Wycombe Wanderers vs Lincoln City
Saturday 21st August 2021, k.o. 3pm
Sky Bet League 1
Referee: James Bell
Wanderers' unbeaten start to the season will be tested by last year's defeated play-off finalists in the Chairboys' second home game of the campaign this weekend.
Gareth Ainsworth's men matched their best ever start to a League 1 season by claiming seven points from a possible nine against Accrington, Cheltenham and Wigan, and now return to Adams Park looking for a repeat of the entertainment served up last time the Imps came to HP12.
Joe Jacobson scored an incredible hat-trick of set pieces to send the Blues top of League 1 for the first time in their history, as Wanderers clinched a 3-1 win in what was to be the last game in charge of Lincoln for manager Danny Cowley, who'd led them from the National League, won the EFL Trophy and reached the FA Cup quarter-final.
New boss Michael Appleton has overhauled the squad and changed the style of play which reaped its rewards last term, missing out on promotion by the narrowest of margins, and they've started with a win, a draw and a defeat so far this term.
Please remember Adams Park is now a cashless stadium!
Gareth Ainsworth has no fresh injuries so will have some selection decisions to make. Dominic Gape, Ryan Tafazolli, David Wheeler and Jason McCarthy have been the recent absentees.
Lincoln are missing new signing Chris Maguire and Joe Walsh through injury, but could welcome back midfielder Teddy Bishop, who made an impressive start to life at Lincoln before missing the defeat to Bolton in midweek.
There's still time to grab a seat; click here for details! Fans of both clubs can buy on the day; home supporters should head to tickets.wwfc.com to secure their seat to avoid queues at the stadium, and Lincoln fans are able to buy from Ticket Office 1 on arrival (cashless only).
Make use of the brand-new Park and Ride scheme from West Wycombe, which runs regular shuttles from Cowleaze Park before and after the game. The club have also introduced a new bus service from Wycombe Rail Station. There is no parking available on-site for on-the-day purchases, so please do not arrive at the gates unless you have a pass, or have pre-booked before 3pm on Friday.
Head to the Chairboys Village from noon to begin soaking up the atmosphere, with live sport on TV, and this fan zone will also be abuzz with beer, BBQ food and live music. The Village is open to home fans only, and requires cashless payments at the bar.
Wanderers are delighted to welcome back the Funky Elephant food truck, which will be situated by the Village.
The Caledonian Suite is also open from 12pm for home fans, with a bar open and the opportunity to order food via the FETCH app.The Honours Lounge and Woodlands Lounge are reserved for members only.
Please note the club are unable to facilitate Q&As with players inside the stadium lounges, due to EFL restrictions which are in place to limit Covid risks of players in highly-congested indoor spaces. The club hopes these restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible so that these Q&As can resume.
Lincoln fans are invited to visit the new Away Fan Village by the entrance to the stadium, which will be selling soft and alcoholic drinks, with catering provided by Brat-Bros - a food truck truck based in London and founded in 2020 by duo Frederick and Alexandros, serving a series of hotdogs including bratwurst and bockwurst accompanied by fries.
