Wycombe Wanderers vs Watford
Tuesday 27th October 2020, k.o. 7.45pm BST
Adams Park
Sky Bet Championship

After Wanderers ran one of last season's Premier League sides close on Saturday, another arrives at Adams Park tonight as Gareth Ainsworth's men look to right the wrongs of recent weeks and get off the mark in the Championship.

Each of their past four defeats have carried a hard luck tale in terms of refereeing decisions going against the Blues, or impressive performances being unrewarded with a positive result, but the Chairboys chief won't allow his side to dwell on what might have been as they tackle the Hornets under the new floodlights on home turf tonight.

Watford have won four and drawn two of their seven games so far, but conceded a last-gasp goal to Bournemouth at the weekend to deprive them of a third successive triumph.

Wycombe also suffered late heartbreak at Norwich after a marvellous display, and are gradually growing in confidence and strength with more players returning to fitness after injury.

Last Time Out

Here are the highlights from Wanderers' meeting with Norwich on Saturday:

Meanwhile, Watford were held 1-1 by Bournemouth at Vicarage Road:

Team News
Former Hornets striker Uche Ikpeazu came through his return to the side unscathed on Saturday and could feature, while Dominic Gape, Ryan Tafazolli and Jason McCarthy are all back in full training and come into contention.

Watford are without Troy Deeney and Stipe Perica but Andre Gray and Will Hughes could be available again.

Wanderers will be in their light and dark blue quarters.

Man in the Middle
John Brooks has shown 23 yellow cards and no reds in eight games so far this term, including Watford's 1-0 derby win over Luton, and his last involvement in a Wycombe fixture was the 0-0 draw at Lincoln in April 2018.
