Accrington Stanley vs Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 21st November 2017, k.o. 7.45pm
The Wham Stadium
Referee: Ross Joyce

Wycombe make the long trip to Accrington on Tuesday night looking to build on their impressive 4-0 win over Crawley at the weekend.

An opener from Ebere Eze, before a hat-trick from Craig Mackail-Smith ensured the Blues were back to winning ways in Sky Bet League Two, piling the pressure on the teams above them.

One of those sides ahead of them is their next opponents. John Coleman's Stanley are unbeaten in their last four league games and sit in third position in the league standings. An 88th minute equaliser from Mallik Wilks rescued a point at home to Newport at the weekend which meant they go into tonight's fixture four points ahead of the Chairboys.

Team News
Gareth Ainsworth has reported no new injuries with only Michael Harriman expected to be out beyond Christmas, as Scott Kashket, Nathan Tyson and Josh Umerah edge closer to a return.

Accrington manager, John Coleman confirmed that Seamus Conneely remains a big doubt following his groin tear in training last week.

Man in the middle
Ross Joyce has shown 83 yellow and one red card in his 19 games as a referee this season. He has officiated the Chairboys once already this campaign - the 3-1 home win over Barnet in September.

Wanderers will be wearing their first-choice strip for the game at Accrington.

Adults: £20
Concessions (+64): £15
Students: £15

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Take the normal route to northbound M6 (M40, M42). Leave the motorway at J29 and take the M65 (signed Burnley, Blackburn). Leave the M65 at Junction 7, taking the Clitheroe turn off the roundabout (A6185). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights opposite Clayton Business Park, following the A678 (sign posted Padiham). Follow the road over the canal bridge to the next set of traffic lights. Turn right again going over the motorway bridge and towards Accrington on the A680.  Carry straight on at the next set of lights with the Greyhound pub on your right.  Follow the road as it bends to the right and then take the first left after the Crown pub into Livingstone Road.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 211 (average journey time 3 hours 25 minutes)

Suggested car parking area
There is very limited parking available at the William Dyer Electrical Stand end. The price per game is £5 and can be pre-booked by phoning 01254 356950. Otherwise car parking is available on the streets surrounding the club, and for a small donation, on land adjacent to the ground belonging to a local amateur side.

Fancy using the train?
As yet again this is a midweek fixture this is not an option as the last London bound train off Accrington is at 20:21hrs. For anyone travelling up by rail the best route is to use Virgin West Coast out of Euston changing at Preston. Journey time is a little over 3 hours. Accrington station is about a mile away from the ground – walking time around 20 minutes.

Facilities for away fans
Visitors are mostly housed in the Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground. This can hold up to 1,800 fans after this area was recently extended. In addition some seats are available in the Whinney Hill Stand. This has a mixture of seating and terrace and has the benefit of some cover, unlike the Coppice Terrace which is open to the elements. The official ASFC programme, containing all latest news, interviews, features and reports is available around the ground priced £3.
