All you need to know about the Sky Bet League 2 meeting with Notts County at Adams Park on Tuesday (k.o. 7.45pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs Notts County
Sky Bet League 2
Tuesday 15th December 2015, k.o. 7.45pm
Adams Park, HP12 4HJ
Referee: Mr Nicholas Kinseley

"Something I want to concentrate on is really turning Adams Park into a stadium that’s not an easy place to get anything from." Those are the words of Gareth Ainsworth in his programme notes for the visit of Notts County, and with five home games coming up in the space of 25 days, now would be a great time to get back to winning ways on home turf.

Wanderers take on the Magpies a month after they were due to meet in Sky Bet League 2, only for the visitors to force the postponement of the match after three of their 39-man squad were selected for international duty.

They arrive in south Bucks without an away win in the league since the opening day of the season, but they've enjoyed better fortunes at home and have lost just two of their last eight league outings - although they did of course lose in the FA Cup to non-league Salford City.

Saturday's last-gasp 4-3 win over Newport County ensures they'll make the trip in high spirits, whereas Wanderers endured a frustrating day on the road when their meeting with Accrington Stanley was postponed 90 minutes before kick-off.

It does however mean that Gareth Ainsworth's men should be fresh for the fight, with Joe Jacobson and Marcus Bean the only confirmed absentees as they continue their recovery from injuries.

Garry Thompson comes up against his former club which includes ex-Manchester United pair Roy Carroll and Alan Smith in their ranks, and their weekend triumph means boss Ricardo Moniz could enjoy the rare luxury of naming an unchanged team.
