Wycombe Wanderers vs Burton Albion
Tuesday 7th December 2021 (KO 7:45pm)
Adams Park
Referee: Joshua Smith

After a short break, the Chairboys are back in action as they welcome Burton Albion to Adams Park. Gareth Ainsworth's side come into the fixture following a hard fought 2-2 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and a 3-0 victory against top-of-the-table Plymouth Argyle. Having exited the FA Cup in the previous round, Wycombe had this weekend off, giving the squad an opportunity to recover from a hectic fixture schedule.

It wasn't long ago that Burton made the trip to Adams Park, which saw the visitors run out 5-0 victors in the Papa John's Trophy; A much changed Chairboys side struggling to deal with a pacey Brewers attacking line.

Since then, Burton Albion have had a relatively balanced set of results - winning two and losing three of their last five and currently sitting 10th in the League One table. Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will be looking to build on recent performances in order to get a result against, albeit a much changed, Chairboys side.


Tickets are available to purchase online up until kick-off on Tuesday night. Ticket Office 1 will also be open for on-the-day ticket sales.
