Last time they met

Wycombe became the first visiting side in the league to win at the Lamex Stadium this season when they beat Boro 2-0 back in October.

Kevin Betsy and Stuart Beavon were the scorers.

Team news

Defender Dave Winfield has completed a three-game suspension and will be available for selection and should he start then one of either Leon Johnson or Chris Westwood is likely to make way.

A knee injury continues to keep fellow defender Andy Sandell on the sidelines.

Skipper Mark Roberts returns for Boro after serving a one-match ban on Tuesday evening, but Jon Ashton limped out of that game with a leg injury and could miss out on Saturday. If Ashton does miss the game, Michael Bostwick is likely to deputise at centre-back with Luke Foster taking his place in midfield.

Elsewhere, Joel Byrom and Taiwo Atieno are expected back from injury next week and striker Ben May could be recalled as a lone striker if Graham Westley decides to flood the midfield with Foster, David Bridges and John Mousinho.
