Same again for Silkmen
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be reluctant to make changes when his in-form side host Wycombe.
The Silkmen recorded a thumping 4-1 derby win at Stockport last Saturday before beating Morecambe 2-0 in midweek to extend their unbeaten run to four games.
Defender Carl Tremarco is recovering from a hip injury and remains sidelined but Simpson has no other major concerns and has urged his side to maintain their winning momentum against the Chairboys.
He said: "We had a great win on Saturday and it was important that we followed that up with another three points.
"That's four unbeaten now, and just one defeat in six, so there's some momentum there and it was important we kept that going."
On-loan Rob Kiernan is set to make his Wycombe debut.
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international defender has penned a month-long loan deal from Watford and will be in the squad at Moss Rose.
Kevin Betsy made his return from a hamstring strain during the 4-1 win over Burton in midweek, while midfielder Matty Bloomfield pulled his hamstring at Southend last week and is set to be out of action for around a fortnight.
Striker Jon-Paul Pittman is back in contention after recovering from the knee injury he sustained in September.
Defender Chris Westwood is out with a groin injury, while left-back Andy Sandell is still sidelined with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out for a minimum of six weeks.
Ainsworth strike proves decisive
High-flying Wycombe edged out Macclesfield as Gareth Ainsworth's first-half strike handed them a 1-0 victory in a match that saw three players sent off.
The decisive goal came in the 39th minute when David Winfield nodded on Marvin McCoy's long throw for veteran skipper Ainsworth to volley home from close range.
Macclesfield were unlucky not to equalise on the stroke of half time when their 20-year-old French defender Tony Diagne lashed a 10-yard drive off the inside of the post and the follow up shot from Paul Bolland was cleared off the line by Stuart Lewis.
Macclesfield began brightly but Wycombe were unlucky not to take the lead on 29 minutes when their top scorer Scott Rendell looped a volley off the crossbar.
After the break Macclesfield striker Tyrone Barnett saw a close-range header again hit the bar with Emile Sinclair going close on 77 minutes with a 20-yard goal-bound volley that ricocheted wide off Barnett.
The game was marred in injury time by a violent 22-man brawl which saw Macclesfield duo Sinclair and Ricky Sappleton along with Wycombe's Winfield all given their marching orders.
