“I had a little injury and that’s why my time was cut short at Cambridge but I did enjoy it. They are a very technical team and very much an attacking team.

It’s going to be a big job for us back five to keep a clean sheet. I’m sure we’ll give them as much trouble as they give us.”
Wycombe go into the game having been knocked off top spot in League Two, but having put together a run of 11 games without defeat as they held Portsmouth to a goal-less stalemate last weekend.
