First Time Fans Guide
Away Fans Guide

As the UK enters statistically the most depressing time of the year, Wanderers are ready to restore the feelgood factor to Adams Park with its 'Anything But Blue' matchday for the visit of Rochdale in League 1 on Saturday.

Both clubs will be wearing change strips - Wycombe in yellow, Dale in pink - as part of an initiative in support of the Chiltern branch of the Samaritans, bringing colour to Adams Park on a day when the Chairboys are looking to return to winning ways after a challenging New Year period which yielded just one point from five matches.

They meet a Rochdale outfit who've picked up form in 2020 and held Premier League outfit Newcastle to a draw in the recent FA Cup meeting, culminating in their 4-1 defeat in the replay on Tuesday night.

Wanderers recorded their first away win of the season - in yellow - at Rochdale in September and will eye a first 'double' of the campaign, to continue the phenomenal home record which has seen attendances rise significantly in support of Ainsworth and his men.

Team News.jpg

Jack Grimmer and Fred Onyedinma are edging closer to contention while there are no fresh injury concerns.

Rochdale will have Paul McShane available after the defender extended his stay with the club in midweek, but new loan signing Tyler Smith isn't yet available for action.
 
Man in the Middle
Craig Hicks’ last involvement in a Wycombe fixture was the 2-0 loss at Luton in the FA Cup first round last season.

This term he’s shown a total of 59 yellow and four red cards in 20 matches in the middle.

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 2-1 Rochdale

Jacobson wins it from the spot with virtually the last kick.

18 January 2020

Joe Jacobson scored a last-gasp penalty to secure a return to winning ways for the Wanderers, coming from behind to defeat Rochdale 2-1 at Adams Park.

The visitors took an early lead when Ian Henderson charged down Ryan Allsop's clearance and saw the fall cannon into the net, but McCarthy equalised with a floated cross-shot which beat keeper Jay Lynch to restore parity.

Wanderers had the better of the second period and finally earned their rewards when Paul Smyth was fouled in the box by Luke Matheson, and Jacobson stroked home the penalty in the dying seconds.

Team news saw a surprise at right-back with Jason McCarthy being thrust straight into the starting XI after his return on loan from Millwall was announced just 90 minutes before kick-off, while Josh Parker earned a start up top.

The start to the game matched the dazzling nature of the yellow and pink strips worn by the two sides on the ‘Anything But Blue’ matchday in support of the Chiltern Samaritans, with Jimmy Ryan stinging the palms of Ryan Allsop with a drive from outside the box, before Joe Jacobson tested Jay Lynch with two dangerous deliveries and Jason McCarthy’s low cross caused panic with David Wheeler almost converting.

But then the game entered a lull which was broken only by a goal completely out of the blue, and a stroke of fortune for the visitors. Ian Henderson is a prolific scorer of goals for Dale but he won’t have known much about this one, jumping to block Ryan Allsop’s clearance and blocking the ball into the back of the net to give his side the lead.

Darius Charles looped a header over the bar from another McCarthy cross as Wycombe pushed for an equaliser, but Wanderers were fortunate not to concede a second when Henderson’s low shot bobbled awkwardly off the turf and Allsop could only parry into the path of Calvin Andrew, who blasted wide from close range.

So if fortune was the name of the game, then it’s up to you to decide whether Jason McCarthy intended to find the net with a dangerous cross from the right wing, but he cared not one jot as it sailed over the head of Jay Lynch and into the net to spark jubilant celebrations from the right-back.

It came at the end of a sparkling move – the second in two minutes – as Wycombe began to get into the groove, with Nick Freeman firing wide after jinking past his man 20 yards out.

There was another scare when Andrew headed wide from a dangerous corner, and at the other end, Freeman volleyed over after Lynch fisted a Jacobson corner into his path.

Freeman had the first chance of the second period, firing over after Dom Gape’s fierce low cross-shot cannoned into his path, and then Josh Parker couldn’t adjust in time to convert Joe Jacobson’s cross after it was helped on by David Wheeler.

Wheeler came to the rescue at the other end, hammering clear after Rhys Norrington-Davies’ low ball appeared destined to land at the feet of a Dale attacker, and from the resulting corner, Andrew headed straight at Allsop.

Wanderers wanted a penalty for a handball when Adebayo Akinfenwa’s header following a clever short-corner was blocked en route to goal, but after a corner was given, Akinfenwa’s effort was again denied by the face of Jordan Williams.

The hosts’ first change came on 73 minutes, with Paul Smyth taking David Wheeler’s place, while Dale brought on Fabio Tavares for Jimmy Ryan at the same time.

McCarthy excelled down the right to carve open the next chance, defying the non-award of a free-kick for a foul on him by continuing his surge into the box and teeing up Akinfenwa, whose low shot was turned over the bar by Paul McShane, and Lynch held Darius Charles’ header on the line from the corner.

Dominic Gape departed with a knock on 86 minutes as Nnamdi Ofoborh took his place, and Matt Bloomfield replaced Curtis Thompson shortly after.

With the game heading for a draw, Paul Smyth darted into the box and drew a foul from young right-back Luke Matheson, and Joe Jacobson converted the spot-kick to banish the blues well and truly as the home fans celebrated all three points.
