IAN Evatt can barely hide his delight at having a full complement of attacking players once again.

Xavier Amaechi’s return to fitness leaves the Wanderers boss with options ahead of Wednesday night’s FA Cup replay at Stockport County.

The former Arsenal wide man, on loan from Hamburg, had been one of the biggest outlays of the summer but a fractured metatarsal sustained against Preston in pre-season meant he is only now returning to contention, a third of the way into the League One campaign.

Elias Kachunga is nearing full fitness after missing pre-season, and Amadou Bakayoko also put his injury issues behind him with a goal against Crewe on Friday night.

A relieved Evatt hopes it is a sign of things to come.

“Hallelujah, that’s how I feel,” he said. “I haven’t had that all season and now all of a sudden I’ve got options, which is great.

“Once we get (Eoin) Doyle back as well, that’s what we wanted and that’s why we signed these players in the summer.

“Things are looking good and it’s down to me to make the right decisions.

“Kacha’s coming into form all the time and improving game on game. Baka looked great as the nine the other day, getting an important goal and winning a penalty. Dapo is Dapo, and then you’ve got Xav (Amaechi), you’ve got Izzy (Lloyd Isgrove).

“We musn’t forget Izzy isn’t a right back, even though he’s doing fantastically well there. So yeah, we’ve got some serious options.”

The BBC cameras will be at Edgeley Park hoping to catch a cup shock but Evatt believes a positive week sends his players into the game in a good frame of mind.

“There should be no greater incentive than to play in what is a cup competition steeped in history,” he said.

“We want to have a very good cup run. We didn’t get the job done in the home game so we must go and do it in the replay.

“Yes, the TV helps and adds spice, and with Antoni as well. But we’re looking forward to it.

“The players are in a really good place, they’re really bubbly at the moment, they’re really confident. Hopefully we’ll go there and give a good account of ourselves.”
