- Read the key storylines ahead of the game

It's back to the league for the Chairboys after back-to-back cup triumphs, and the aim now will be to continue their best ever sequence of results since entering the Football League 24 years ago.

26 points from a possible 30 since the end of October have propelled Gareth Ainsworth's men into the play-off places and that's where they want to stay throughout the second half of the campaign, whilst continuing their adventures in the Emirates FA Cup and Checkatrade Trophy.

Those pursuits take a back seat for a couple of weeks as the Chairboys look to maintain their sparkling home form against Yeovil first and then Luton a week later - both of whom they've never beaten at Adams Park in the league, but this squad have the hunger to banish records like that.

Ainsworth will hope to have Scott Kashket available after he missed the midweek penalty shootout win at Blackpool as a precaution, while Matt Bloomfield, Michael Harriman and Dayle Southwell are sidelined through injury.
