Something’s got to give. Exeter have won six successive home league games; Wycombe have won five straight matches in the league. The League 2 promotion race is ready to slip into a new gear.

Wanderers’ last-gasp winner over Carlisle last weekend kept them in the automatic promotion places and denied Luton the opportunity to pull away further, with the Hatters seeing off Exeter with a slender 1-0 win at Kenilworth Road.

For the Grecians, that loss represented a first league defeat since New Year’s Day, and may have been avoided with a full-strength side, but boss Paul Tisdale had a list of absentees due to injury which he hopes will be far shorter this weekend.

Wycombe have a 100% winning record in the league in 2018, and their recent triumph at Luton will have given them confidence that they can defeat their promotion rivals and avenge last season’s 4-2 loss in Devon which triggered a sequence of disappointing results, ultimately proving costly in their play-off pursuit.

Team news
Exeter should be able to welcome back Troy Archibald-Henville, while Craig Woodman Ryan Harley and  Jake Taylor may face a late race to be fit in time.

Luke O’Nien misses the trip due to suspension but Tafari Moore is available again after injury, and Sam Saunders and Sido Jombati are closer to a return. Michael Harriman and Anthony Stewart remain out.

Man in the middle
Stephen Martin has refereed mostly at Championship level so far this season, showing 64 yellow and two red cards in his 29 matches in charge.

His last Wycombe game was against Exeter back in September 2015, when the Blues ran out 2-0 winners.

Kit
Wycombe will be in their regular light and dark blue quarters with light blue shorts for this fixture.

Tickets
Wanderers’ allocation of tickets has sold out, with no more available. Pre-booked tickets can be collected from Exeter’s ticket office from 1.30pm on the day of the game.

Postcode: EX4 6PX

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the A404 south, leading to the A404(M) and continue to the westbound M4. Leave the M4 at J20 and take the M5 (s/p The South West). Leave the M5 at Junction 29 then turn right onto the A3015 (Honiton Road). At Moor Lane roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the A3015. After 0.46 miles, take the 2nd exit at the roundabout onto Honiton Road, the B3183. Follow “City Centre” signs and go past the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.  At the roundabout take the 4th exit onto Western Way, the B3212. At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Old Tiverton Road. St James Park and Stadium Way are located on the left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 179 (average journey time a little over 3 hours)

Suggested car parking area
Note that there is no on-site parking for supporters at St James Park on match days. There is street parking, but quite a way from the ground as there is a local residents’ scheme in operation. There are also a number of car-parks within a ten-minute walk from the stadium.

Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 09.00. Travel prices are £23 for adults, £22 for seniors, and £21 for juniors. The price for non-members is £28 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (bookings@owwsa.co.uk) you need to do so by Thursday, February 8th at 17.00 hrs.

Fancy using the train?
There is an hourly direct service (at 3 minutes past the hour) from Paddington to Exeter St David’s with fastest journey time a little over two hours. Options for the return leg are at 18:02 or 19:06 arriving back in the capital at 20:37 and 21:39 respectively. The nearest railway station to the ground is actually St James Park. You can catch a local train from St David’s to St James Park.   

Facilities for away fans
Please note that St James Park is going through a redevelopment throughout the whole 2017/18 season, meaning that there is only the IP Office Main Stand (Seated) and Thatchers' Big Bank (Standing) open. As the away end is closed, visiting fans are housed at the end of the IP Office Main Stand. Capacity is set to 350 away fans only – please see elsewhere in this programme for further details. The IP Office Main Stand was opened in 2001, runs along the length of the pitch. It is a covered all-seater stand, which houses away fans in blocks L and M.

Spare time before or after match?
There is a Social Club at the ground, which usually allows in away supporters. A popular choice with away fans is the nearby ‘St Anne’s Well’ on Well Street. This has local ales, well cooked food, and Sky Sports. This is just a minute walk from the ground. There is plenty of choice if you walk into the city centre. Coming recommended are the ‘Duke of York’ and the ‘Amber Rooms’ in Sidwell Street, and also ‘The Victoria' on Victoria Road. Another option is the “Bowling Green” PH, on Blackboy Road about a quarter of a mile from the ground. This is a friendly establishment popular with both home and away fans.

Match Reports

Report: Exeter 1-1 Wycombe

Read the report from St James Park.

10 February 2018

Just like London buses, Marcus Bean made it two goals in two games as he earned Wycombe a point in a 1-1 draw at Exeter City after Lloyd James’ first half opener at St James Park.

Gareth Ainsworth made one change to his starting XI with the fit again Tafari Moore coming in for the suspended Luke O’Nien with Dominic Gape slotting in for him in centre midfield.

It was Exeter who were quickest out the traps, perhaps not surprising as they were far more used to the less than perfect surface at St James Park. Liam McAlinden played in an early cross but there was no team mate to meet it with less than a minute played.

They did take the lead with just over ten minutes later however as City had a free-kick out on the left wing.  Lloyd James struck it into the corridor of uncertainty between defence and keeper, nobody touched it and it nestled inside the far post after one bounce.

Wanderers suffered an injury blow on 15 minutes as they lost Dan Scarr, who was replaced by fellow centre half, Nathan McGinley.

Wycombe were making life hard for themselves, attempting to pass it along the defence on a bobbly surface and a change of approach was needed. Dominic Gape did manage to dink a cross to the back post but Dean Moxey did well to put his body between himself and Adebayo Akinfenwa to see it out for a goal kick.

Wycombe were beginning to grab hold of the game as it approached the half-hour mark. Matt Bloomfield found Paris Cowan-Hall on the right wing, passed it back to Moore, he cut inside, crossed on his left foot, but Nathan Tyson miscued his header wide.

City went down to ten temporarily just before the half as Jordan Storey went off with a facial wound after an aerial challenge with Akinfenwa, he was eventually replaced by Craig Woodman and Exeter held on until the half, with Wanderers at that point yet to test Christy Pym in the Grecians goal.

Half-time: Exeter 1-0 Wycombe

It was the Chairboys who came flying out of the traps in the second period as they showed great energy and pressure and pushed City back.

With the half three minutes old, Joe Jacobson delivered in from the left with both Bean and Bayo both trying to get shots away. It then fell to Paris who drilled it low, and the keeper held.

Wanderers' early pressure paid off and it was that man again, Marcus Bean, who drew his side level. Bloomfield turned well and tried to tee up Paris in the box, it went loose for Bean and he made it two in two.

Not content with a point, Wycombe went straight on the hunt for another, and it nearly fell for Bean once more just before the hour mark, but Exeter scrambled it clear as the away support rubbed their eyes.

On the hour mark there was an important interception from McGinley as McAlinden drove forward with the game becoming very much an end-to-end affair. Akinfenwa then reached a deep free-kick and looped a header just over the bar with the game finely poised going into the last 25 minutes.

Tyson as he has all season looked dangerous on the counter, and a few shirt pulls were all Exeter had in their locker to stop him. The forward found a yard and cut in on 66’ put couldn’t find enough power on the shot to beat Pym.

Tyson was involved again shortly after as Scott Brown's huge kick missed everyone, which Tyson then ran onto but couldn't quite control it to create a shooting chance.

Ainsworth rolled the dice by bringing on fresh legs in the front three in the form of Mackail-Smith for Cowan-Hall. It was from a dead-ball where Wycombe had their next chance although Jacobson could only hit the wall from 25-yards out.

Then with 10 minutes to go Wanderers had a let-off as City crossed in, El-Abd's header fell at the feet of sub Ryan Harley, but McGinley rushed across to block.

Freeman was introduced to the play for Tyson with time ticking away as the Chairboys faithful tried to roar their boys to victory. Bayo waltzed past a couple on 85’ but his shot was blocked.

Exeter’s hopes of winning this one were hampered when having made all their subs, Pierce Sweeney went down with a groin injury. The full-back bravely carried on, but saw out the remaining minutes in a forward position as heading was all he could do at this point.

After seeing a total of 14 minutes added time in their last two games, it was surprising to see just three minutes raised at the end of this one. Time did indeed run out, but Wycombe had claimed a very good point after a much improved second half.

Attendance: 3,956 (336 Wycombe)
