Will Wycombe beat Nottingham Forest?
The form guide suggests Forest could be considered favourites for this one, losing just one of their last nine league games, and being unbeaten on their last four away trips. They did of course win the reverse fixture 2-0, with Lyle Taylor’s brace bringing Wycombe’s two-game winning streak to an abrupt end in November. That said, considering the Blues lost each of their first three home games, they’ve only lost three since, and can draw confidence from recent victories at Adams Park against Cardiff and Preston (albeit in the cup), and the midweek clean sheet against Birmingham.

Will Wycombe be awarded a penalty?
VAR reviews would probably have seen Wanderers collect more points than they’ve been able to attain so far this term, and they’ve only been awarded two spot-kicks in the league all season – converted by Joe Jacobson in the defeats to Barnsley and Coventry. Referee James Linington has dished out three penalties in 16 matches, and has overseen two Wycombe fixtures – the opening day loss to Rotherham, and 2-2 draw at Preston.

How many will Wycombe score?
The midweek draw with Birmingham was the Chairboys’ first blank at home in seven matches in all competitions; in that time, they’ve scored one goal on four occasions, twice against Cardiff, and four against Preston in the FA Cup third round.

Will Wycombe score in the first half?
The Blues had netted first half goals in each of their four matches before the Birmingham stalemate, but only scored five second-half goals all season at home.

Will Uche Ikpeazu score?
The Ugandan forward has deservedly earned rave reviews from Wanderers fans since securing a starting berth after his return from injury, scoring impressive goals against Middlesbrough and Brentford in recent weeks. He also won a penalty against Preston, and provided an assist against Tottenham, suggesting he’s one who could be influential in the outcome.

How many tackles will Curtis Thompson make?
The ex-Notts County man comes up against his former city rivals and will have an important role in breaking up the attacking play of an improving Forest outfit. They moved the ball quickly to create plenty of chances, mostly from out wide, in the reverse fixture, and Thompson will be integral in stopping the service to Lewis Grabban, Glenn Murray, Lyle Taylor or whoever boss Chris Hughton selects up top.
