Team News:


Gills boss Steve Evans has said he may have to make a few changes due to a virus which has struck the camp. Matty Willock (knee) will be out for at least a couple of weeks but Regan Charles-Cook is available.


As for Wycombe, Matt Bloomfield will be assessed up until the last moment after being substituted last weekend due to injury. However Fred Onyedinma could feature after returning from injury. Paul Smyth is unavailable, but Sido Jombati and Curtis Thompson could be back in the squad.

 

Manager Comments:

Steve Evans – “They will be an absolute handful and they have got a manager in charge who I think very highly of and is a personal friend.


“When were at Leeds (in 2015) they asked if we could take a team down there. It was an international weekend and they were struggling to pay the wages.


“We took several thousand fans down there and we helped them get through the month. I would only ever contemplate doing that for someone I regard as a friend.”

Gareth Ainsworth – “You can only have the vision of what you want to do and then the players have to do it.


“We’re top of EFL League One, which makes me very, very proud.”


Previous Meetings:


The clubs last met at Adams Park in February when a late goal from Regan Charles-Cook gave Gills all three points in a 1-0 win.


The reverse fixture saw Gills come from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Priestfield; Josh Parker, who has recently signed for the Chairboys, heading one of the goals for the home side.


In total the two teams have met on 25 occasions. Of those, the Gills have won nine games with Wycombe coming out on top eight times.

Odds:


Gills win – 7/5
Draw – 23/10
Wycombe win – 13/10
