Wycombe Wanderers Team News:

Wycombe striker Tommy Mooney will be sure to get a harsh reception from the travelling Swindon fans. Mooney famously left Swindon to join local rivals Oxford United after the playoff season 3 season’s ago and has been a figure of hate ever since. Wycombe lost Saturday 3-1 to second place Lincoln City after beating Premiership side Fulham 2-1 in the Carling Cup earlier in the week.

Player to watch: Tommy Mooney

Tommy Mooney will be out to silence the Swindon fans who will be on his back all game. Mooney shocked Town fans by joining Oxford United after Town were elminated from the Nationwide Division 2 playoffs 3 seasons ago. Mooney scored 20 goals that season and hasn’t stopped finding the back of the net since.

Swindon Town Team News:

Paul Ince could make a return to the squad after missing Saturday’s game against Notts County due to a virus. Fola Onibuje could start with Christian Roberts up front after scoring his first senior goal for Town. Andy Gurney, Gareth Whalley, Dennis Wise and Gus Poyet will not feature for Town. Swindon are expected to bring 1,000 plus to this match.

Player to watch: Peter Brezovan

Brezovan has kept Town near the top of the table all season. Wycombe are a good side and will be looking to take all 3 points. Brezovan will be key along with Town’s defence if they are to get a result.
