Team News: Wycombe Wanderers
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Wycombe Wanderers boss Matt Bloomfield to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Brandon Hanlan (Cruciate ligament injury) is out of contention.
Team News: Reading
With a completely healthy group available to select from, the Reading manager Rubén Sellés does not have any fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
Reading should have enough to score a goal against this Wycombe Wanderers side, however that is unlikely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Wycombe Wanderers when the full-time whistle blows. Looking forward to this.
