Plymouth Argyle vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 21st August 2018, k.o. 7.45pm
Home Park
Referee: Ollie Yates


Matchday four of the new Sky Bet League 1 season sets up a long Tuesday night trip to Devon for the Wanderers faithful, as Gareth Ainsworth's side go in search of their first victory to right the wrongs of their 2-1 loss to Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Scott Kashket netted the Chairboys' first league goal of the new campaign to offer some cheer at the end of the game, and that must act as a springboard for a better start to the match tonight, when they meet another winless side in Argyle.

Home Park has been a relatively happy hunting ground for Ainsworth, who has only lost twice as a manager in 14 visits to Devon (both at Exeter), with memories of the play-off semi-final first leg victory, Barry Richardson's heroics and Myles Weston's last-minute equaliser evoked when this fixture comes around.

But the current generation of Wycombe stars will be looking to create another special memory by producing the club's first win in League 1 since March 2012 - coincidentally in the same county, when Paul Hayes starred in a 3-1 win at Exeter.

Team News
Darius Charles has travelled with the squad as he nears a return to fitness while there are no fresh injury worries, giving Ainsworth decisions to make in terms of selection following Saturday's setback.

Plymouth are without the suspended Jamie Ness but former Chairboys Tafari Moore and Joel Grant are likely to feature.

Man in the Middle
Ollie Yates has shown 10 yellow cards in three games so far and only officiated in seven EFL games last season.

His last involvement in a Wycombe game was the 0-0 draw at Blackpool in August 2016.

Kit
Wycombe will be in their orange and grey change strip.

Travel
By Adrian Wood

POST CODE: PL2 3DQ

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). Continue forward at J31. Keep in right hand lanes and then continue forward onto the A38. Continue on the A38 Devon Expressway until the junction with the A386, signposted Home Park, City Centre, Ferry Port, and Tavistock. At the roundabout as you come off the A38, take the second exit A386, signposted Plymouth Argyle Home Park, Ferry Port. Stay on this road for approximately a mile and the stadium is on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 222 (approx. journey time 3 hours 25 mins)

Recommended area for car parking
There is a good sized, council-run, car-park right outside the stadium. The good thing is that it is free to use. It is operated on a 'first in before the game, first out after the game basis'. Be wary of parking on streets in the nearby area. Some require parking permits, some do not. Be extra aware of parking restrictions in the Life Centre next to the ground, as there are frequently enforcement officers on hand to clamp down on illegal parking. There is some street parking if you drive past the ground, heading away from the city centre.

Using the train?
Great Western Railway operate a regular direct service out of London Paddington, fastest journey time 3 hours. For the return there is an overnight service timed to depart Plymouth at 23:54 arriving back in the capital at 05:03 (Weds morning).

Facilities for away fans
Home Park is seeing some further investment at the moment with the refurbishment of the Grandstand on one side of the ground. This means that this stand that dates back to 1952 will be closed for the 2018/19 season, whilst major works are undertaken, including putting in place a new roof. Away fans are housed in the Barn Park End, which is all seated and covered. As you would expect from a modern stand (constructed in 2001/02) the facilities and views of the playing action are both good.

Spare time on your hands?
The most popular pub with visiting fans appears to be the Britannia in Wolseley Road. This is a large Wetherspoons outlet, about a 10-minute walk from the ground (from the car park outside the football ground, turn left and the pub is down the road on the right-hand corner). It tends to get very busy with fans queuing to get in but the doormen are pretty efficient so you shouldn’t have to wait too long to get in. Near to the pub is normally a van selling pasties. Opposite the Britannia is the Embassy Club which is best avoided by away fans. Around a 15-minute walk away from Home Park (going back in the direction of the A38) is the Cherry Tree pub on Ham Drive. A similar distance away (but going in the opposite direction across the Park) is the Hyde Park Social Club which welcomes visiting supporters. Otherwise, alcohol is available within the ground.

Match Reports

Report: Plymouth 1-1 Wycombe

Read the report from Home Park.

21 August 2018

It was a tale of two halves at Home Park as Wycombe came away from Plymouth Argyle with a point after Matt Bloomfield cancelled out Freddie Ladapo’s early opener in a stunning second half display from the Chairboys.

Gareth Ainsworth made two changes to his side from the weekend, with Anthony Stewart and Bryn Morris coming in for Curtis Thompson and Adebayo Akinfenwa as the Chairboys lined up in a 4-3-3 formation. Craig Mackail-Smith came inside to lead the line and Michael Harriman moved up to the right forward position.

There was an early warning sign for the Wycombe defence as a smartly dinked cross saw Ladapo rise above his man but plant a header over the bar.

Plymouth and Ladapo would take the lead with the next attack though; the striker latching on to a long ball and lofting it over Ryan Allsop as he and Adam El-Abd hesitated with just four minutes on the clock.

It was an assured response from the visitors and a great save from Argyle keeper Matt Macey denied Bloomfield bringing the Chairboys level on 15 minutes. Morris turned inside nicely, fed Bloomfield, whose powerful shot swerved in the area but the shot-stopper parried it excellently.

Back Wanderers came, and good break saw Craig Mackail-Smith sprint down the right, deliver a crossfield ball which was met by Bloomfield, nicked away from him to Harriman, whose curling shot was straight at Macey on 21 minutes.

Allsop was quick off his line to stop Ladapo getting in behind again just past the half-hour mark; coming out of his box and denying the striker with a slide tackle. Soon after Antoni Sarcevic almost latched on to a ball played through the ‘corridor of uncertainty’ but fluffed his lines at the back stick.

Wanderers received an injury blow just before the break as Adam El-Abd pulled up holding his hamstring. After a break in play after receiving treatment, the Wycombe skipper was unable to continue and was replaced by Sido Jombati.

Half-time: Plymouth 1-0 Wycombe

Wycombe went on the front foot from the restart, eyeing Randell Williams down the right as a possible route of success. Following some neat build-up play down that side, the ball was played infield to Morris who let fly from 25-yards which whistled past the post on 48 minutes.

Wycombe had to be wary of the counter-attack as they pressed for an equaliser. Harriman's pass to an onside Bloomfield was snuffed out before Argyle broke and Graham Carey's low shot was held by Allsop.

Mackail-Smith was battling hard to force an opening for Wanderers. The striker hit the outside of the post on the hour mark as he chased a lost cause with the defender and keeper dithering.

CMS was then inches away from connecting to a delicious Morris ball across the face of goal. Wycombe were getting better and better as the game wore on and Argyle were retreating closer to the ropes.

Brilliant work from Williams to keep the ball in play on the byline, allowed him to tee up Morris whose goalbound effort was blocked which would have taken the net off.

Ainsworth boosted his attack by adding Scott Kashket and Akinfenwa to the play in place of Harriman and Williams, and the pressure mounted from the Chairboys and Macey provided a stunning save on 73 minutes to deny Morris once more. Good build-up play culminated in Akinfenwa laying up Morris with a seemingly unstoppable shot. Macey had other ideas.

Argyle made a couple changes themselves in a bid to change the balance of play, and it appeared to have worked as they forced a couple of important blocks from the Wycombe backline.

But then came a deserved equaliser for the Chairboys. Akinfenwa played a huge role, controlling it, rolling into the path of Mr Wycombe, Bloomfield, who tucked it home from a tight angle.

Then with three left to play it was so almost a Wycombe winner. Outstanding play from McCarthy saw the full-back drive forward, threading it through to Kashket who turned and clipped it towards the bottom corner and it came off the inside of the post -  an inch away!

Mackail-Smith then thought he had an injury time winner which was what his performance would have deserved, but his bundle over the line was ruled out for a marginal offside.

So Wycombe were made to settle for a point, in a real ‘coming of age’ performance at Home Park Stadium.
