Jacobson & O'Nien preview cup clash with Fulham

8 August 2017

Goalscorers on Saturday, Luke O'Nien and Joe Jacobson are hoping Wanderers can end their Carabao Cup curse tonight vs Fulham at Adams Park (k.o. 7.45pm).

Wycombe have not progressed to the second round of the League Cup since 2011, when the Blues defeated Colchester United on penalties.

Having run Fulham close in the same stage of the compeition two years ago in a narrow 1-0 defeat, O'Nien is hoping the Chairboys can come out on top this time around.

"I remember watching the game when we last played Fulham here in the cup and we played really well and we did again last year against Bristol City," he said.

“Our record might not be very good in the cup over the last few years but we could have very easily come away with something from both of those games.

“So the results in the cup haven’t been coming, but we’ll look to put that right on Tuesday.”

After putting in a man of the match display in the league opener against a physical Lincoln City side with one goal and one assist, Jacobson is expecting a different type of challenge from the Cottagers.

 “Fulham will be a completely different test," the full-back stated.

“Lincoln felt like a bit of a battering ram coming at us and I think Fulham will be the opposite, they will want to play complete football and keep it on the deck a lot.

“Obviously they have got some fantastic players and it is going to be a real test for us, but we’ll be prepared and come up with a game plan where we can try and match them and use our own strengths against them and hopefully get the win.”
