When discussing team news ahead of the visit of Wednesday, Bonner told the media, “Speaking to a few of the boys yesterday, they seem to be OK, it is just the usual matchday bumps and bruises so I think everyone should be OK.

“We have not seen them today… We will hope to get them on the grass this morning and have everybody pretty much available that was available on Saturday.”

On Lankester, however, he added, “Jack Lankester will hopefully be out running today, but he will not be fit for selection Tuesday and probably Saturday either. We want him back in training soon so we can get him back up to speed and back contributing because obviously we have got a busy month ahead.”

Wednesday and Cambridge face each other in the league for the first time since 1984, with the Owls chasing a return to the Play-Off places if all goes to plan.
