The Big Match Preview: Wycombe vs Barnsley

All you need to know.

Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Wycombe Wanderers vs Barnsley
Saturday 8th December 2018, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park
Referee: Antony Coggins

The Chairboys and the Tykes were two divisions apart last season; now they meet for the first time in 14 years separated by just five places in the League 1 table following a phenomenal run of form by Gareth Ainsworth's men.

Wanderers have climbed five places to 10th since ending October with a 3-2 loss at Walsall, going on to overcome Peterborough, Shrewsbury and Accrington - and draw with Sunderland - during an excellent November which saw Ainsworth awarded with a Manager of the Month nomination.

Barnsley have adapted quickly to life in League 1 after suffering relegation last year, and in Kieffer Moore and Cauley Woodrow they boast two of the division's most in-form strikers - a threat similar to that carried by Peterborough a month ago, which was so excellently thwarted by the Wycombe backline.

With a sixth successive home win in their sights, the Blues will hand a debut to Stephen Henderson in goal, while the Tykes are eager for a third away victory in four games to complement their unbeaten home record so far.

Team news

Stephen Henderson arrived on an emergency loan from Nottingham Forest this week and will play in goal for the Blues, while Matt Bloomfield and Adebayo Akinfenwa have resumed outdoor training and could be in contention.

Barnsley have been preparing for Wycombe's "very simple, not bad" approach according to boss Daniel Stendel, who is without the suspended Dimitri Cavare and the injured trio of Kenny Dougall, Ryan Hedges and Lloyd Isgrove.

Man in the middle
Antony Coggins officiated Wycombe's Carabao Cup tie with Forest Green in August, showing two yellow cards, and has dished out 75 bookings and three red cards in 19 games this season.

Carols at the Park
Wanderers are delighted to welcome a number of local organisations who will be performing Christmas carols from 1.30pm in the Printkick Fan Zone at Adams Park.

The club would like to thank chaplain Benedict Musola for pulling the event together, which involves contributions from the Pastures Church (Downley), Wycombe Community Gospel Choir, Wycombe Workplace Chaplaincy, St Andrews Bookshop, The Salvation Army, Love Wycombe and also Rachael Samuel – the wife of Chairboys star Alex – who will be singing at around 2pm.

Meanwhile, the Salvation Army will also be pitchside to perform a number of carols during the half-time interval.

There's some new items in the shop just in time for Christmas - have a look at what's on offer. Open from 10am.

Dominic Gape and Fred Onyedinma star on the cover while inside there's a recap of previous encounters with the Tykes, thoughts of Gareth Ainsworth, Matt Bloomfield, Alex Samuel, Scott Kashket, Nathan Tyson, Nick Tunney, Ian Baker and much more.

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 1-0 Barnsley

Williams makes it six home league wins in a row.

8 December 2018

Randell Williams' second-half strike secured another excellent three points for the Wanderers as they overcame Barnsley at Adams Park.

The winger rifled home from outside the box after Joe Jacobson's corner was half-cleared, and the Blues stood firm to collect a club record-breaking sixth straight home win in League 1.

Gareth Ainsworth made four changes from the side that won 2-1 at Accrington, with Stephen Henderson making his debut between the sticks while Joe Jacobson, Randell Williams and Nathan Tyson came into the side as Michael Harriman, Nick Freeman and Craig Mackail-Smith made way.

Alex Mowatt tested Henderson’s handling with an early shot from range that the Tykes hoped would set the tempo for the match, but instead they came up against a well-drilled Wanderers outfit who looked threatening in attack with the pacy quartet of Tyson, Williams, Fred Onyedinma and Alex Samuel causing problems on a regular basis.

Adam El-Abd couldn’t get enough power on a header to beat Adam Davies from Jacobson’s deep corner, while the Blues felt they should have had a penalty on 15 minutes when Samuel was shoved from behind, though ref Antony Coggins waved away the appeals.

Onyedinma and Dominic Gape fly off-target and Samuel glanced a low cross wide of the far post as Wycombe pushed for the opener, while at the other end, George Moncur was punished for simulation in the box before booting the ball away in anger.

The last chance came in stoppage time, when Ethan Pinnock’s header from a corner was expertly tipped behind by Henderson, before the hosts began the second period in impressive fashion, drawing a miracle save from Adam Davies when Randell Williams turned a low cross goalwards.

Onyedinma continued to threaten and the Tykes’ hopes weren’t helped when they lost Cauley Woodrow to injury as they prepared to defend a corner. From the resulting delivery, the ball was half-cleared to Randell Williams who thrashed the ball home from the edge of the D to make the breakthrough.

Barnsley reacted immediately, making a second change as Brad Potts came off the bench, and with the wind behind them, looked to apply pressure via a series of set pieces which ultimately led to nothing.

Their final substitution saw Zeki Fryers replaced by Mamadou Thiam on 75 minutes, before El-Abd was thwarted by Davies with another back-post header.

The Tykes had a shot blocked in a congested area following a dangerous corner, and Kieffer Moore sent a low shot agonisingly wide in stoppage time as the men in red sought an equaliser, which almost came via the boot of Ethan Pinnock, who looped over a chance from Thiam’s left-wing cross.

That was that, and the referee’s whistle signalled another fine win – a sixth home league victory in succession, which is the club’s best ever sequence in the third tier.
