Wycombe Wanderers vs Doncaster Rovers
Saturday 12th January 2019, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park
Referee: Trevor Kettle

A busy Christmas followed by a long wait for action... the Chairboys' season finally returns to a regular schedule from this weekend onwards and Gareth Ainsworth's men have the bit between their teeth as they seek a return to form.

This time a month ago the Blues sat ninth in the table after collecting a sixth successive home league victory over Barnsley, but they've picked up just one point from five games since then, with the expectation level around Adams Park being reset towards a focus on survival first and foremost.

Saturday's visitors Doncaster's have aspirations of a top-six finish and recent results suggest they're capable, having enjoyed a perfect start to 2019 with a 5-0 thrashing of Rochdale followed by an FA Cup upset at Championship side Preston.

Rovers delivered a lesson as to the severity of the division when they condemned the Blues to a 3-0 defeat in the reverse fixure on the second matchday of the season back in August, but Wanderers have proved their credentials by taking down fellow high-flyers Peterborough and Barnsley on home turf and are hopeful of adding another scalp this weekend.
