The sides each boast two victories and a draw from their last three matches, leaving the hosts seventh, two points outside of the top six, while their visitors are just one point worse off in ninth place.

Wycombe did not enjoy the strongest start to the season, as a run of a defeat and two draws left them on 22 points from 17 league matches , before an important win away at Forest Green Rovers in mid-November was then followed by another defeat to Cheltenham Town.

Then sitting outside of the playoff spots, Wycombe knew they needed to improve their form and were able to amke a return to winning ways at home to Portsmouth at the beginning of November, as Anis Mehmeti opened the scoring early on and Garath McCleary sealed the win with a second in the final minutes.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side then travelled to take on Lincoln City, but they were forced to settle for a goalless draw, before facing the tough test of a home game against Ipswich Town last time out, where they claimed a narrow 1-0 victory.

Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers make the trip looking to leapfrog their opponents and strengthen their own playoff bid with another victory one Monday.

The Gas have impressed since their promotion from League Two last season, and they now find themselves five matches unbeaten in League One since a defeat away at Derby County in late October.

After playing out draws with Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers either side of a victory over Peterborough United, Joey Barton’s side put together back-to-back league wins together heading into Boxing Day.

Bristol Rovers’ impressive improvement has seen them quickly rise to ninth place in their first season back in League One, and they will now aim to continue climbing with a fourth straight win across all competitions, which would see them leapfrog the hosts and potentially move withing touching distance of the top six.

Wycombe Wanderers Team News

We expect an unchanged Wycombe starting XI, with the back four on Jordan Obita, Alfie Mawson, Jack Grimmer and Jason McCarthy set to remain the same.

Garath McCleary and David Wheeler should again complete the attacking unit on the flanks, while Josh Scowen and Lewis Wing should operate in midfield.

Bristol Rovers Team News

John Marquis has a strong claim to come in and lead the line for Bristol Rovers from the start after scoring  second-half brace off the bench in the victory over Charlton.

Midfielder Sam Finley is set to return to contention on Monday after an injury, and he will be fighting to reclaim a starting berth, with Antony Evans keeping his place behind the front line.
