His return to the squad spells good news for Graham Taylor, who told www.avfc.co.uk: “There’s no problem. Ollie will be fit.

"He’s had a bit of trouble with a sore Achilles tendon. That was sore when he came back from Sweden.

“If we look at the last 12 months, he’s played a lot of football and it wasn’t possible for him to rest in the close-season.

“But he’s handled it quite well and Wednesday night was the game for him to miss out on and he’s OK to play tomorrow.”
