Wycombe will be hoping to move back into playoff contention with a win at the Abbey, with three points potentially moving the Chairboy’s up to fifth, depending on results elsewhere.
Gareth Ainsworth’s side made it six unbeaten on Saturday after beating struggling Doncaster – with Garath McCleary and Anis Mehmeti both on target to condemn Donny to a 2-0 defeat and their fourth defeat in five.
The win, that saw the Chairboys move to within just a point of the play-offs, means Ainsworth’s side have conceded just the single goal in their last six outings – with only bottom side Crewe able to beat Stockdale between the sticks since Wycombe’s 3-2 defeat against Accrington in February.

How the U’s head into the game:
Joe Ironside’s goal, which controversially went down as a Dominic Thompson own goal in the 56th minute, sparked euphoria within United’s 2,009 strong away section – and in turn saw United make it two wins in two, having beat Wimbledon last weekend thanks to Adam May’s second half strike.
Head coach Mark Bonner mentioned prior to Tuesday’s clash that he’ll asses both Liam O’Neil and Shilow Tracey, who missed Saturday’s clash, to see whether either can return to the squad.
Also in action around the division:
AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton Athletic (19:45)
Wigan Athletic vs Accrington Stanley (19:45)
Fleetwood Town vs Lincoln City (19:45)
MK Dons vs Crewe Alexandra (19:45)
Morecambe vs Oxford United (19:45)
Bolton Wanderers vs Portsmouth (20:00)
Down Memory Lane:
The Chairboys’ rise through the English league system throughout the second half of the 20th century meant it took 130 years of association football for both sides to meet in 1993–after being drawn to face each other in an FA Cup second round clash at Adams Park.
Wycombe would go on to win that afternoon, thanks to Jason Cousins’ second half goal, and have since enjoyed the share of spoils when it comes to overall head-to-head games.
Mark Bonner’s men will be hoping to end a six-year run on Tuesday, with the U’s not recording a win over the Chairboys since 2016.
Gareth Ainsworth’s side recorded a comfortable win over United just a month ago in the reverse fixture, as Anis Mehmeti’s brace, coupled with Garath McCleary’s strike ended a run of seven games without a win for the Chairboys.
Cambridge United wins: 5
Wycombe Wanderers wins: 14
Will Finnie will referee Tuesday evening’s game at the Abbey, having previously overseen Fleetwood Town’s 3-1 win over Crewe on Saturday.
It will be the first time since the U’s 2-0 win against Walsall in the Papa John’s Trophy earlier this season that Finnie has taken charge of one of United’s games.
Finnie will be joined by assistants Paul Kelly and Mark Stevens ahead of Tuesday’s clash, with Michael Chard being appointed as the game’s fourth official.
