Fleetwood Town are the visitors to Adams Park this evening (Tuesday) as Wanderers look to return to winning ways in Sky Bet League 2.
Blues drew 0-0 with Accrington Stanley on Saturday, while Fleetwood had a weekend off as their clash with Newport County fell foul of the weather.
Graham Alexander’s side have lived up to their pre-season billing as promotion candidates and come into the game sixth in the table.
Alexander won January’s Manager of the Month award after guiding the Cod Army to four wins and a draw from their five games. However, they are without a win in their last three matches in all competitions.
Gareth Ainsworth – talking to Chairboys Player
“Fleetwood must have three times the budget we’ve got and they’ve really showed that in the last few months with the amount of players they’ve signed.
“It’ll be interesting putting ourselves up against one of the strongest teams in the league. Graham (Alexander) just got manager of the month and hopefully the curse can follow him down.
“He’s a good friend of mine but there will be no love lost on the touchline and we’ll both be after the three points. We’re at home and we need to start winning our home games.”
Fleetwood skipper Mark Roberts – talking after Friday’s postponement at Newport County
“With the games at the moment and the fixture congestion in front of us they are coming thick and fast but that is exactly how we like it.
“We want to play football matches and it shows we have been successful throughout the season and long may that continue.
“It is the time of the year when the weather can be unpredictable so we have to factor that into our preparations. The game has been rearranged now for March so we have to fully concentrate on Tuesday’s game at Wycombe.
“We trained on Saturday morning and we are making sure we are doing the right things now ahead of the next game. Hopefully we can continue our good form at the start of the year that won the gaffer the Manager of the Month award in January.”
Wanderers have no fresh injury concerns following Saturday’s draw with Accrington Stanley, with only Charles Dunne (fractured tibia) and Tommy Fletcher (thigh) sidelined
Fleetwood striker Jamille Matt is closing in on a return to fitness after breaking his ankle, while midfielder Alex Marrow is also nearing full fitness.
