Jacobson looking to recreate former glories in FA Cup third round

6 December 2016

Joe Jacobson says he would love to continue the Chairboys' FA Cup adventure when they face a home tie in the third round of the competition.

Wycombe were drawn against either Stourbridge or Northampton at Adams Park having won away at Portsmouth and Chesterfield in the previous rounds, and the left-back sees the tie as an opportunity to make further progress.

"We've got a home tie against either a League 1 side or a non-league side but we see them both as winnable games for us," he told Wycombe Sound last night.

"The fans and perhaps the chairman and directors at the club would like a big tie against Premier League teams to help the finances and get us to a more stable place, but this is a chance for us to compete and have the opportunity to get through.

"I've had great memories in the FA Cup; it gives teams in the lower leagues a chance to show off what they've got. It was always a dream of mine to play in the competition and I had a good run when I got to the quarter-finals with Bristol Rovers in League 1, which was amazing for the club and for the whole city at the time."

Jacobson played his part in the 5-0 demolition of Chesterfield in round two, providing the crosses which led to the first and fourth goals, and singled out hat-trick hero Scott Kashket for special praise.

"We kept trying to score goals, whatever the score was in the game at the time, and that shows the confidence we have at the club.

"Scotty came in in August and no-one knew too much about him, but he arrived with nothing to lose and he's become our top goalscorer. His goal to game ratio is unbelievable and we've now got four or five strikers that each have something different about them. He's confident, great with the ball and he's scoring and assisting goals too.

"We had a lot of injuries earlier in the year but now we're all back in the squad, everything is starting to settle and we're clicking as a team."

With thanks to Wycombe Sound and Harry Burton-Hayes.
