Tuesday night’s trip to MK Dons will most likely come too soon for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson to feature for Wanderers, as Ian Evatt’s side resume League One business.

The Icelandic striker returned to training on Monday morning after a hamstring strain but is not expected to be in the squad at Stadium:MK.

Evatt has no other new injury concerns having worked with his players at Lostock on Saturday when the game at Cheltenham was postponed as a mark of respect to the Queen passing away.

The Wanderers boss says he will now stick to the selection plan he had devised before the weekend.

“I think what team I would have picked on Saturday will be completely different to the team I pick tomorrow night,” he said.

“The plan was to make five or six changes to the team that was due to play on Saturday but that didn’t materialise, so we will attack this game fresh with the best team that I think can get a result at MK and then Saturday will be different again.

“That’s just football and obviously the circumstances that we find ourselves in are unprecedented so unfortunately for some of the lads that would have played on Saturday, it’s a missed opportunity but there will be others coming along pretty quickly.

“We’ve got a great squad of players. We were able to play 11 v 11 on Saturday in a really intense training session which enabled us to get some work into the players and then we prepared for tomorrow night.”

Saturday’s game was cancelled on Friday lunchtime, thankfully before Wanderers had set off for Gloucestershire.

Evatt would have liked to have seen an ‘all or nothing’ approach to cancelling the weekend’s sport, with football taking its own approach compared with the likes of rugby, cricket and Formula One.

Evatt explained: “We prepared normally on Friday morning until probably the last 10 minutes of training and Richard Cooper came out to say the game was off. We would have been ready either way.

“We haven’t got an opinion on whether that was right or wrong. A game being off is fine, we’ll pay our respect that way, but it would have been nice to pay our respects publicly to someone who has represented our country so well.”
