All you need to know.

Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Wycombe Wanderers vs Barnet
Saturday 30th September 2017, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park
Referee: Ross Joyce

It’s been nine months since the Chairboys last recorded three back-to-back victories, but Gareth Ainsworth’s men have momentum behind them and are on the hunt for three more points to put the icing on the cake of a superb week so far.

Victories over Colchester and Crewe have highlighted the strength of Wanderers’ weaponry but also the determination in the character of the squad to recover from setbacks to see the job through.

Next in their sights are Barnet, who’ve only ever lost once at Adams Park in the EFL but arrive on the back of a tough run of form, not aided by a spate of injuries which have hindered Rossi Eames’s side from reaching a consistent level of performances and results.

However, their three defeats in the last four games have all been by the narrowest of margins and they’ll hope to have fortune fall on their side this time around as they seek a repeat of their 2-0 win in south Bucks last season.

Team news
Dan Scarr is being assessed after leaving the pitch in Tuesday’s win due to an injury, while Matt Bloomfield, Paris Cowan-Hall and Luke O’Nien were unavailable in midweek along with the long-term absentee Scott Kashket.

Barnet are missing strikers John Akinde and Dave Tarpey, as well as keeper Jamie Stephens, full-backs Elliott Johnson and Richard Brindley, and midfielder Curtis Weston.

Man in the middle
There’ve been 49 yellow cards, one red card and a whopping 38 goals in Ross Joyce’s 10 games as referee so far this season.

He was last involved in a Chairboys fixture in March, when he officiated the 1-0 defeat to Notts County at Adams Park.

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 3-1 Barnet

Akinfenwa, Umerah and Freeman on target.

30 September 2017

Wanderers recorded their third win in a week with a comfortable yet impressive 3-1 triumph over Barnet at Adams Park.

The Bees began brightly but once Adebayo Akinfenwa headed the hosts in front, there was no way back and Josh Umerah and Nick Freeman extended the lead before Mauro Vilhete netted a consolation for the visitors.

Gareth Ainsworth made one change to the side that started in the dramatic 3-2 win over Crewe in midweek, with Anthony Stewart taking the place of Dan Scarr in defence.

With grey skies looming overhead, Wanderers looked to produce a bright start to the game in front of a crowd bolstered by the addition of hundreds of juniors taking advantage of a special ‘Quid-A-Kid’ opportunity.

An early Michael Harriman cross sailed just over the head of Adebayo Akinfenwa before Mauro Vilhete tested the handling of Scott Brown with a low shot from distance, but the keeper was equal to it.

Then Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro saw the ball find kindly for him as he contested an aerial battle with Joe Jacobson, but the striker’s shot from a tight angle was well blocked by Brown before Jacobson hooked it clear.

But the game entered a quiet spell before Wanderers were indebted to Jacobson and Brown for their interventions in quick succession, as Shaquile Coulthirst twice drilled goalwards. The first was turned away from inside the six-yard box by the left-back while the second was aimed towards the near post, though Brown tipped it behind.

Brown was at it again as the Bees got on top, after David Tutonda charged towards the area unchallenged, and the ball broke loose for Andre Blackman whose low shot was denied by the left boot of Brown.

However, Wanderers were in front moments later, against the run of play. Ebere Eze benefitted from his first opportunity to drive forward with the ball and he teed up Nathan Tyson, whose lofted cross was bread and butter for Adebayo Akinfenwa to head towards the bottom corner of Craig Ross’ near post.

The Bees responded well with a dangerous cross from the left begging for a finish, but the ball ran safe before Craig Mackail-Smith held up a long ball beautifully only for his shot to deflect to safety after he paused looking for options.

Nathan Tyson headed wide from a Jacobson corner, but Barnet should have been level when Andre Blackman’s cross arrived on the forehead of Akpa Akpro, who missed the target.

Akinfenwa had a chance to double his tally for the game but couldn’t find the right side of the post with a cushioned header from Jacobson’s free-kick.

Sam Saunders went closer moments later, seizing on Michael Nelson’s mistake to charge towards the area but his low shot was deflected narrowly wide of the far post for a corner.

Barnet introduced Simeon Akinola for Shaquile Coulthirst at the break but Wanderers were the ones on the attack at the beginning of the second period, seeing a chance for Craig Mackail-Smith just evade the striker as the ball wouldn’t sit kindly eight yards out, while Anthony Stewart’s curling effort from distance needed to be palmed behind.

Then Barnet survived two handball shouts as the pressure intensified, prompting boss Rossi Eames into a second change with Jack Taylor replacing Wesley Fonguck.

Gareth Ainsworth responded with Josh Umerah taking the place of Craig Mackail-Smith in the frontline, and the match became a little stretched with the hosts going close to a second goal in a spell of pinball which followed Joe Jacobson’s corner.

But the lead was doubled on 65 minutes, and it was a special occasion for Charlton loanee Umerah. Brown’s long punt forward arrived perfectly on the chest of Akinfenwa, and as he turned towards goal to let fly, the ball bounced into the path of Umerah who found the net on the spin, celebrating his first ever EFL goal.

With confidence oozing through the Blues, Akinfenwa sent a fizzing low shot just wide of Ross’ right-hand post, though they need to keep things tight at the other end and Simeon Akinola should have done better with a misplaced header from a left-wing cross, before Tutonda drilled over from the corner of the box.

Nick Freeman replaced Nathan Tyson in attack on 74 minutes, and it wasn’t long until he added his name to the scoresheet in emphatic style. Wycombe had Barnet trapped inside their own area and Freeman made easy work of holding off Ricardo Santos before almost taking the net off with a blistering strike which cannoned off the crossbar on its way.

At that point a 4-0 or 5-0 looked on the cards but the hosts were to be denied a clean sheet when Simeon Akinola’s shot looped favourably into the path of Mauro Vilhere, whose first-time effort gave Brown no chance from inside the six-yard box.

Their final throw of the dice saw Ephron Mason-Clarke replace Jamal Campbell-Ryce, while Wycombe swapped Dominic Gape for Ebere Eze in the middle.

But there was to be no further drama in the four minutes of added time as Wycombe celebrated a win which takes them to 21 points from 11 games played.

Speaking of the reciprocal Quid-A-Kid offer, Wanderers’ General Manager Michael Davies explains: “We have a strong family ethos which we want to extend far and wide, to away fans as well as home fans, and are looking forward to welcoming as many young Barnet fans as possible - along with their families - to Adams Park.

“By extending the offer for home fans to all sections of the ground,  we hope this will encourage more local football supporters from Wycombe and the surrounding area to watch the game and experience the fantastic atmosphere we have here.

“Our pre-match fan zone with the marquee, music, the Blues BBQ and kids activities offers an excellent day out for all football supporters to enjoy.

“Likewise, The Hive has some of the best facilities for away fans in the division, and being just a short distance from High Wycombe, we hope that many of our fans will take up the opportunity to support the team away from home in March.

“I’d like to thank Barnet for agreeing to work with us on this idea to help boost the attendance at both fixtures and we may seek to repeat this offer for other fixtures in the future depending on its success.”

The ‘Quid A Kid’ offer applies in all areas of the stadium for juniors aged 17 and under (a maximum of four juniors per paying adult). Tickets can be purchased in advance or on arrival at the stadium, though all adult, senior and young adult tickets qualify for a £2 discount when bought before the day of the game at Adams Park.
