The Big Match Preview: AFC Wimbledon

All you need to know ahead of the Chairboys' fourth pre-season friendly (k.o. 7.45pm).

23 July 2017

After 80 days away, the Chairboys are back at Adams Park!

Wycombe Wanderers vs AFC Wimbledon
Tuesday 25th July 2017, k.o. 7.45pm
Adams Park
Referee: Charles Breakspear

A feast of fan-owned football awaits supporters at Adams Park this evening as Wycombe Wanderers and AFC Wimbledon go head-to-head for the Cherry Red Records Cup, with both clubs sponsored by the independent music record label.

Managers Gareth Ainsworth and Neal Ardley are old friends from their days as team-mates at Wimbledon FC while of course Adebayo Akinfenwa meets the club that he departed moments after sealing their place in League 1 with a penalty in the play-off final at Wembley in May 2016.

Team news
Adam El-Abd will make his home debut after joining the Chairboys earlier this month, although Anthony Stewart and Scott Kashket are likely to miss out through injury.

AFC Wimbledon have added Liam Trotter to their squad as their seventh summer signing and he's in line for his Dons debut.

Fans of both clubs can pay on arrival - either cash on the turnstiles or by card at Ticket Office 1. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for juniors (ages 18 and under). The terrace and Beechdean Stand will be open for this fixture.

Season ticket collection
Season ticket holders for the 2017/18 campaign can collect their cards from the blue pod before the game, or from Ticket Office 1 for 15 minutes after the game.

The Arriva bus service will not be in operation for tonight's fixture, but there's plenty of parking around the stadium for just £5 a car. Supporters who have booked a seasonal car park pass will have their names on a list at the gate.

The new away kit and goalkeeper kits are now on sale in the shop at Adams Park, along with a new range of trainingwear and leisurewear. The shop is open all the way through to kick-off, and for a short period after the final whistle.

Food and drink
The Caledonian Suite will be open for both home and away fans before the game, while both stands are serviced by kiosks in the corners.

Pick up a programme around the ground for just £1. Parklife contains the views of Gareth Ainsworth, a re-cap of the friendlies so far, a summary of all the news from over the summer, a welcome for AFC Wimbledon and an interview with Adebayo Akinfenwa, as well as doubling up as a fold-out poster of the kits for the new season.

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 2-0 AFC Wimbledon

Blues are victorious against League 1 opposition.

25 July 2017

First-half goals from Luke O'Nien and Adebayo Akinfenwa clinched the Cherry Red Records Cup for the Chairboys as they produced an impressive performance to see off League 1 AFC Wimbledon at Adams Park.

It was the Wanderers’ only home pre-season friendly and the Chairboys faithful will have been impressed with what they saw as they controlled the game at both ends of the pitch to maintain an unbeaten streak in their preparations for the new campaign.

Luke O’Nien converted Joe Jacobson’s cut-back before Adebayo Akinfenwa netted against the club with whom he achieved promotion to the third tier before joining Wycombe last summer.

Kick-off was preceded by the announcement that Nathan Tyson has penned a one-year deal to return to Adams Park, having excelled on this very ground some 12 years ago to earn a move to Nottingham Forest.

He lined up in a front three alongside Paul Hayes and Adebayo Akinfenwa, who were both involved in a fine flowing move early on which resulted in the latter firing wide under pressure against his former club.

Cody McDonald then drilled wide of the near post before Tyson’s header from Sam Saunders’ inviting corner was just a couple of feet too high, and then Will Nightingale sent a header wide at the other end.

The deadlock was broken midway through the first half when Joe Jacobson pounced on a loose clearance and drove into the area, cutting it back for Luke O’Nien to drill home left-footed from eight yards.

Andy Barcham forced a save low down from Scott Brown before Akinfenwa doubled the score against his former club, meeting Luke O’Nien’s knock-down with a first-time strike into the roof of the net, giving the keeper no chance.

Nightingale then fired wide with a swerving shot from distance before the break, at which point Nick Freeman replaced Akinfenwa in attack.

Wimbledon had the first chance of the second period, with Andy Barcham’s curling shot being scooped round the post by Scott Brown, before Gareth Ainsworth made six further substitutions with the Dons making three of their own on the hour mark.

Included in the substitutions was left-back Jack Williams, who has joined the club on trial from QPR, and he almost had a dream start before seeing his shot take a deflection en route to goal.

Saunders then headed over from a Dayle Southwell cross as Wanderers went in search of a third goal to kill the game off, before leaving the field with Matt Bloomfield taking his place.

Wimbledon came close to pulling one back when George Francomb fired wide from the edge of the box, and Barry Fuller also let fly from distance but saw Scott Brown equal to it.

Sido Jombati had a header blocked in the closing stages but there were no further goals as Wycombe made it two wins and two draws from their four friendlies so far.

Wycombe: Brown, Harriman (Jombati 60), Jacobson (Williams 60), Muller, El-Abd (De Havilland 60), Gape (Rowe 60), O’Nien, Saunders (Bloomfield 76), Tyson (Cowan-Hall 60), Akinfenwa (Freeman 45), Hayes (Southwell 60).

Unused sub: Trialist-GK.

AFC Wimbledon: Long, Fuller, Kennedy, Oshilaja, Nightingale (Robinson 60), Francomb, Abdou, Trotter (Parrett 60), Barcham, Appiah (Taylor 60 (Kaja 78)), McDonald.

Unused subs: McDonnell, Sibbick, Hartigan.

Man-of-the-match (sponsored by Cherry Red Records): Luke O’Nien
