The Big Match Preview: Fleetwood vs Wycombe

Team news, tickets, travel and more

Fleetwood Town vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 2nd October 2018, k.o. 7.45pm
Highbury Stadium
Referee: Scott Oldham


Gareth Ainsworth takes his side to the scene of his first away league win as Wycombe manager six years ago, looking to leave with another three points to right the wrongs of Saturday's loss to Southend United.

Recent displays, particularly away from home, have been generally encouraging though the Chairboys are still looking for their second league victory of the campaign, and go head-to-head with a Fleetwood side who've picked up just one win in their last eight in all competitions.

It's still very early days for new boss Joey Barton as he oversees a period of transition for the club with Championship aspirations, and they've shown their credentials with a 5-0 thrashing of Scunthorpe and wins over Oxford and Bradford.

However, both sides will be eager to start the month on a triumphant note this evening, with those Wanderers fans making the trip hoping to return home happy in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Team News
Gareth Ainsworth has no fresh injury woes but could make changes after the 3-2 loss to Southend, with Sam Saunders hoping to return following an illness. Joe Jacobson is in line for his 200th appearance for the Chairboys.

Fleetwood have James Wallace and Ashley Hunter available again following suspension, while Paddy Madden should be fit to play after an illness, but Dean Marney, Craig Morgan and Conor McAleny are doubts. Tommy Spurr came off injured in the weekend loss to Barnsley.

Man in the Middle
Scott Oldham took charge of his first game this season on Saturday; Stevenage's 1-0 win at Carlisle.

Travel
By Adrian Wood

POST CODE: FY7 6TX

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to the northbound M6 (M40 and M42). Leave the M6 at Junction 32 and take the M55 towards Blackpool. Exit the M55 at Junction 3 and take the A585 towards Fleetwood. On the outskirts of the town you will come to a roundabout with Blackpool and Fylde College on your left. Continue straight on towards Fleetwood but after the roundabout take the first left into Copse Road. After about a mile as you pass Fleetwood Fire station, branch left and turn left on to Radcliffe Road (going back on yourself but in parallel with Copse Road). Then take the next right into Stanley Road and the stadium is at the bottom of this road on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 223 (approx. journey time a little under 4 hours)

Recommended area for car parking
There are a limited number of parking spaces available at the ground but street parking is permitted on the surrounding roads.

Using the train?
This trip is of course difficult due to the evening kick-off. For anyone planning to go by train the most convenient mainline station is Blackpool North. This station though is over seven miles away. Buses numbers 14 and 1 leave Blackpool town centre every 10 minutes and pass close to the stadium. Journey time is about 30 minutes and the fare £2. Alternatively, you can use one of the famous Blackpool trams. The fare is £2.50 and journey time approximately 40 minutes. The journey from London Euston to Blackpool North takes around 3 hours (with a change at Preston).

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 5,327 (seating for 2,701). The stadium is modern having been completely re-built over recent years. Away fans are mainly housed in the Percy Ronson terrace at one end of the stadium.  This terrace is covered, free from supporting pillars, and gives a good view. Visiting supporters are also allocated 300 seats in the Parkside Stand (opened in 2011). If the away support is small then only the Parkside seats will be made available. The FTFC phone number is 01253 775080.

Spare time on your hands?
Jim's Sports Bar at the ground normally admits away fans but gets very popular on match days. It is located at the back of the Memorial Stand. The Highbury Club located adjacent to the away turnstiles does not allow in visiting supporters. Fleetwood itself is about a 10-15-minute walk away. Here there are plenty of pubs including a Wetherspoon outlet the Thomas Drummond on London Street. Alcohol is available inside the stadium but only to away fans sitting in the Parkside Stand.

Match Reports

Report: Fleetwood 1-1 Wycombe

Read the report from Highbury Stadium.

2 October 2018

Wycombe left Fleetwood with a deserved point as Adebayo Akinfenwa cancelled out Paddy Madden’s first half opener at Highbury Stadium.

Gareth Ainsworth made three changes to his starting XI from the weekend, with Michael Harriman, Randell Williams and Craig Mackail-Smith coming into the side, replacing Joe Jacobson, Scott Kashket, and Fred Onyedinma.

Three minutes gone and there was big chance for Wanderers to open the scoring as Randell Williams latched on to a short header back from Ashley Eastham to his keeper. Williams nicked in and tried to prod it past Alex Cairns who came racing out, but he did enough to block the shot.

Ten minutes later and Ryan Allsop produced a superb bit of goalkeeping to keep the scores level. Wycombe let themselves down at the back as a low cross found Wes Burns who was denied by the legs of the keeper, and then Madden's fierce strike on the rebound was wonderfully tipped away.

Wanderers responded well to being pushed back on the front foot early doors and the newly found javelin-like throw-in ability of Randell Williams was seen as their weapon of choice.

Fleetwood and Madden would have the opener before the first half was out however as the former Scunthorpe man put the home side ahead on 37 minutes. Out of nothing, an inch-perfect cross from the right was glanced into the bottom corner by the prolific striker.

Half-time: Fleetwood 1-0 Wycombe

Gareth Ainsworth would have demanded a reaction from his players during the interval, and that’s exactly what he got as Mackail-Smith piled forward and was tripped, possibly in the box, but the ref gave the free-kick just outside. Eastham was booked and Bryn Morris hit the wall with resulting free-kick on 49 minutes.

Akinfenwa rose highest one minute later as Morris whipped in a cross, the Beast hung in the air and just put the ball past the post.

The big man’s next chance would be a goal, as he drew the Chairboys level with a superb finish on 56 minutes. The ball was lumped forward and Bayo made it three goals in three games as he thumped home.

That gave Wanderers an even bigger lift and they took the game to The Cod Army. Morris's volley deflected narrowly wide for a corner on 59 minutes.

66 minutes gone and it was nearly a stunning goal from Dominic Gape as a spectacular strike from 25-yards was met with an even better finger tip save onto the bar from Cairns.

13 minutes left to play and James Wallace's low cross was headed past the post by Madden as he dived in after stealing a march on Darius Charles.

Gareth Ainsworth rolled the dice, introducing Paris Cowan-Hall and Curtis Thompson into the mix in place of Morris and Williams as both sides went in search of a winner.

Sido Jombati saw his fifth yellow of the season in the closing stages as he tripped Madden in a dangerous area. Thankfully, Ryan Taylor whipped the resulting free-kick just passed the post.

Fred Onyedinma replaced Mackail-Smith in added time, but 1-1 was how it finished in a game of two halves. Fleetwood deserved the half-time lead given to them by Madden's brilliant header, but the Chairboys improved and earned their point thanks to Akinfenwa's leveller.
