Sky Bet have offered the following preview: "Wycombe have enjoyed their season to date as they sit third in the Sky Bet League 2 standings. The Chairboys are 21/20 favourites to pick up three points at home to Cambridge, who are the outsiders for victory at 12/5. The draw is on offer at 23/10.

"Wycombe are unbeaten in their last six league matches but Cambridge are a side to watch on the road with no defeat in their previous three away games in the league. The scores have been level at half-time in five of Wycombe’s last six contests and Cambridge have been level at the break in four of their previous five matches. The even-money for the draw at half-time could be worth a look.
