It's 5th vs 2nd in League 1 this weekend, with Wanderers looking to continue their 100% winning start at home against an Imps outfit who've picked up where they left off last season with a fast start to life in the third tier.

The League 2 champions have won four of their opening six league games this term, but have come unstuck in each of their last three away games in league and cup, with a hectic fixture schedule perhaps just beginning to take its toll on Danny Cowley's side.

Wycombe have had a full week to prepare for action, and welcomed two exciting loan signings on Monday with Rolando Aarons and Nnamdi Ofoborh arriving at Adams Park and hoping to make their debuts this weekend.

With the Quest TV cameras in town to film the EFL highlights show from the Chairboys' home, there's plenty of attention around this match - with both clubs looking to rise to the occasion in style.

Wycombe will make a late call on the fitness of Fred Onyedinma after the striker returned to training this week, while Sido Jombati and Curtis Thompson came through Tuesday's practice match at Brentford B unscathed. Paul Smyth remains sidelined with a foot injury.

Lincoln are missing Joe Morrell and Aaron Lewis due to international duty, while loan signing Jake Hesketh is unavailable due to injury, and the Imps will hope to have key defender Michael Bostwick fit again after picking up a knock in midweek.

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.

Tickets for the upcoming away game at Gillingham can be purchased from Ticket Office 1 AFTER the match, but not before, to alleviate queues.

Tickets will not be available on the day for Lincoln fans.

Whats On.jpg

The Chairboys Village is open for business, sponsored by Printkick, with the Rebellion beer tent, BBQ and live performance from local musician Ant Barnes. You can pre-order your drink from the Rebellion beer tent via TicketCo, and collect it from the express lane - read on for details.

There'll be no Wycombe Blue Swans cheer squad at this game, but look out for their return to Adams Park in the near future.

The Quest TV cameras will be around the ground filming the EFL highlights show that evening, with Colin Murray, Ian Holloway and Sam Saunders hosting the programme.

Meanwhile, 500 Club members can collect their plaques from the Trust table in the Caledonian Suite before and after the game, where the England vs Bulgaria match (k.o. 5pm) will be shown on TV.

Due to the England game being shown, the usual post-match Q&A will be held back until half-time of that match (approx. 5.45pm) if there is sufficient demand in the room.
