Team news, tickets, travel and more...

Peterborough United vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 21st January 2020, kick-off 7.45pm
Weston Homes Stadium
Referee: Charles Breakspear

Fresh from ending a five-game winless streak with a dramatic late victory over Rochdale on Saturday, Wanderers now head up the A1 to meet a Peterborough outfit who are looking to end an unwanted sequence of their own, having collected just two points from their last six league games.

Posh's ambitious chairman and manager had great expectations of a title assault following some eye-catching recruitment in the summer, but their ninth defeat of the league campaign at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday left them with plenty of catching up to do, sitting in 10th place and 10 points adrift of the top two.

The hosts are embroiled in plenty of transfer speculation surrounding their talismanic forwards Ivan Toney and Marcus Maddision, while boss Ferguson has hinted at ringing the changes in his team to freshen up his starting line-up for the visit of the Blues.

Gareth Ainsworth's men will carry momentum from Saturday's triumph into the visit to the Weston Homes Stadium, where they haven't won since 2006, while the seven most recent encounters have yielded 30 goals which could be an indicator of another goal frenzy tonight.

Ticket News.jpg

Wycombe have sold around 200 tickets in advance, but there will be plenty available to buy on arrival.

Peterborough have decided to extend their 'advance' ticket prices so there will not be an increase.

There will be cash turnstiles at the away end, but fans wishing to pay by card should do so at the ticket office.

Prices are as follows.

Adults (22-64): £26
Seniors (65+): £21
Under 22s: £17
Under 18s: £10
Under 12s: £5

*Away tickets made available for collection can be picked up from Adams Park until 12pm on the day of the game, or from the home club's stadium from 6.15pm.

Team News.jpg

Gareth Ainsworth has no fresh injury concerns, so could name an unchanged side for the game at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Peterborough could recall Siriki Dembele, Nathan Thompson and Mark Beevers in a bid to reverse their troublesome form, but Frazer Blake-Tracy, Idris Kanu and Josh Knight remain sidelined through injury.

Wycombe will play in yellow.

The referee is Charles Breakspear, who last officiated a Wycombe game in April - the 1-0 win over Walsall at Adams Park.

POST CODE: PE2 8AL

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the M40 towards London and at Junction 1A take the northbound M25 (signed Watford). Leave the M25 at Junction 21A and take the A405 (signed St Albans). After 2.1 miles at the Park Tree roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the A414 (signed Hatfield). Continue on the A414 for almost 5 miles and then join the A1(M) motorway, signed ‘The North’. Exit the A1 at junction 17 and follow signs to Peterborough (A1139) onto the A1139 Fletton Parkway. Exit the Fletton Parkway at junction 3. At roundabout turn left onto the A1260 Nene Parkway. Take first exit and at roundabout turn right. Turn left at the next roundabout onto Shrewsbury Avenue. At T-junction after half a mile, turn right into the A605 Oundle Road. Follow road for one mile. Access to the stadium is straight on at traffic lights just before the town bridge.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 98 (a little under 2 hours)

Recommended area for car parking
On a match day, there is no public car parking at The Weston Homes stadium. However, there is parking for cars in the Pleasure Fair Meadow council and Railworld car parks opposite the stadium (adjacent to the Town bridge on Oundle Road). There is street parking to be found on side streets further up Oundle Road (going away from London Road).

Using the train?
There is a regular service out of London Kings Cross the fastest journey time being 46 minutes.  From the station turn right and head towards the main road (Bourges Boulevard). Turn right and head towards the big roundabout. Use the pedestrian underpass and head past Asda. At the traffic lights, turn right and the ground is situated on the left-hand side over the town bridge. A return is possible midweek, for example the 22:32 (arrives KX at 23:25).

Whats On.jpg

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 15,314. Away fans are housed in Block A Upper of the Main North Stand (towards the Motorpoint Stand). Turnstile numbers are 2,3 and 4. The view is quite good, although the facilities inside (such as the refreshment area and toilets) are on the small side and are quite basic. In the upper part of the stand, the seating is wooden, giving an indication of the age of the stand. 

Time on your hands?
The ground is within walking distance (10 minutes) of the city centre where there are plenty of good pubs to be found. Most have doormen present on match days but seem happy enough to admit away fans. Close to the ground is an unusual drinking outlet called “Charters” - a former Dutch barge just a few minutes’ walk away London Road. A little further away is the Palmerston Arms on Oundle Road which apparently has up to 10 real ales.

Match Reports

Report: Peterborough 4-0 Wycombe

First-half red card and penalty proves costly for the Wanderers.

22 January 2020

A first-half red card shown to Giles Phillips - and the award of a penalty to Peterborough - was the turning point as Wanderers went down 4-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday night.

Ivan Toney converted the spot-kick and added another later on, with Siriki Dembele and Jack Taylor also on target for Darren Ferguson's men who collected their first win in six.

The home side looked the brightest in the opening stages of the game, exploiting the space down the left wing but failing to find that cutting edge in the final third. Despite this early pressure, the Chairboys managed to stand strong and clear their lines. 

As the fifteen minute mark approached, possession was still being shared but with the home side threatening on the attack once again. This time, Dan Butler crossed into the area from the right looking for the run of Ivan Toney but the Wanderers keeper gathered the danger well. 

The deadlock was broken on the 23rd minute from the spot. Following a suspected push by Giles Phillips in the Posh area, he was dismissed by referee Charles Breakspear leaving Ivan Toney to slot home from the spot.

However, the 10-men of Wycombe didn’t let the man disadvantage hinder them at this point, Josh Parker picked up the knockdown from Adebayo Akinfenwa brilliantly allowing him to let rip from distance but he couldn’t quite keep the shot down. 

With the half time whistle approaching, Gareth Ainsworth’s men continued to drive for a first half equaliser. Joe Jacobson stung the palms of Christy Pym in the home net with a free-kick just outside the box with their luck not seeming to change. 

Matt Bloomfield was next to test the Posh keeper, forcing a strong save with a long-range effort. Moments later at the other end the travelling Wanderers were punished, Siriki Dembele placing the ball past Ryan Allsop to double the home side’s advantage. 

The Chairboys keeper reacted well to numerous spells of danger from Posh to keep them out. Allsop being forced to make a well placed save to deny a close range shot from Sam Szmodics. The home side took their two goal advantage into the break. 

Despite a fairly bright start to the second period from Wanderers, Jack Taylor was left in space to put a right-footed finish into the back of the net on the 53rd minute. 

Filled with confidence after netting in front of the packed terrace at the Weston Homes Stadium, Taylor looked to double his tally for the evening. Commanding work in the middle of the park allowed for a chance at goal which was soon denied by the Chairboys defence. 

Jason McCarthy aimed to craft out a chance with just 15 minutes left on the clock, his free-kick fell to the feet of Curtis Thomspon but his shot was blocked in a crowded penalty area. 

At the other end, Toney found a rebound at his feet in front of goal and he made no mistake to score his second of the game and worsen the Chairboys disappointment in the 73rd minute. 

Unable to pull one back on a chilly Tuesday evening in Cambridgeshire, the Chairboys fell to a convincing defeat against strong opposition on the night.
