Third place Fleetwood Town return to Highbury this Saturday after collecting four points from two games on the road.

Wycombe Wanderers come to the Fylde coast third-bottom of the table but on the back of a mini-revival following midfielder Gareth Ainsworth being appointed caretaker manager. Micky Mellon has recently seen the resilience of bottom-two Bristol Rovers and Barnet and he is under no illusion Wycombe will also prove a stern test. “We have another difficult game but another opportunity to gather more points.  It will be tough but if you are looking to be successful in any league you must collect maximum points at home.  We know it will be difficult. Wycombe have had two good results in their last two games so we will need to play very well in order to take the points. “ Town are looking to build on a run of two wins and a draw but the Town boss is only looking ahead. “I don’t really concern myself with what’s been done. Saturday is the most important thing now. We are looking forward to playing at Highbury as the Barnet game feels a while ago. We’re looking forward to seeing our home support and we’ll put a good display on.” In addition to long-term injury Anthony Barry the treatment table is busy with Andy Mangan (knee), Dean Howell (ankle) and skipper Steve McNulty (calf). Mellon was forced into the loan market this week bringing in Wales international Rob Edwards from Barnsley. “We have a small group of injured players at the moment but we have a squad that can overcome these problems. Rob Edwards was brought in because we only had one recognised centre half fit and available. It was important to bring in a player of Rob’s calibre because that’s what we need to keep moving forward.” Wycombe come to Highbury following a Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Portsmouth on Tuesday. Ainsworth told the Bucks Free Press his players must maintain the performance they showed against Pompey. "You set your standards and they have shown me they can do that against Plymouth, Torquay and Portsmouth. It's not been a fluke, it's not a one-off. They have done it in three games and with different personnel. It's not just an eleven it's 15 or 16 different players I've used in the three games. "They have all shown me what they can do so there's no reason now not to perform any less, unless you've got an injury. If you're fit I know you can do it. You have to do it every week - that's how you play for Gareth Ainsworth's side."  Tickets are available all next week by calling 01253 775080, through the website or visiting the club shop which is open Friday until 5pm and Saturday 9am to kick-off at 3pm).
