Swindon Town hope to go back to the top of League 2 as they travel to Wycombe on Tuesday Evening.

Vital Quotes:

"I do my work. I`m working on Notts County for Saturday and then Wycombe on Tuesday.'

Dennis Wise talking about his future with Swindon Town F.C

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.

Match Facts & Stats

Wycombe Wanderers eliminated Swindon Town from the Carling Cup in the first round last season with a 3-1 win at the County Ground. This match was Alan Reeves last match for the club as he suffered a broken leg. Town will play Wycombe three times this season. Town will play Wycombe at home for a league match on Boxing Day while also playing them away again in the first round of the Johnstones Paint Trophy in mid October.

Match Prediction:

2-2 Draw. Both teams will be hungry for a win. Being a top of the table clash this game should be very entertaining.

I hope we don't have to dig deep, trouble is after the start we had expectations are high - we are due some luck soon.

On a serious note good luck in finding the money you need to survive you have a tough few months ahead and may yet lose your manager. I hope it all works out for you as the mighty yellows look forward to securing six points next season! JIM SMITH'S YELLOW ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't bank on the six points - theres little chance we will be joining you in the Conference next season.

You're right you won't join us in the conference as we won't be there! I can't wait to play you lot again and I won't mind it if you finish 2nd behind us in league 2 next season as at least we can beat you twice more in league one the following year!
