2020 started with a bang - quite literally, with the fireworks display that greeted the full-time whistle against Ipswich Town at Adams Park - and took Wanderers on an adventure into the dreamland of the Championship during a time when the world stood still due to a global pandemic.

Now, for the chance to another incredible chapter to be written into the club's recent history, they need to start collecting wins to climb the table, and the next opportunity presents itself tonight against a Cardiff side still reeling from back-to-back defeats.

The Bluebirds would have been expected to feature strongly in the top six before a ball was kicked this term but only won three of their first 13 fixtures before springing into life with five triumphs from the next six.

Tonight they return to Adams Park for the first time since 2003 to meet a Wycombe side managed by former Bluebird Gareth Ainsworth - and with ex-Cardiff youngster Joe Jacobson in defence - who have yet to turn combative performances into enough points since they last tasted victory at the start of November.

Team News
Alex Pattison serves the final game of his three-match ban, but there are no new injury concerns for the Blues.

Cardiff are missing Kieffer Moore, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Lee Tomlin and Isaac Vassell due to injury, but Josh Murphy has recently recovered from illness and is expected to feature.

Wanderers will be in their light and dark blue quarters.

Man in the Middle
Leigh Doughty has shown 37 yellow cards and one red in his 12 games so far this season, but has never officiated in a Wycombe fixture, refereeing mostly at National League level in his debut season two years ago, and League 2 last term.
