Wycombe Wanderers vs Gillingham
Saturday 9th October 2021, KO 3pm
Adams Park
Sky Bet League 1
Referee: Kevin Friend

Chairboys are back in action at Adams Park looking to extend their perfect home start to the season in League 1, taking on Gillingham in just one of four games taking place in the third tier over the international weekend.

With the Premier League and Championship taking a break, there'll be plenty of eyes on Wanderers' efforts in overcoming a Gills side who've won just twice so far in the league, but boss Steve Evans' teams have always proved a tough obstacle in meetings down the years.

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Brandon Hanlan could face their former club for the Blues as they bid to replicate their goalscoring heroics of last week's dramatic 4-3 victory over Morecambe, though boss Gareth Ainsworth will no doubt have been sharpening up the squad's defensive shape in training throughout the week.

The visitors won 2-0 at Cambridge on their last away day and were victorious at Adams Park on their most recent visit in February 2019.

Team news
Nick Freeman (knee) remains the only long-term absentee for the Chairboys, while young defenders Jack Wakely, Max Ram, James Clark and Chris Forino are all carrying knocks that kept them out of the midweek game at MK Dons in the Papa John's Trophy. Dominic Gape is fit again, having come through Tuesday's game unscathed, while many first-team regulars were rested in readiness for the league battle. Sullay Kaikai and Daryl Horgan are away on international duty.

Ryan Jackson and Mustapha Carayol could return for Gillingham after injury, but Dan Phillips is still out.

Man in the middle
Premier League official Kevin Friend has refereed two top-flight games this term, and returns to Adams Park for the first time since overseeing the hotly-debated 2-1 loss to Derby County last season.

He first refereed a Wycombe game in 2004, and had teeth knocked out in an accidental collision with Matt Bloomfield the following season.

Match Reports

Report: Wycombe 2-0 Gillingham

Two strikes in the first ten minutes secure all three points against Gillingham.

9 October 2021

A first half howitzer from Garath McCleary and a strike from Brandon Hanlan against his former club sealed a solid victory over Gillingham.

Gareth Ainsworth made just the one change from last week’s thriller- Brandon Hanlan making his first league start since joining, replacing Daryl Horgan who’s away on international duty.

Wycombe opened the scoring after just two minutes of play. David Stockdale’s long pass was flicked on by Sam Vokes to Garath McCleary, who nutmegged the defender with his first touch before firing in an emphatic finish to bring his tally to five for the season.

Just a few minutes later, it was two. Thompson’s initial shot wasn’t dealt with properly by the Gillingham defence and Hanlan was on hand to sweep the ball home at the back post.

Just after 25 minutes, Gillingham were handed a way back into the match. Scowen’s crunching tackle on Dempsey was deemed to have been inside the box, but to the delight of the Chairboys fans, Oliver’s penalty ended up in The Terrace.

The Gills nearly pulled a goal back five minutes before the interval, but a combination of Stockdale at full stretch and a last ditch clearance from Jacobson forced the ball out for a corner.

Half-time: Wycombe 2-0 Gillingham.

A slow-starting second half was almost kicked into life by Joe Jacobson, but his free-kick narrowly flashed over the visitors’ crossbar.

A mix-up in defence for the Chairboys nearly gifted Gillingham a goal, but Stockdale managed to claw Stewart’s wayward header away from goal.

Vokes nearly bagged Wycombe’s third, but Jamie Cumming managed to reach the number 9’s header to force a corner.

The striker was involved in nearly grabbing a third for Wycombe- putting ‘keeper Cumming under immense pressure before Hanlan unleashed an effort but Gills’ No.1 managed to tip it onto the post.

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Anis Mehmeti were introduced with ten to play, with the former instantly contributing at the back with a couple of stern headers from Gills set-pieces.

A solid display at the back ensured that the Chairboys kept their third league clean sheet of the season, as well as maintaining the 100% winning record at Adams Park.

Full-time: Wycombe 2-0 Gillingham.
