Wycombe Wanderers vs Birmingham City

In Memory Of: Sandie Derben

The shortest month of the year is packed with seven crunch fixtures for the Chairboys as their bid to close the gap on the sides above them kicks off with the visit of Birmingham City to Adams Park tonight.

Gareth Ainsworth's men were victorious in the reverse fixture - their second win in a row - but only one league triumph has been achieved since then and they'll hope to summon the spirit of the wounded animal following Saturday's heavy loss at Brentford.

The squad has been bolstered with the arrivals of Jordan Obita and Nnamdi Ofoborh ahead of the transfer deadline, while City have been busy themselves, adding a number of new faces in a bid to steer clear of the drop zone, currently sitting in 20th after a run of one win in nine.

It's Richard Dobson's 500th match as assistant manager of the Chairboys, while the club will also be remembering lifelong supporter Sandie Derben, who passed away this weekend and a shirt, scarf and programme cover bearing her image has been placed in her seat.

Last Time Out
Here are the highlights from Wanderers' 2-1 win at Birmingham in November:

Team News
Anthony Stewart returned to the squad at the weekend after a two-month absence from injury, while Jordan Obita and Nnamdi Ofoborh are also available, giving Gareth Ainsworth the opportunity to shuffle the pack after the loss at Brentford.

Birmingham are without Zach Jeacock and Caolan Boyd-Munce, while Alen Halilović is a doubt.

Kit
Wanderers will be in their regular home strip.

Man in the Middle
John Brooks has shown 62 yellow cards and two reds in his 19 games so far this season, which included the 1-1 draw with Watford in October.
