Wycombe play at home on a Saturday for just the third time in the league since Christmas, and it's a repeat of one of their high points of the season as Preston come to town.

North End were crushed 4-1 in the FA Cup third round meeting at Adams Park two months ago, with Gareth Ainsworth's men cruising into a 3-0 lead to put the game out of reach of the visitors and set up the clash with Spurs in the next round.

That result eased the frustration of two dropped points in the league fixture at Preston in December, when Wanderers' excellent second-half showing saw them storm into a 2-1 lead only to concede late on.

Alex Neil's men sit 21st in a table of home records, but sixth when judged on their away record, winning on eight of their 17 trips away from Deepdale, but only three victories from their last 13 overall leave them almost equidistant between the play-offs and relegation zone.
