extend that run to four with just one more day to recover as the frantic festive period comes to a close.

Fellow centre-back Anthony Stewart is also likely to be unavailable again.

Forward Scott Kashket is another absentee but is hopeful of a comeback soon as as he continues to work his way back from a pelvis problem.
