Wycombe Wanderers welcome Bournemouth to the Adams Park Stadium in EFL Championship action on Saturday.

Both sides will be aiming to return to winning ways as they head into this game off the back of defeats to Cardiff City and Brentford respectively.

Wycombe Wanderers failed in their bid to make it three games unbeaten as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Cardiff City.

In a game where the Bluebirds saw red, Wales international Kieffer Moore scored in either half to condemn Wycombe Wanderers to a 25th defeat of the season.

With 37 points from 44 games, Gareth Ainsworth's men are rock bottom in the league standings and are certain to be relegated back into the English third tier.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, failed to move into third place in the table as they suffered a 1-0 defeat against 10-man Brentford.

In an end-to-end affair, Bryan Mbeumo’s 77th -minute strike was all that separated the two sides at the Vitality Stadium.

The result saw Bournemouth’s six-game winning run come to an end, while also falling four points behind Brentford in third place.

The Cherries will now look to bounce back to winning ways and maintain their position in the log. They are level on points with fifth-place Swansea City and sixth-place Barnsley.
