The Big Match Preview: Hartlepool United vs Wycombe

The Chairboys head up North ready for FA Cup action.

Team news, tickets and more...

Hartlepool United vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 6th November 2021 (KO 3pm)
Victoria Park
Referee: Darren Drysdale

Wycombe make the long trip up to Hartlepool United for the First Round of the FA Cup on Saturday. Gareth Ainsworth's side will be looking to bounce back after Tuesday night's tough 4-1 loss against an Ipswich squad who are on the up in League One.

Saturday's opponents Hartlepool currently sit 10th in League Two with three wins and two losses from their last five matches. Their most recent result came in the Papa John's Trophy in the form of a 1-0 win over Everton U21s, while their last League Two encounter saw Leyton Orient put five in the net with no response.

Wycombe and Hartlepool are no strangers, having met 16 times before, but the Chairboys can look back on those encounters more positively than Pools, having won 10 and drawn 2.

Team news

With a big run of games coming up in the league, Ainsworth could look to make use of this year's squad depth in this opening FA Cup game. The Chairboys have no fresh injury concerns following the Ipswich Town game.

Hartlepool may also look to rotate their squad as they have been doing in the Papa John's Trophy. Tom Crawford and Martin Smith were particular standouts in the Everton fixture, despite being fringe players for the most of the ordinary season so far. Caretaker manager Antony Sweeney will not have Fela Olomola or Tyler Burey available in what seem like ongoing issues.


Tickets are available to be pre-purchase online or at Adams Park until 12pm on Friday, and can be purchased on the day at Hartlepool. We have been advised by Hartlepool United that if purchasing on the day, to arrive as early as possible, as the ticket office gets very busy. Please also note that there is a £1 price increase when buying at the ground.

Match Reports

Report: Hartlepool 2-2 Wycombe

Blues force replay in the FA Cup

6 November 2021

Wanderers twice recovered from a goal down to force a replay against Hartlepool United in the first round of the FA Cup.

Goals from Chris Forino and a penalty from Joe Jacobson saw the Chairboys cancel out goals from Hartlepool’s Mark Cullen and Luke Molyneux to send the sides to Adams Park to battle it out again for a place in the Second Round of the FA Cup.

Wycombe started brightly and had the first chance, a Jordan Obita long throw was met by Forino, but his header never troubled Jonathan Mitchell in the Hartlepool goal.

Soon after, Sullay Kaikai was slipped through by Daryl Horgan, but his low cross was unable to be turned home by Sam Vokes in a tricky position.

A few moments later, Hartlepool had a golden chance to take the lead. The lively Molyneux curled a ball in from the right, but somehow Neil Byrne could not poke the ball home with the goal at his mercy.

Pools continued to expose the wide channels, and this time a low cross from David Ferguson found Cullen but he could only turn his shot over the bar.

Hartlepool’s pressure paid off just before half time. Mark Cullen was slipped through by the Matty Daly in the box, and he calmly placed the ball past Adam Przybek into the back of the net to send the home side into the break with the lead.

A breathless second half followed. First Horgan drove forward and slid through Kaikai, whose low cross found Vokes but his shot was blocked for a corner.

Hartlepool responded quickly, breaking down the right flank, Reagan Ogle beating Obita for pace and putting a low cross in for Molyneux, however the striker could only slide the ball wide of the post.

The Chairboys got the equaliser they’d been pushing for on 63 minutes, with superb work from Curtis Thompson who seemed boxed in by the corner flag, but he managed to curl in a delightful ball which met the head of Forino to level up the tie.

Just two minutes after the equaliser, Hartlepool retook the lead. Good work down the left saw a ball crossed in for an unmarked Molyneux to turn home to make it 2-1.

Wycombe were living dangerously and were nearly 3-1 behind when a ball reached Ogle on the edge of the box, only for his powerful drive to be well saved by Przybek.

Wycombe continued to fight and won a penalty with 18 minutes to play. Forino leapt highest for a header in the Pools box but was taken out by in the process by goalkeeper Mitchell and following a consultation with his linesman the spot kick was given. Jacobson stepped up and placed the ball beautifully into the top left-hand corner of the net to level the proceedings once more.

Wycombe came on strong in the final 15 minutes, but it was still either teams game to win. Jason McCarthy flashed a cross across the face of goal, and a quick counter attack by Horgan and Anis Mehmeti saw the ball eventually cleared following panic in the Pools box.

Wycombe piled the pressure on in added time to try and find the elusive winner, but in the end, there was nothing to separate the sides and they will do it all again in a replay at Adams Park.
