“Everyone’s pushing in the right direction, it’d be great to have the experience back but we’re running out of games to get that match fitness.”

On Norwegian midfielder Berge, Heckingbottom added: “I’ll include Sander in the squad.

“He’s had plenty of training days with us and is feeling stronger and more confident every day.

“He’s done a lot of work so we’ll look to integrate him into the squad now.”
