Preview | Five facts ahead of Wycombe

17 November 2017

Reds haven’t lost on the road in their last five League games, dating back to a 3-1 loss to Colchester at the start of September. Since then they have won one and drawn four.

Wycombe’s recent form is mixed with just one win – over Solihull Moors in the FA Cup – in their last seven League and Cup games, a sequence which followed four successive wins in September and early October. Their last two home League games against Exeter (0-0) and Cheltenham (3-3) have ended in draws. They last won a League fixture at home against Barnet in September (3-1).

Despite their mixed form Wycombe are 5/4 favourites with Sky Bet to win on Saturday. Reds are a tempting 15/4 to repeat last season’s victory at Adams Park and the draw is 14/5.

Adebayo Akinfenwa (pictured) is Wycombe’s top scorer this season with ten goals, all of them in the League. Former Brighton striker Craig Mackail-Smith has three goals since joining the club from Luton in the summer.

Veteran keeper Barry Richardson was Northampton’s played Reds in the FA Cup – back in 1991. Richardson, the Chairboys’ goalkeeping coach, is 48 and made a return to competitive action in 2016 when he kept a clean sheet in a victory over Plymouth.
