Wycombe Wanderers face fellow promotion chasers Mansfield Town this weekend in a clash at the top of SkyBet League Two.

Wycombe currently sit in 4th place, just outside the automatic on goal difference. Their opponents are sat just outside the play-offs in 8th place. A point behind Coventry City in 7th.

Wycombe have taken six points from their last nine available with their most recent victory coming against Welsh side Newport County on Boxing Day.

Goals from former Nottingham Forest striker Nathan Tyson and target man Adebayo Akinfenwa moved the Chairboys up to 4th place. Newport midfielder Joss Labadie saw red for the visitors in injury time which would see the hosts wrap up the points.

Adam El-Abd and Marcus Bean could return to the starting 11 whereas Anthony Stewart remains out with a calf strain. Striker Scott Kashket is still remains on the sidelines but is edging ever closer to match fitness.

Mansfield come into the fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with Grimsby Town at Blundell Park on Boxing Day.

Lee Angol came off the bench to strike an equaliser in the 80th minute for Steve Evan’s side.

Evans may be able to recall Joel Byrom to the starting 11 after his spell on the sidelines whereas former Scunthorpe United defender David Mirfin may return in the new year.

These two met back in September at Field Mill which ended up in a dull 0-0 draw with both sides happy to pick up just a point.
