The Big Match Preview: Stevenage

16 September 2016

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two clash with Stevenage at Adams Park (k.o. 3pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs Stevenage
Saturday 17th September 2016, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park, HP12 4HJ
Referee: Brendan Malone

Three back-to-back away matches have been and gone - now it's time for Wanderers to return to form at Adams Park on Saturday.

Their last outing on home soil ended in disappointment with the 2-0 derby day defeat to Colchester and while the subsequent hat-trick of games on the road have shown glimpses of promise - plus six goals to show for their efforts - Gareth Ainsworth's men have been unable to add points to their tally and will look to make a fresh start against their Hertfordshire neighbours.

Stevenage have endured mixed fortunes with a heavily revamped squad but Darren Sarll's men arrive with two consecutive home wins under their belt, with the capture of loan forward Tyler Walker injecting an added attacking threat.

They succumbed to a 1-0 defeat on their last visit when Luke O'Nien secured victory for the Chairboys at Adams Park in March, but he remains sidelined for this encounter, although there are no fresh injury concerns for the Wycombe boss.
