Having dusted off the bruising they sustained at Brentford with the resilient if unspectacular showing in midweek against Birmingham, Wanderers go in search of three points when improving Nottingham Forest return to Adams Park on Saturday.

Forest were the first ever visitors to the stadium when it opened 31 years ago, but haven't been back since then-boss Steve McClaren oversaw a comfortable 4-1 win in the League Cup in 2011.

Current manager Chris Hughton has guided the club to a steady progression since being installed in October, with the Reds now having lost just one of their last nine, and collecting victories in each of their last two away games.

Wycombe went down 2-0 in the reverse fixture - which was former Forest winger Garath McCleary's debut for his new club - but will look to build on their relatively solid home form which saw them overcome Cardiff and Preston in recent outings.
