Havant & Waterlooville vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 21st July 2018, k.o. 3pm
Westleigh Park

Pre-season friendly number three sees the Chairboys travel to National League side Havant & Waterlooville with two weeks to go until the start of the 2018/19 season.

Like Wanderers, Havant are preparing for life in a new division after being crowned champions of the National League South in 2017/18.

Saturday will be the Hawks' fifth pre-season friendly after winning three of their last four. Their only pre-season defeat came at home to Sky Bet League One side Portsmouth in a 2-1 loss for Lee Bradbury's side.

The two sides last met five years previously in a pre-season friendly at Westleigh Park. Wycombe were the victors that day as Dean Morgan scored in a 1-0 win for the Chairboys.

Team news
The game will give Gareth Ainsworth the opportunity to get more minutes in the legs of the majority of his squad ahead for the upcoming campaign, with no new injuries to report after the 1-0 midweek loss to Brentford.

The fixture could also hand Ainsworth another chance to cast an eye over some of the trialists that featured in Tuesday's pre-season friendly vs the Bees.

Wycombe will be in their new home strip for the fixture, with the yellow goalkeeper kit.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for concessions, and can be purchased on arrival.
