Alex Neil doesn’t spring any surprises with his team selection this afternoon, just one change as the injured Patrick Bauer is unavailable.

Daryl Horgan starts for Wycombe this afternoon, the Republic of Ireland international initially came to England to join PNE, wearing the famous no.7 but left for Hibernian before the Chairboys acquired his services.
