Wycombe Wanderers vs Hartlepool United
Tuesday 16th November 2021 (KO 7:45pm)
Adams Park
Referee: Christopher Pollard

A place in the Second Round of the FA Cup is up for grabs tonight as Wycombe welcome Hartlepool United down to HP12 in this reverse fixture.

10 days ago, the two sides battled out at Victoria Park in a 2-2 draw to force the replay at Adams Park, with Lincoln City the opponents who lie in wait of a victor tonight.

Hartlepool took the lead on the stroke of half-time through Mark Cullen in a first-half where the ball spent more time caught in the wind than on the floor.

Debutant defender Chris Forino levelled proceedings on the hour mark with a headed finish, only for Luke Molyneux to restore Pools' lead minutes later.

Joe Jacobson brought the game level once more with the Chairboys' first penalty of the season to set up the replay. Wycombe will be hoping to turn around recent form this evening with a much needed win at home, and will be seeking to avenge Saturday's 1-0 loss to Portsmouth.

Team news

Despite the tough result against Pompey, Gareth Ainsworth's troops came away unscathed and uninjured, with the Blues boss expected to name another strong outfit in order to try and get the job done.

Garath McCleary will miss out once more, along with international representees Daryl Horgan, Sullay Kaikai and Tjay De Barr.

As for Hartlepool, on-loan attacker Tyler Burey has sufffered an injury setback to keep him out of the tie, with Jamie Sterry the only other absentee.

Man in the middle

Christopher Pollard takes charge of tonight's clash, assisted by Michael Chard and Damith Bandara running the lines. Greg Read is the fourth official.

Pollard was on the whistle when the Chairboys took on MK Dons in the Papa John's Trophy earlier in the season.
