Wan­der­ers de­fender Pierre, who watched the games on TV, had a very brief loan stint with Richard Money’s side in the win­ter of 2013.

“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.
