It may be the international break, but the fixtures continue to come thick and fast for the Chairboys as they host Gillingham on Saturday.

It’s one of just four League One fixtures still standing after the schedule was decimated due to international call-ups.

A fifth consecutive home league win would see Wanderers really establish themselves as one of the main promotion contenders, and could see them end the weekend at the summit.

Three points combined with Plymouth failing to beat Burton would allow Wanderers to climb four places to the top.

However, it’s too early to get too excited about all that anyway, and the Gills will pose a difficult test, having claimed a smash-and-grab win on their last visit to Adams Park.

Manager Steve Evans certainly doesn’t hide the fact that the Kent club have one of the smaller budgets in the league, and taking that into consideration, their squad isn’t a bad one.

Max Ehmer, Ben Reeves, and Danny Lloyd were all solid summer additions, and striker Vadaine Oliver has carried on from his prolific 2020/21 campaign, netting four goals in his last eight games.

Jamie Cumming is a promising young goalkeeper, while 21-year-old centre-back Jack Tucker has been linked to Championship clubs in the past.

There is plenty of quality in the Gillingham squad, but if Wanderers play as they generally have done at Adams Park this season, three more points could be on the cards.

Evans’ side are almost exactly where you’d expect them in to be in the league, sitting 18th, with their two wins coming against promoted clubs Morecambe and Cambridge.

They were soundly beaten by Wigan last time out, and take on Sunderland after this clash, so are in the midst of a very challenging run of games.

The Wycombe squad will be slightly depleted, with Daryl Horgan and Sullay Kaikai on international duty with the Republic of Ireland and Sierra Leone respectively.

Tjay De Barr was also initially called up for Gibraltar but turned down the chance to play against the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Memphis Depay to try and gain more minutes for the Chairboys.

He came off the bench with 25 minutes to go in the Papa John’s Trophy defeat to MK Dons, and with players in his position missing, the summer signing may be hopeful of a second league appearance on Saturday.

The aforementioned Horgan has been a key player for Wanderers this season, so will be a big miss, but if Gareth Ainsworth can find the right way to replace him, another home win may be there for the taking.
