First Time Fans Guide
Away Fans Guide

It's a first meeting of Wycombe and MK since 2012, with Paul Tisdale's men achieving promotion from League 2 last term and enjoying a winning start in the league against Shrewsbury last weekend.

They followed it up with a penalty shootout triumph over AFC Wimbledon in midweek, while Wanderers were on the wrong end of their own shootout, bowing out of the Carabao Cup to Championship club Reading.

Gareth Ainsworth's men will take plenty of positives from their display against the Royals and their two opening league games - the win over Bolton and draw at Bristol Rovers.

Ainsworth and Tisdale were regular opponents as two of the longest-serving managers at EFL clubs during Tisdale's time at Exeter, and go head-to-head for the 13th occasion in the dugout.

Team News.jpg

Sido Jombati and Curtis Thompson are unlikely to be involved as they continue rehabilitation on their respective injuries, but Gareth Ainsworth has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game. Darius Charles is available for selection after signing a short-term deal, and David Wheeler could face the side for whom he scored a promotion-clinching goal last season.

Joe Mason and Brennan Dickenson were both absent for the Dons' midweek cup win, and Jordan Moore-Taylor remains out with a knee injury. Russell Martin returns to Adams Park for the first time in nine years, having starred for the Chairboys from 2004-2008.

Ticket News.jpg

Chairboys fans can by online at any time and save £2 through the new TicketCo platform, either on the website at tickets.wwfc.com or the TicketCo Wallet app.

Fans are encouraged to use the online platform rather than queuing to buy a ticket from Ticket Office 1 or 2. Buying online saves you time and money, which can be better spent in the shop, bar or stadium bowl.

Please also note that there will be no cash turnstile facility in the home areas; all fans are required to present a ticket (either the QR code on a smartphone/printout, or a physical ticket).

Tickets for the upcoming away games at Fleetwood Town and AFC Wimbledon can be purchased from Ticket Office 1 AFTER the match, but not before, to alleviate queues.

Tickets will be available on the day for MK Dons fans.
