Preview:  Lincoln City v Wycombe Wanderers


Wycombe Wanderers travel to Lincoln City on Saturday for their 24th league game of the season.


The league table currently shows Wycombe in 3rd place with 40 points from 23 games and Lincoln in 23rd spot with 19 points from 20 games

Lincoln's Home Record........Won 3 - Drawn 3 - Lost 5 - Pts 12 (Rank 21)

Wycombe's Away Record....Won 5 - Drawn 4 - Lost 2 - Pts 19 (Rank 3)


Having just been turfed out of the FA Cup by bottom of the table Hereford, Wycombe take on second-bottom Lincoln hoping to return to winning ways after two consecutive defeats.

The last time they lost two in a row, the Blues responded by winning their next five in all competitions and manager Gary Waddock will be keen to start another run against a struggling Imps' side who haven't won since the middle of November.

Sincil Bank used to be a happy hunting ground for Wycombe but in recent years it's been a graveyard. Following their promotion to the football league, the Blues won there four times in a row, but on each of their last three visits the Imps have triumphed 1-0.

Team selection is anybody's guess this week. Waddock experimented with a 4-3-3 formation on Tuesday and may well persist with the system in order to accommodate loanee Scott Donnelly without softening the centre of midfield.

On the other hand, Wycombe have failed to find the net in their last two outings having scored for nineteen games in a row using a 4-4-2 formation.

Here are all the stats....
