The Big Match Preview: Carlisle vs Wycombe

All you need to know ahead of tonight's game.

17 October 2017

Team news, tickets, travel and more.

Carlisle United vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 17th October 2017, k.o. 7.45pm
Brunton Park
Referee: Scott Duncan

It took the league leaders’ grittiest resolve to end Wanderers’ four game winning run at the weekend, but with performances reaching a superb standard on a consistent basis, the Chairboys carry plenty of belief into tonight’s clash at Brunton Park as they seek to continue their long unbeaten run on their travels.

February was the last time Wycombe tasted defeat away from home, at a period where Carlisle were on a seemingly unstoppable charge to League 1, but Keith Curle’s men suffered a drastic dip in form and ultimately lost out in the play-off semi-finals to Exeter.

Their bid to avenge that disappointment has begun slower than they might have liked, currently sitting 14th in the table, and while they have the second highest number of away wins in the division, they’ve only once at home, back in August.

They’ll be looking to put that right while Wanderers won’t want to face the long coach journey home with anything less than a point to show for their efforts.

Team news
Keith Curle could recall Jamie Devitt to the starting line-up after he netted the winner from the bench at Colchester last time out, while midfielder Jason Kennedy is still building up fitness after a spell out injured. Steven Rigg could earn a second debut, having rejoined the club recently.

Wycombe could only field six substitutes on Saturday and will be without the suspended Marcus Bean, while Gareth Ainsworth was assessing the fitness of Sam Saunders and Josh Umerah over the weekend in the hope of having either or both available again.

Head-to-head
Wanderers hold the upper hand with seven wins from the 20 meetings in all competitions, which includes the play-off semi-finals in 1994.

However Carlisle won both meetings last year, including the 1-0 win at Brunton Park in September 2016. They hadn’t won in seven encounters prior to that.

Man in the middle
Scott Duncan has never officiated in a Wycombe game before, despite making his EFL debut in 2012.

So far this season he’s shown 26 yellow and two red cards in 12 games.

Kit
Wanderers will be wearing their second-choice Utilita-sponsored orange strip this evening.

Match Reports

Report: Carlisle 3-3 Wycombe

Wycombe rescue a point late on at Brunton Park.

17 October 2017

A stoppage time header from Paris Cowan-Hall rescued Wycombe a point in a 3-3 draw at Carlisle United.

The home side raced into the lead after four minutes when Reggie Lambe headed in from a corner, before Jamie Devitt doubled Carlisle's advantage from the spot on 38 minutes.

Sam Saunders gave the Chairboys hope going into the break with a sublime free kick from 20-yards in first-half stoppage time, before Adebayo Akinfenwa completed the turnaround on 72 minutes with his seventh of the season.

It looked like Wycombe had undone all their hard work on 84 minutes as Lambe bagged a brace, but up stepped Cowan-Hall to head in with just 30 seconds of additional time remaining.

Gareth Ainsworth made two changes for the long trip north, with Dan Scarr and Sam Saunders coming in for Anthony Stewart and the suspended Marcus Bean.

Carlisle came out the blocks quickly and forced an early corner as Dominic Gape intercepted the ball from Shaun Miller. Direct from the resulting set-piece, Carlisle took the lead as Lambe found himself unmarked at the back post and gladly headed home.

Wycombe attempted to respond quickly as Akinfenwa nodded wide from Sido Jombati's cross from midway inside the Carlisle half on 7 minutes.

Craig Mackail-Smith and Bayo were beginning to find their rhythm - CMS saw his shot saved by Jack Bonham on 21' from Akinfenwa's knockdown before going through one-on-one on 33 minutes from the Beast's clever flick on, only for James Brown to capitalise on his heavy touch and clear the danger.

Just as the Chairboys were starting to impose themselves on the game, they received a sucker-punch when referee Scott Duncan pointed to the spot after Scarr was adjudged to have fouled Shaun Miller on 34 minutes. Saunders was booked for protesting what looked like a harsh penalty, before Devitt slotted the spot-kick past Brown, with the keeper going to his left, and the ball going to his right.

Two additonal minutes were held up in the first period with Wycombe left with a mountain to climb. Ebere Eze used trickery to create a yard on the edge before being brought down 20-yards from goal.

Saunders and Jacobson, the usual culprits, stood over it, and it was the former who gave the Chairboys hope by lifitng it up and over the wall and into the far-left corner - game on at the break!

Half-time: Carlisle 2-1 Wycombe

Ainsworth's men started as they meant to go on, racing out of the traps inisde the opening 10 minutes of the restart.

It was the home side who would fashion the second period's first real opportunity however, as Nicky Adams struck wide in space as Carlisle broke.

Brown had to be at the races to deny the home side on the counter again on 62' - as he clawed away Adams' cross just after Joe Jacobson put in a well-timed tackle to deny Shaun Miller.

Saunders tried his luck from 35-yards with a quick free kick to and put egg on the face od Bonham - though the keeper was equal to this one.

Eze's last piece of action saw him hit a tame half-volley which Bonham collected on 67 minutes, before being replaced by Cowan-Hall.

72 minutes on the clock - Come in Akinfenwa with a food and drink header at the back post. Gape showed good vision to thread it through to Freeman, he then got a yard and found the big man to level the scores.

Southwell and Bloomfield entered the proceedings in place of Mackail-Smith and Saunders, before Cowan-Hall fired a cross/shot which flew wide of the far post with just over 10 left to play.

It looked as though it was set up for Wycombe to bag a winner - Carlisle on the other hand, had other ideas. The ball came out to Lambe at the back post, and with Sido held up by sub Jason Kennedy, the winger had time to pick his spot and find the far-corner with 6 minutes of normal time remaining.

Wycombe refused to lie down though, despite the setback, and almost came back again on 88 minutes as Akinfenwa side-footed a half-volley over from Bloomfield chest-down.

Carlisle attempted to run the clock down as the fourth official held up five additional minutes to be played.

One last roll of the dice, Cowan-Hall earned the Chairboys a corner. Jacobson whipped it in with Brown up, Bonham punched it out to Cowan-Hall and his shot was blocked behind for another corner.

Then, a moment of magic. Cowan-Hall rose highest to find the corner, sparking ecstatic scenes from the 126 Wycombe fans that travelled. Wycombe had rescued a point and remain unbeaten on the road since February.

Attendance: 3,562 (126 Wycombe)
