Wycombe and Huddersfield played out a 0-0 draw with few chances at either end as both sides settled for a point at Adams Park.

The opening half had few chances, with the best falling to Huddersfield’s Naby Sarr, when he headed the ball onto the post.

After the break, Wycombe had the ball cleared off the line and went close through substitute Garath McCleary but were unable to break the deadlock.

The Chairboys will take another point and clean sheet up to Pride Park, to play Derby on Saturday.

Team news revealed a double change with Dennis Adeniran and Fred Onyedinma returning to the Chairboys line-up replacing, David Wheeler and Daryl Horgan.

In the first league meeting between both sides since 2012, Wycombe started well through the Wanderer’s top scorer Scott Kashket. Although the striker rounded the Huddersfield keeper, he was unable to get his shot away.

The game burst into life thanks to Fred Onyedinma, who won the ball high up the pitch and took on the Huddersfield defence. With some trickery, the winger created space and looked to pick out Bayo Akinfenwa, but the ball was too high for the striker.  

As Wycombe looked to press the Huddersfield back-line, it allowed the away side to counterattack, with Adama Diakhaby's shot going wide of the net moments later.

Arguably the best chance of the first half landed on a Huddersfield head, with Naby Sarr directing the ball onto the post after getting on the end of an Isaac Mbenza cross.

With the half coming to a close, Kashket and Akinfenwa linked up well to put the number eleven in behind the defence. Ryan Schofield, in net for the away side, was quick off his line and just got there first.

The second half was marred by injuries and players going down as the hectic schedule seemed to take its toll. Dominic Gape was the first to come off as a precaution, followed by the Huddersfield keeper Ryan Schofield who was able to continue after receiving some attention.

Ryan Allsop was called into action getting a vital hand on a Huddersfield cross to stop it finding the back of the net.

The best chances for Wycombe came in the closing stages of the game. Substitutes Daryl Horgan and Garath McCleary combined, with the latter hitting a strike that just went wide after taking a deflection.

The final chance was cleared off the line, after a defensive mix up that saw the Huddersfield defenders link-up, almost handing the lead to the Chairboys, but ultimately the game ended goalless.
