Fleetwood Town v Wycombe Wanderers
Tuesday 20th August 2019 (kick off 7.45pm)
Highbury Stadium
Referee: Ollie Yates

It's one of the longest trips of the season, but the Chairboys will have had a spring in every step of their journey north on Monday after making it seven points from three league games following Saturday's last-gasp success over MK Dons.

Now they look to build momentum against a Fleetwood side they took four points off last season, earning a point during another midweek encounter last October before claiming a 1-0 victory on the final day of the campaign.

Joey Barton's side won their first two games of the new term but fell to defeat at Doncaster on Saturday, and will look to make amends quickly as they seek a play-off push following a mid-table finish last time around.

Wanderers are unbeaten in midweek away games since 2017 and can be confident of returning back down the M6 with a positive result given the strength of their performances so far this term, with plenty of attacking options at Gareth Ainsworth's disposal.

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Fleetwood is on the Fylde coast, with Blackpool a few miles south on Lancashire’s coastline. The stadium is located on Highbury Avenue in the port. Leave the M6 at J32 and take the M55 towards Blackpool. Exit the M55 at J3 and take the A585 towards Fleetwood. On the outskirts of the town you will come to a roundabout with Blackpool and Fylde College on your left. Continue straight on towards Fleetwood but after the roundabout take the first left into Copse Road. After about a mile as you pass Fleetwood Fire station, branch left and turn left on to Radcliffe Road (going back on yourself but in parallel with Copse Road). Then take the next right into Stanley Road and the stadium is at the bottom of this road on your left.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 223 (approx. journey time a little under four hours)

Recommended area for car parking
There are a limited number of parking spaces available at the ground but street parking is permitted on the surrounding roads.

Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 5,327(seats 2,701). The stadium is modern having been completely re-built over recent years. Away fans are mainly housed in the Percy Ronson terrace at one end of the stadium.  This terrace is covered, free from supporting pillars, and gives a good view. Visiting supporters are also allocated 300 seats in the Parkside Stand (opened in 2011).

Spare time on your hands?
Jim's Sports Bar at the ground normally admits away fans but gets very popular on match days. It is located at the back of the Memorial Stand. The Highbury Club located adjacent to the away turnstiles does not allow in visiting supporters. Fleetwood itself is about a 10-15-minute walk away. Here there are plenty of pubs including a Wetherspoon outlet the Thomas Drummond on London Street. Alcohol is available inside the stadium but only to away fans sitting in the Parkside Stand.
