Dermot Drummy and all you need to know about Saturday's game


The wait is over and the English Football League Two kicks-off this Saturday as the Reds host Wycombe Wanderers in their first game of the season.

 

It has been a busy summer for Head Coach Dermot Drummy and his Assistant Manager Matt Gray, with no fewer than 17 new faces arriving at the club during the off-season.

 

Pre-season has seen wins over East Grinstead Town, Three Bridges and Worthing, as well as positive performances at home to both Brighton & Hove Albion and Millwall, and a draw at Aldershot Town last weekend.

 

Gareth Ainsworth’s men provide the first test of the league campaign this weekend….

The Chairboys have brought in four new faces during the off-season, the most recognisable of which is striker Adebayo Akinfenwa – Ainsworth has snapped up the man affectionately known as ‘the Beast’ on a one-year contract.

 

Also arriving at Adams Park this summer was Dayle Southwell. The striker has signed a two-year deal with the club after scoring 54 goals over two seasons for his former employers Boston United.

This week the club completed their fifth signing of the transfer window with the arrival of 22-year-old centre-back Max Muller after a successful trial.

 

We’ve Met Before:

 

The last meeting between the two sides came in a fixture at Adams Park in late December – it ended in a 2-0 win for Ainsworth’s side. An early goal from Max Kretzschmar and late second from Sam Wood meant that the Reds’ failed to score in either game against the Chairboys last term.
