Wanderers return from an international break with renewed hope of putting their first Championship points on the board in the first of a hectic schedule of fixtures, starting with Millwall's visit to Adams Park on Saturday.

The two sides have met in each of the three competitions in the past decade but this will be their first league meeting since a League 1 affair in 2010, when the Blues completed the double against the promotion-chasing Lions.

The current generation of Lions fell just short of the Championship play-offs last season and have made a solid start to the new term under boss Gary Rowett, who's coming up to a year in charge and goes head-to-head in the dugout with old friend and former Cambridge United team-mate Gareth Ainsworth.

Wycombe's first four games have seen the squad hit by injuries and suspensions but they've shown signs of promise, particularly in the second half against Swansea last time out at Adams Park, and will look to put two weeks of hard graft on the training pitch into action come 3pm on Saturday.

Team News
Ainsworth has hinted at a possible return for former Lions striker Adebayo Akinfenwa, who's been sidelined so far following a knee operation, while Dominic Gape, Uche Ikpeazu, Ryan Tafazolli and Alex Pattison could all be in contention. Jason McCarthy could make his 100th appearance for the club against his former side, five years to the day since he made his first appearance for Wycombe, while Fred Onyedinma is another who could lock horns with a previous employer. Daryl Horgan is available after he played for Ireland in midweek.

Millwall will be without Troy Parrott and Billy Mitchell, but have the luxury of an otherwise fully fit squad. Former Wanderers loanee Frank Fielding is likely to be included in the squad.

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

Man in the Middle
Andy Madley was in Kosovo last weekend for a Nations League qualifier, and has overseen six matches so far this season; five away wins and one draw. His last game was in charge of Wycombe was the 3-2 victory over Swindon in 2018.
