Wycombe Wanderers vs Swindon Town
Tuesday 13th February 2018, k.o. 7.45pm
Adams Park
Referee: Andrew Madley

Time and time again, Adams Park proves itself to play host to some of the most thrilling entertainment around… and there could be more in store tonight when fifth placed Swindon Town roll into HP12.

Whether it be the last-gasp 3-2 win over Crewe in the last Tuesday night home league game, or the drama of Marcus Bean’s incredible win over Carlisle last time out, Chairboys fans have been kept on the edge of their seat - or on their feet - throughout this season’s pursuit of promotion.

Tonight sees Swindon arrive with the best away record in the division, achieving victories on 10 of their 16 trips away from the County Ground this season, though they’ve only won one of the last four, going down to Coventry and Accrington recently.

Wycombe’s unbeaten start to 2018 has seen them collect five wins and one draw so far, but having lost at Swindon in both the league and Trophy last October, they’ll be looking to make amends and strengthen their position in the top three with a success tonight.

Team news
Gareth Ainsworth has Luke O’Nien available again after the midfielder served a one-match ban, and is monitoring the fitness of defender Dan Scarr after he came off injured in Saturday’s draw at Exeter. Sido Jombati, Michael Harriman, Anthony Stewart and Sam Saunders remain out.

Swindon could be without central defender Oliver Lancashire, who faces a race against time to be fit again, while Amine Linganzi hopes to recover in time, but Kellan Gordon is suspended.

Man in the middle
Most of Andrew Madley’s 32 games this season have come in the Championship, showing 95 yellow cards and just the one red.

His last involvement in a Wycombe fixture came way back in March 2014, when the Chairboys defeated Hartlepool 2-1 at Adams Park.
