MK Dons vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 5th October 2021 (KO 7:00pm)
Stadium MK
Referee: Christopher Pollard

It's another trip to Stadium MK tonight as the Chairboys take on MK Dons in the Papa John's Trophy group stage. Wycombe come into the fixture off the back of a 4-3 win at home against Morecambe, as a second half turnaround and goals from Daryl Horgan, Sam Vokes, Ryan Tafazolli and Curtis Thompson sealed all three points.

As for MK, they were on the receiving end of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Doncaster Rovers, meaning they dropped below Wycombe in the table to sixth.

It's been less than two weeks since Wycombe last faced MK in League One, where a controverisal red card decision to Anthony Stewart proved decisive, as Troy Parrott's penalty was all that seperated the two sides. However after a successful appeal, Stewart had his suspension rescinded and was made available for the midweek tie with Shrewsbury.

As for the Papa John's Trophy last time out, Wycombe slipped to a 3-1 to defeat to Aston Villa U21s, where Connor Parsons bagged his debut goal, whilst MK beat Burton Albion 2-1.

 

Team news

Gareth Ainsworth will be without Daryl Horgan and Sullay Kaikai for this game, who have both been selected to represent their nations for the upcoming set of international fixtures.

Aside from that, there are no new injuries to report on, but Ainsworth has expressed that he will be excited to call on players from the development squad, meaning the likes of Anis Mehmeti, Olly Pendlebury and Chris Forino are likely to feature from the off.

MK manager Liam Manning is also eager to give minutes to his young players, as well as those in need of match fitness.

However they will be without the previous encounter's goalscorer Parrott, who has joined up with the Republic of Ireland squad with Horgan.

 

Referee

Christopher Pollard takes charge of this evening's tie.

The last time he refereed a Chairboys game was back in 2019, when Wycombe lost to Fulham U21s in the EFL Trophy. No cards were given out that evening.

This season, Pollard has only officiated one match so far - a tie between Forest Green Rovers and Northampton Town in the same competition.

 

Tickets

Tickets are only available to buy on the night from Stadium MK. Prices for adults are £10, and £3 for U18s. These will be available from MK's Box Office.

Match Reports

Report: MK Dons 2-1 Wycombe

Blues out of Papa John's Trophy after defeat at MK.

5 October 2021

Wanderers went down 2-1 to MK Dons in the group stage of the Papa John's Trophy - a result that guarantees their exit from the competition.

MK opened the scoring early on through Hiram Boateng only for Brandon Hanlan to equalise soon after, but a game of few chances was settled in the second period by Zak Jules.

Two much-changed but strong line-ups took to the field with Wanderers including the likes of Joe Jacobson, Jordan Obita and David Wheeler in their starting XI, while youngsters Connor Parsons, Olly Pendlebury and Adam Przybek were given a chance to shine.

However it was the Dons who struck first, inside five minutes, when Mo Eisa was freed down the right wing and delivered an inch-perfect low cross for Hiram Boateng, who tucked home with ease.

But the scores were level just three minutes later, with almost a replica of the opening goal as Parsons latched on to a through-ball down the left and whipped in a ball for Brandon Hanlan to convert from six yards.

The action swung back to the other end, where Przybek denied Eisa's downward header with an excellent save away to his right, before his opposite number Franco Ravizzoli made a hash of a clearance, with Dominic Gape winning back possession and the chance ultimately fell to Anis Mehmeti, whose low goalbound shot was cleared for a corner.

Wanderers came close on 30 minutes, when Jacobson's corner was tipped on by Ravizzoli and Obita could only hammer over the bar on the stretch.

But that was the final chance of a first half that started with such promise, and ended with a whimper, with the scores level.

Hanlan had the first chance of the second half, striking wide of the far post from a narrow angle, and then David Wheeler's header from a corner took a nick and flashed over the bar.

Wheeler was booked for a foul on Josh Martin before MK swapped Mo Eisa with Charlie Brown, and they restored their lead with 62 minutes played as Zak Jules peeled off round the back from a free-kick and sidefooted home first time.

Another MK change arrived when Peter Kiosk entered the fray soon after, and Wycombe brought Tjay de Barr into the attack as Brandon Hanlan made way.

Curtis Thompson was introduced in midfield just as the rain began to hammer down with eight minutes remaining, and the Blues looked to apply pressure with Jordan Obita crossing invitingly for de Barr, whose headed went over the top.

Then de Barr was just unable to make contact with Wheeler's knockdown as the clock ticked towards 90, but unlike Saturday there was to be no stoppage time drama as Blues bowed out of the competition with one group stage game still to play.
