- WATCH: Best bits from Gareth Ainsworth's press conference
- WATCH: Anthony Stewart speaks ahead of the game

A League 2 fixture as recently as January 2018, the Hatters and the Chairboys lock horns in the second tier in the fourth game of the new season, with Gareth Ainsworth's men hunting for their first goal and points of the campaign.

Luton endured a similarly tough introduction to life in the Championship last term, but survived relegation on the final day after an impressive run of form following the return to the managerial hotseat of Nathan Jones, who'd been gone too long since guiding the Bedfordshire outfit to two successive promotions.

They started the new season with victories over Barnsley and Derby, but fell to defeat at local rivals Watford last weekend after a League Cup encounter with Manchester United.

Wycombe showed promise in their second half display against Swansea last time out and will hope that the recent return from injury and suspensions respectively of midfield duo Curtis Thompson and Dominic Gape will inspire a turn in results this time around.

Team News
Wycombe welcome Dominic Gape and Darius Charles back from suspension, while Uche Ikpeazu could also be included after missing out recently with an injury. Jason McCarthy is in line for his 100th appearance for the club.

Luton are without Dan Potts, James Bree and Tom Lockyer, but Glen Rea could be available again after a recent absence.

Kit
Wanderers will be in their regular light and dark blue quarters.

Man in the Middle
Top-flight official Graham Scott was in charge of the same encounter back in 2016, when Luton ran out 4-1 winners at Kenilworth Road.
