Doncaster Rovers vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 29th February 2020 (kick off 3pm)
Keepmoat Stadium
Referee: David Rock

A first 'leap day' fixture for the Chairboys since 1992 takes them to Doncaster Rovers eyeing a fourth league double of the season, ahead of a two-week break from the action.

Gareth Ainsworth signed a new long-term deal with the club this week and takes his side north on the back of two successive wins over struggling Bolton and Tranmere, but this time comes up against a play-off hopeful in Doncaster, managed by a good friend of his in Darren Moore.

They sit 11th in the table, seven points off the top six, but have only won three of their last nine outings, losing the last two.

All eyes will be on former Rovers star Adebayo Akinfenwa as he seeks a record-breaking 54th goal for the Blues, which would take him top of the goalscoring charts - ahead of another ex-Doncaster man in Nathan Tyson - in Wanderers' EFL era.

POST CODE: DN4 5JW

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the westbound M40 to Junction 10 and follow A43 towards Northampton to pick up northbound M1. At Junction 32 take the eastbound M18 (sign posted Doncaster/Hull). Leave the M18 at Junction 3 and take the A6182 towards Doncaster (the stadium is well signposted from Junction 3 and is about 1½ miles away). Go past a retail park on your left and at the next traffic lights (which has the Lakeside Pub visible behind it) turn left onto White Rose Way. The Lakeside Shopping Centre is now on your right (the stadium is located directly behind the shopping centre). At the next island turn right onto the industrial estate and after passing the Tesco distribution centre on your right, turn right at the bottom of the road and the stadium is further down on your left. 

Mileage from High Wycombe = 164 (approx. journey time 2 hours 45 mins)

Recommended area for car parking
There are just 1,000 car parking spaces at the stadium that cost £5 per car. There are 60 parking spaces reserved for disabled fans, which must be booked prior to match day. Alternatively, there a number of companies on the nearby industrial park that offer match day parking at around £3 - £4 per vehicle. If you happen to arrive a couple of hours before kickoff then there is also some free street parking to be had in this area.

Using the train?
I have been notified that there are no services to or from London Kings Cross on Saturday 29 February and Sunday 1 March. Available journeys to and from London will go via a different route and will take significantly longer than usual. For anyone going by rail, the station is just less than two miles away and a bus service is available from the Transport Interchange. If you do have time on your hands and you fancy the walk (around 25-30 minutes) then as you come out of the station turn right and then keep straight on this road (the A6182 Trafford Way) and you will eventually reach the stadium complex on your left.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 15,231 (all seated). Away fans are in the North Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 3,344 fans can be accommodated. The view of the playing action, leg room, and facilities are all good, although fans are set well back from the pitch. Note that cash is not accepted at the turnstiles. Away tickets can be purchased from the Club Doncaster Academy Reception in the North West corner of the Stadium.

Time on your hands?
With the stadium located on the outskirts of the town there are not many hostelries nearby. One option however is the “Lakeside”. This is a Beefeater outlet near Stadium Way. Coming recommended by DRFC is “The Leopard” in West St just a four-minute walk from the train station. This has received good reviews from away fans. Finally, the Belle Vue Bar is situated on the outside of the West Stand and welcomes visiting fans.

Match Reports

Report: Doncaster 3-1 Wycombe

Akinfenwa's record-breaking goal not enough to prevent defeat in South Yorkshire.

29 February 2020

A 3-1 defeat on the road against Doncaster Rovers came in the game that Adebayo Akinfenwa scored his record-breaking goal in a Wycombe shirt during the English Football League (EFL) era.

Niall Ennis opened the scoring for the hosts and, although Akinfenwa drilled home his 54th goal for the Blues - taking him above Nathan Tyson into top spot - Wanderers fell to defeat when Kieran Sadlier tapped home and Jason McCarthy diverted a cross into his own net.

The travelling Chairboys began the game with plenty of intent on the attack. The first chance fell to Alex Samuel. Going down under a challenge made by a Rovers player, the resulting free-kick was whipped into the area by Jason McCarthy with Samuel attempting a bicycle kick from close range but the ball evaded his boots.

As the 15-minute mark approached, the same duo threatened again. This time, McCarthy’s low cross from the right found Samuel in front of goal and able to brush the ball at Seny Deing in the Rovers net.

Moments later, Paul Smyth got in the act as he looked to put the Wanderers ahead. The ball fell kindly to the midfielder in space, he struck the ball twice at Dieng between the sticks but couldn’t find a way past the keeper.

The home side spent little time inside the Chairboys half in the opening half an hour, however, a chance fell their way in the shape of a free-kick on the right of the box. The set piece was delivered low into the row of attacking Rovers men in front of goal, Devante Cole was looking to make a clinical connection but the ball eventually rolled into the palms of Ryan Allsop.

Struggling to find their rhythm in the game, the ball fell to Cole once again on the edge of the area allowing him to twist and turn and set himself up for a shot but unable to do the latter allowed the Wycombe defence to clear the danger.

Despite the Chairboys' best defensive efforts, on the stroke of half time the home side found a breakthrough. The ball found the feet of Niall Ennis in front of goal who tapped the ball past Ryan Allsop to give Rovers the advantage. 

Rovers began the second period with pace going forward, setting up a brilliant opportunity for Jacob Ramsey to slot the ball beyond Allsop but he couldn't t find a clean connection and the chance was gone.

The home side continued to press for a second goal. The ball found the head of Tom Anderson in a good area but his loss of balance allowed David Wheeler to read the movement of the ball and hook it clear of danger.

However, the Chairboys managed to find an equaliser on the 67th minute. Adebayo Akinfenwa made an impact from the bench to finish the ball coolly past the Rover’s keeper and become the Chairboys all-time leading scorer in the EFL era.

This lead wasn’t to last long. Ben Whiteman whipped a free-kick towards the back post where Kieran Sadlier was left unmarked to fire into the bottom corner and allow Rovers to regain the advantage.

Rovers added to their lead inside the last ten minutes of normal time. Substitute Jason Lokilo delivered a cross into the area and the ball was diverted into the back of the net by a McCarthy.

Gareth Ainsworth’s men now have a week away from the action before making the journey North to Burton Albion in two weeks’ time.
