Wanderers are back on the road this weekend as they make the trip to South Yorkshire to take on struggling Doncaster Rovers.

After home wins on back-to-back Saturdays, this game marks the start of a testing couple of weeks for Wycombe, with the team also facing a midweek journey to high-flying Rotherham and a longer trip still to Fleetwood at the end of the month.

Rovers may be bottom of the league, but have played two games fewer than some of the sides close to them and are undoubtedly a club in transition.

James Coppinger, the Matt Bloomfield of Doncaster if you like, ended his playing days at the conclusion of last season and this campaign’s team haven’t been able to live up to his outstanding influential and technical qualities.

Following previous manager Darren Moore’s move to Sheffield Wednesday, Richie Wellens was selected as his long-term successor in the summer.

The 41-year-old gave Swindon Town their best season for a number of years in 2019-20 when he guided them to the League Two title, and looked a shrewd appointment despite a short spell at Salford City.

However, Wellens perhaps wasn’t given the resources he needed at the Keepmoat Stadium to build a competitive League One squad.

Experience midfielder Tommy Rowe returned to the club in the summer, and Ben Close also looked a solid signing.

Despite that, there’s still not enough EFL know-how there and ‘Donny’ are having to rely on inexperienced players taking their first foray into senior football.

Attacking-minded loanees Tiago Cukur and Rodrigo Vilca have struggled to adapt to the English game, and that’s come at a bad time with two proven goalscorers currently out of the side.

Fejiri Okenabirhie has been injured all season, and Omar Bogle is out of favour and is believed to be training away from the first team.

Doncaster have still won their last two home league games, keeping great attacking teams Morecambe and MK Dons at bay, but those are their only two three-point hauls in League One so far.

Their troubles going forward have been clear to see, netting only six times. No other team has scored fewer than nine.

On paper, it seems like a favourable fixture for the Chairboys, and they have shown that they can beat lesser-fancied sides away from home already, seeing off Cheltenham and Shrewsbury.

That’s certainly been Wanderers’ strength so far this season, winning games they’re expected to, but they’ve been second best against fellow promotion contenders Wigan, Sunderland and MK Dons.

It will be interesting to see if that continues when the Rotherham game comes around on Tuesday, although before then, it’s a good chance to chalk up three more points against an out of sorts Doncaster.
