"I Believe In Miracles" was a film charting Forest's European Cup glory but could well have been the title of a documentary following Wanderers' remarkable rise into the Championship to tee up a first ever league encounter of these two clubs.

Both Forest and Wycombe come into the game off the back of last-minute winners in midweek, with new Reds boss Chris Hughton earning a first victory thanks to a 2-1 success against Coventry.

Elsewhere in the Midlands the same scoreline was achieved by a Chairboys side led by Richard Dobson as they saw off Birmingham City to rack up a second win in a row.

Now Wycombe hit the road against Forest, returning to the City Ground for the first time since they lost 1-0 in a League Cup tie in 1996, seeking another positive result to take into the two-week international break.

Chairboys will wear poppy armbands for this fixture, being the closest game to Remembrance Sunday.
