It will be a strange feeling at Adams Park as Stoke City run out again in front of an actual crowd.
There will only be 1,000 fans – and all home fans – but it is a landmark day, particularly for Wycombe Wanderers, who are playing at the highest level in the club’s history and only now able to open the doors for the first time.
Stoke head to Buckinghamshire without several key men but are hoping to pick up their first mid-week league win of the season.
Here is everything you need to know about the match.
It’s a 7.45pm kick-off at Adams Park, where Stoke haven’t played since March 2002 – a 1-0 defeat if you were wondering, courtesy of a late goal from Jermaine McSporran. That was Mike Flynn’s last game for Stoke.
Is it live on TV?
The game will be shown live on the Sky Sports red button service, with the broadcast starting at 7.40pm.
Championship mid-week highlights will also be shown on EFL on Quest on Wednesday at 10.30pm.

Michael O’Neill said: “Lee (Gregory) won’t be available. John (Obi Mikel) is… an extreme doubt, and none of the other injured players are able to return at this minute in time.
“We’re still without both goalkeepers, still without Joe (Allen) longer term, Jordan Thompson, Steven Fletcher.
“We’re down a few bodies, there’s no doubt about that, but it gives an opportunity for some others to come in.”
Ryan Shawcross and Thibaud Verlinden travel with the squad for the first time this season.
Ryan Tafazolli and former Port Vale and Crewe striker Uche Ikpeazu are being assessed for Wycombe.
