The Big Match Preview: Accrington vs Wycombe

All you need to know.

21 November 2017

Team news, tickets, travel and more.

Accrington Stanley vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 21st November 2017, k.o. 7.45pm
The Wham Stadium
Referee: Ross Joyce

Wycombe make the long trip to Accrington on Tuesday night looking to build on their impressive 4-0 win over Crawley at the weekend.

An opener from Ebere Eze, before a hat-trick from Craig Mackail-Smith ensured the Blues were back to winning ways in Sky Bet League Two, piling the pressure on the teams above them.

One of those sides ahead of them is their next opponents. John Coleman's Stanley are unbeaten in their last four league games and sit in third position in the league standings. An 88th minute equaliser from Mallik Wilks rescued a point at home to Newport at the weekend which meant they go into tonight's fixture four points ahead of the Chairboys.

Team News
Gareth Ainsworth has reported no new injuries with only Michael Harriman expected to be out beyond Christmas, as Scott Kashket, Nathan Tyson and Josh Umerah edge closer to a return.

Accrington manager, John Coleman confirmed that Seamus Conneely remains a big doubt following his groin tear in training last week.

Man in the middle
Ross Joyce has shown 83 yellow and one red card in his 19 games as a referee this season. He has officiated the Chairboys once already this campaign - the 3-1 home win over Barnet in September.

Kit
Wanderers will be wearing their first-choice strip for the game at Accrington.

Travel
By Adrian Wood

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to northbound M6 (M40, M42). Leave the motorway at J29 and take the M65 (signed Burnley, Blackburn). Leave the M65 at Junction 7, taking the Clitheroe turn off the roundabout (A6185). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights opposite Clayton Business Park, following the A678 (sign posted Padiham). Follow the road over the canal bridge to the next set of traffic lights. Turn right again going over the motorway bridge and towards Accrington on the A680.  Carry straight on at the next set of lights with the Greyhound pub on your right.  Follow the road as it bends to the right and then take the first left after the Crown pub into Livingstone Road.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 211 (average journey time 3 hours 25 minutes)

Suggested car parking area
There is very limited parking available at the William Dyer Electrical Stand end. The price per game is £5 and can be pre-booked by phoning 01254 356950. Otherwise car parking is available on the streets surrounding the club, and for a small donation, on land adjacent to the ground belonging to a local amateur side.

Fancy using the train?
As yet again this is a midweek fixture this is not an option as the last London bound train off Accrington is at 20:21hrs. For anyone travelling up by rail the best route is to use Virgin West Coast out of Euston changing at Preston. Journey time is a little over 3 hours. Accrington station is about a mile away from the ground – walking time around 20 minutes.

Facilities for away fans
Visitors are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground. This can hold up to 1,800 fans after this area was recently extended. In addition some seats are available in the Whinney Hill Stand. This has a mixture of seating and terrace and has the benefit of some cover, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements. The official ASFC programme, containing all latest news, interviews, features and reports is available around the ground priced £3.

Match Reports

Report: Accrington 1-0 Wycombe

Blues fall to narrow defeat in the north-west.

21 November 2017

Mark Hughes netted the game's only goal as Accrington edged a narrow encounter at the Crown Ground.

The centre-half finished from close range with 20 minutes remaining to seal the points for his side in a game of few clear-cut chances for either team.

Gareth Ainsworth made one enforced change to the side that started in the 4-0 crushing of Crawley at the weekend, with Dominic Gape unavailable for selection so Sido Jombati slotted in at right-back, while Sam Saunders dropped off the bench due to illness.

There was an early chance for Craig Mackail-Smith, fresh from his hat-trick at the weekend, but after sublimely chesting down Joe Jacobson’s diagonal pass, he miscued his shot and it bounced up for Aaron Chapman to parry behind for a corner.

It was a fast start to the game on a slick pitch, with the ball zipping around on a wet surface, and Stanley began to adapt to the conditions smartly with Sean McConville in particular standing out as their creative spark as the front three of Mallik Wilks, Kayden Jackson and Billy Kee looked for a way through.

Matt Bloomfield fired over from distance before Stanley’s first real chance arrived on 27 minutes when Kayden Jackson jinked onto his right foot and fired low, seeing his shot deflect towards the opposite corner but Scott Brown was equal to it.

McConville curled a free-kick over the bar from 20 yards before Brown reacted sharply to deny Wilks’ close range effort with his legs after a clever cross from that man McConville.

Billy Kee drilled over the top before the half-time whistle, and Wanderers made a change at the interval with Marcus Bean replacing Craig Mackail-Smith in a switch which saw Ebere Eze move into the frontline.

Bean fired wide on the half-volley after a free-kick was only half-cleared, before McConville curled one narrowly wide from distance and Cowan-Hall did likewise at the other end.

McConville went closer with another long-range effort which was palmed clear by Brown, but the only goal of the game arrived on 70 minutes in scrappy fashion. McConville’s free-kick was poor but a miscued clearance saw the ball remain in danger and Billy Kee poked it through a crowd of players for Mark Hughes to sidefoot home.

Luke O’Nien and Adebayo Akinfenwa sent headers goalwards in a late attempt to salvage a draw but Chapman held comfortably on both occasions and it was Stanley who were able to celebrate a first home win over the Chairboys in 11 years.
