Team news:

Darius Charles, Chris Whelpdale and Charlie Lee all took knocks at Plymouth on Tuesday night for Stevenage and could be doubtful for Saturday's game. Adam Marriott could return from injury but Harry Worley, Chris Beardsley, Ronnie Henry, Calvin Zola and Dean Parrett are out.

Wycombe are likely to remain unchanged for the fifth successive game despite a midweek reverse against Tranmere. Boss Gareth Ainsworth has the likes of former midfielder Stuart Lewis and on loan Rotherham duo Danny Rowe and Nicky Walker to come in if changes are needed.

View from the dressing room:

"We know at the weekend we’ll get what we earn from the performance we put in. We’re getting ready to put in a really strong performance. We’re back on home territory after two away days. We’ll be better as a team for the three league games that we’ve played together and it’s upto us to make sure we are. These have started with two wins in their first three, so they’ve got a bit of confidence and a bit of form, we’ll need to be on our mettle to beat them." Graham Westley
