27 matches remain in the Chairboys' season, and they're all league fixtures following Wednesday's disappointing FA Cup exit - but there's no better way to respond than by continuing their phenomenal home form and consolidating top spot in League 1 with a victory over Doncaster Rovers.

This fixture last season was one of the highlights of Wycombe's campaign, overturning a 2-0 deficit - on the back of four successive defeats - to record a thrilling 3-2 victory.

Doncaster went on to lose in the play-offs to Charlton, and lost manager Grant McCann and key players John Marquis and Tommy Rowe over the summer, but new boss Darren Moore has made an assured start to life at the Keepmoat Stadium, sitting 14th in the table (but with three games in hand over some clubs) and collecting 10 points from their last four outings.

Wycombe have seven wins and two draws from nine home games so far this season, and will look to wrap up a near-perfect ten with another three points ahead of Tuesday's appetising first ever visit to Ipswich Town.

Team News.jpg

Darius Charles, Joe Jacobson and Matt Bloomfield should all return after sitting out Wednesday's cup tie, while Sido Jombati missed out due to the birth of his daughter. Rolando Aarons faces a late assessment on his injury, and with no new setbacks reported, Fred Onyedinma is the only one likely to be sidelined through injury.

Doncaster could hand a start to Rakish Bingham after he scored off the bench in midweek, while Cameron John has returned to training but it's unlikely he'll be fit in time. Niall Ennis is another injury absentee.

Man in the Middle
Following Graham Salisbury’s appearance as referee on Wednesday, it’s his son Michael who takes charge on Saturday.

He’s shown 35 yellow and six red cards in 14 matches so far, and hasn’t refereed a Wycombe fixture since the 3-1 loss at Burton last Boxing Day.

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).

Supporters are advised to download their QR code to their smartphone wallet, or screenshot it to the camera roll, to prevent any issues using internet data to retrieve the code from emails whilst entering at the turnstile.
