David Flitcroft is absolutely delighted to have winger Alfie Potter fit again and believes he could be a key figure in their final push for a play-offs place.

Potter returned from injury at Luton on Monday and manager Flitcroft said: “He is an absolutely massive addition to what we’ve put in place.

“Alfie is a player that gives you impact, whether from the start or from the bench.

“He is someone, when you look around your squad, that you know has creation, invention and a goalscoring threat.”

Potter almost played on Good Friday but it was decided to give him a few more days in the end.

“Alfie got some good work into him during the end of the week and was close to being involved against Accrington, but there was probably an amount of risk to that,” said Flitcroft.

“With the six games we’ve got left we chose to involve him in some part at Luton. That was the plan and it came off.

“He played for a period against Rotherham in the reserve game and came through that, so we are delighted we’ve now got Alfie to pick.”
