Wanderers have returned to Brentford to capture two more players on loan. Sam Saunders and Nico Yennaris have both joined on loan for one month, and will available for the visit of Stevenage to Adams Park on Saturday (28th February). 31 year old Saunders is described as an attacking midfielder and began his football career with the Charlton Athletic youth team but had to wait until a move to Dagenham & Redbridge before achieving his Football League debut after the Daggers were promoted from the Conference in 2007. He moved to The Bees in the summer of 2009 (along with teammates Danny Foster and Ben Strevens) on a free. He has since gone on to make more than 150 First Team apps, scoring 27 goals, although a knee injury in January 2014 interupted his career- returning in November 2014 and subsequently earning a year extension to his contract at Griffin Park. Meanwhile, 21 year old Yennaris is a full-back who made four First Team appearances for Arsenal before signing for The Bees in January 2014 on a two and half-year deal for an undisclosed fee. However, his time at Brentford has been plagued by injuries, restricting him to just seven starts and three sub appearances. Saunders has been allocated the No. 7 in the Wanderers squad, while Yennaris will wear The No.4. The loan deals will expire on 29th March 2015.

Wanderers 'League Two' match away to Luton Town scheduled for Saturday 21st March 2015 has been moved to the following Tuesday (27th March 2015) after being picked for live coverage by Sky Sports. This will be Wanderers second appearance live on Sky this season having lost at home to Burton Albion back in November. The previous away live appearance was in February 2013 when a Matt McClure goal secured a 1-0 victory at Gillingham. Wycombe will receive around 10,000 from Sky as the away club, while Luton are expected to pick up around 30,000. Hopefully a good omen for Wanderers will be the previous live TV appearance at Luton in January 2001 when a second half brace from Andy Rammell secured a 2-1 victory for Lawrie Sanchez's side.
