Saturday's second-half display at Preston arguably merited three points for the Blues - now they head north again looking to go one further this time around and clinch a victory to move them out of the relegation zone.

It was two years and a day ago that Gareth Ainsworth's men overcame the Tykes 1-0 at Adams Park, with the Yorkshire outfit claiming revenge in the reverse fixture en route to winning automatic promotion to the second tier.

They survived relegation in dramatic fashion on the final day of last season and saw an upturn in recent form under new boss Valerien Ismael, though Bournemouth proved too strong in their last outing, winning 4-0 at Oakwell.

Therefore the men in red could bite back like a wounded animal tonight but will come up against a confident outfit in Wycombe, who've lost only two of their last nine games and got back on the goalscoring trail at the weekend after a mini drought.
