The Big Match Preview: Wycombe vs Shrewsbury

All you need to know.

Team news, tickets, travel and more..

Wycombe Wanderers vs Shrewsbury Town
Saturday 24th November 2018, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park
Referee: Andy Haines

Two teams in form lock horns again for the first time in four seasons, with Shrewsbury vying to end a 24-year wait for a league win over the Chairboys by notching up a fourth successive victory over Gareth Ainsworth's men, who themselves are seeking a fifth home league triumph in a row.

Let's start with Wycombe, who are doing better than merely keeping their heads above water in League 1, following up the excellent 1-0 win over Peterborough with a superb showing in the 1-1 draw at Sunderland last week.

Constant chopping and changing of the side due to injuries and player ineligibilities hasn't dented the consistency of results and performances, on home turf at least, and recent showings will see them enter the clash with the Shrews with nothing to fear.

The visitors made a slow start in their attempts to replicate last year's fantastic assault on the promotion picture, which ultimately ended in play-off heartache, the departure of boss Paul Hurst and several key players. An inconsistent run of form cost new manager John Askey his job, but caretaker Danny Coyne has made a fine job of steering them to three successive victories, restoring belief, confidence and a feelgood factor around the place.

Team news

Nathan Tyson returned from injury last week and will be in contention again, while David Stockdale will make his debut in goal after joining on an emergency loan. Joe Jacobson and Adam El-Abd should face their former club, but Bryn Morris is ineligible, and late decisions will be made on the fitness of Matt Bloomfield, Adebayo Akinfenwa, Michael Harriman and Darius Charles.

Shrewsbury could shuffle the pack after a quick turnaround from their last game on Wednesday, where they reportedly picked up knocks to a few first-team stars, but Danny Coyne will be keen to maintain momentum with former Blues Anthony Grant, Josh Laurent, Aaron Holloway and Lee Angol all in line to make a return to Adams Park when they travel south today (Friday).

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 3-2 Shrewsbury

Read the report as the Chairboys secured a fifth straight league win at home.

24 November 2018

Wycombe extended their impressive run to make it five consecutive league wins at Adams Park as they ran out 3-2 winners over Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

Gareth Ainsworth made three changes to the side who earned a heroic 1-1 draw at Sunderland last weekend. Nick Freeman came in for Bryn Morris who was unable to play against his parent club, David Stockdale replaced previous emergency loan goalkeeper Matt Ingram in goal and Nathan Tyson made his first start of the season having recovered from injury to replace Randall Williams.

Shrewsbury named an unchanged side for a successive weekend as caretaker manager Danny Coyne didn’t feel the need to make changes to the side who eased past Salford 3-1 in midweek and defeated Rochdale 3-2 in the league last weekend.

Coming into the game, Shrewsbury hadn’t defeated the Chairboys in the league in their last 20 attempts, a record that dates back to January 1994 and were looking to put that record to bed early on when they took the lead inside four minutes.

Good work from Okenabirhie down the right earned himself the chance to work space for the cross. The cross came in high and was met by the head of former Wanderers striker Aaron Holloway who headed down towards Stockdale’s left and the former Fulham shot-stopper wasn’t able to scramble the ball away in time, conceding inside five minutes of his debut.

The Shrews were not ahead for long though as just seven minutes later, Wanderers captain and former Shrewsbury defender Adam El-Abd equalised with a unique solo effort. The visitors cleared the initial ball in and thought they had relieved the pressure but Freeman managed to head the ball back into the danger zone. It fell to El-Abd just inside the box and the Egyptian was able to chest the ball down, swivel and volley on the stretch to rifle the ball past Steve Arnold in the Shrewsbury goal.

Wycombe were buoyed by their equaliser and continued to threaten with Alex Samuel and Jason McCarthy linking up well down the right before McCarthy played a low ball in towards the near-post forcing Luke Waterfall to make a desperate challenge and clear.

The game appeared to simmer down as neither side looked to get a grip-hold of the game. That was until Wycombe earned themselves a corner just five minutes before half-time. Left-back, Joe Jacobsen went over to take the corner on the left which was cleared initially but found its way back to the defender. With one touch to set himself, he whipped in a wonder strike on his weaker right foot which flew in to the top corner leaving Arnold no chance.

The game looked to have sparked back into life as Shrewsbury were unfortunate not to equalise just minutes later. Norburn’s corner was aimed towards the back-post where Shrews defender, Waterfall, found himself in acres of space but his diving header crashed against the near-post and Wycombe were able to clear.

After an entertaining opening and closing minutes in the first-half, the second began slowly with Wycombe looking the slightly better side. Tyson’s flicked header went close before Freeman forced a strong save by Arnold with his curled effort.

The hosts soon found their two-goal cushion though as Freeman picked out Alex Samuel in space inside the box and the striker, who signed a two-and-a-half year contract extension earlier in the month, was able to show his composure and slot the ball inside the near-post.

Wycombe thought they could finally breathe a little but just two minutes later found the deficit halved once more. Good pressure from Norburn allowed him to nip in and play the ball in for Okenabirhie who was able to slide the ball past Stockdale and bring Shrewsbury back into the game with their first real chance in the second half and it was all to play for with 15 minutes to go.

The comeback, however, was not to be completed by the visitors as Wycombe were able to close the game out and maintain their winning record at home in the league.

The result sees the Chairboys rise to 12th and Shrewsbury drop one place in 17th. Wycombe now head to Accrington on Tuesday with a chance to rise into the top ten while the Shrews host south coast strugglers Plymouth Argyle.

Attendance: 4,598 (450 Shrewsbury).
