The 17-year-old striker will play up front alongside Ched Evans today against League One leaders Scunthorpe United.

For Evans it’s a first start since September.

It ends speculation about his fitness after Wilson refused to reveal whether it was Evans or Paul McGinn who had suffered an injury set-back.
