Huge game Saturday for both teams. A win for either puts them into pole position to catch Burton. A game both will be desperate not to lose.

After our disappointing draw on Saturday I'm just hoping we can get a few players back from injury. Mangan is close but I can't see him making the bench quite yet whilst the club are strangely being very quiet on Lawrence's injury. Unless I've missed something?

I think the midfield battle will be key. Woods is one of the best in the division however his probable partners (Wildig, Southern, Clarke) haven't shone at CM as of yet.

Hoping we stick with 3-5-2 and give JLAA a start ahead of Barnett or Collins.

Liam Lawrence had returned to light training before the Cambridge game so he will hopefully not be too far away from a return by now.

Overall Town have a dreadful record against Wycombe, albeit a bit better at Adams Park than at the Meadow (old or new version), with events conspiring to irritatingly deny us a result in more recent times.

Wycombe's recent home form is poor whilst Town's away form, Tranmere aside, is good. So a long awaited end to the Wycombe hoodoo would be very welcome.

Can't wait for this one. Going in hope more than expectation and it's more important that we don't lose than we win, if that makes any sense.

Wycombe's recent form, particularly at home, hasn't been amazing so I'm hoping we can start quickly and capitalise on that. However, I'd take a point now!

I would say Shrewsbury have a very good chance of getting something out of the game, we indeed aren't much cop at home. Personally I'd take a draw, the biggest thing is not to fall out of the auto spots.

I wouldn't call this hoodoo, just that neither of us (if you went on past form alone) is that likely to win? 4 wins for us, 1 for you (albeit a thumping) and 7 draws in the last 10 seasons.

Not one to hold a grudge but we owe one. A win courtesy of a terrible refereeing decision after the Ainsworth ghost goal and the chalked off goals this season would be nice :p

Can't see anything but a draw, this will be tight with both teams terrified of losing.
