Wycombe Wanderers v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s trip to the Chairboys.

4 October 2019

Peterborough United travel to high-flying Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough United make the trip to Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) looking to build on last Saturday’s victory over AFC Wimbledon at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Posh also chalked up a 1-0 win over Arsenal under 21s on Tuesday evening meaning Ferguson’s men have lost just once in the last 10 games in all competitions, winning seven of them. Wycombe are in fine form themselves, with just one defeat in all competitions all season, that coming at Priestfield as Gillingham chalked up a 2-0 home success.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of experienced defender Nathan Thompson due to a groin injury, but aside from him have a fully fit squad to choose from. Dan Butler and Frazer Blake-Tracy are in a strong battle for the left-back berth while others staked a claim for a first team berth thanks to good second half displays in the Leasing.com Trophy.

Joe Jacobson and Nick Freeman are in contention after injury while Rolando Aarons and Curtis Thompson are also back in the fold after spells on the sidelines and the Blues boss is awaiting news on Matt Bloomfield, who has suffered a series of sickening head injuries in recent games.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Wycombe away is one of the toughest games on the calendar and particularly so this season as they deserve to be where they are in the table. They have a cracking manager in Gareth Ainsworth who has been there a long time and he has recruited well. They have some really good attacking players who can cause you problems.”

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“Peterborough could well have held their own in the Championship in the past few years; they’re a bigger club than most in this league, with a good history, good chairman and a very talented manager in Darren Ferguson. Darren’s a good friend of mine; he’s been there on a couple of occasions when I’ve asked for advice and he’s got real experience to call upon. He’s always been great with me and I’m looking forward to seeing him again, pitting our wits against each other, and having a drink in my office afterwards.

“We expect them to be very strong going forward, and we know it’ll be a tough test for our backline. It’s not just one player we have to look at stopping, it’s the whole team, because they’ve got a lot of weapons they can call upon.

“It’ll be an interesting game; we’ve looked at them and what we need to do to stop them, but also what we can do to impose ourselves on them. We’ve been on this great run at home and scored a lot of goals ourselves, so we want that to continue and I believe in this group of players,” Gareth Ainsworth said.

Wycombe Wanderers scored in stoppage time to earn a 3-3 draw with Posh at Adams Park.

Peterborough United squandered a 2-0 and a 3-2 lead to draw 3-3 with Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park with Adebayo Akinfenwa celebrating his 150th appearance with a brace, the second coming from the spot in stoppage time following a soft foul by Dan Butler on Scott Kashket.

Curtis Thompson was cautioned inside the opening two minutes for a foul on Marcus Maddison by the touchline. Mo EISA found the breakthrough on nine minutes, collecting a pass from Frazer Blake-Tracy before curling home with his right-foot past the despairing dive of goalkeeper Ryan Allsop for his ninth goal of the campaign.

Christy Pym made his first save of the afternoon on 16 minutes, comfortably keeping out an effort from Gape who let fly from long-range. Maddison was cautioned on 25 minutes for kicking the ball away by referee Mr Finnie.

Onyedinma fired wide from distance after manoeuvring himself into a shooting position 25-yards from goal. Reed and Mason both fired wide from 30-yards at the other end as Wycombe struggled to clear a couple of Maddison set-pieces.

Posh doubled the lead on 38 minutes, a Maddison free-kick was not properly dealt with and the ball fell nicely for Josh KNIGHT who took a touch and rifled the ball into the back of the net with the man on the line just unable to keep it out.

Maddison fired over with a free-kick from 25-yards after he himself had been felled before Wycombe made a change with Rolando Aarons replacing Onyedinma. Maddison could and perhaps should have extended the advantage on 51 minutes after racing onto a clever Toney flick, the long-serving midfielder firing wide with his left-foot inside the box.

The home side reduced the arrears on 54 minutes as a free-kick from Gape was headed past Pym by Adebayo AKINFENWA on his 150th appearance for the club. Posh made a change on the hour mark with Serhat Tasdemir replacing Maddison.

The home side drew themselves level on 62 minutes and it was an own goal from Frankie Kent as he diverted a right-wing centre past his own goalkeeper from close-range. Charles headed wide from a corner kick as Wycombe continued to dominate.

Posh got themselves back in front on 70 minutes as a driven corner from substitute Serhat Tasdemir was headed up into the air by TONEY and then superbly, acrobatically volleyed home by the former Newcastle front man.

Freeman volleyed over at the back post on 72 minutes before Wycombe introduced Scott Kashket for Wheeler in attack. Curtis Thompson was shown a second yellow card and a subsequent red card for a foul on Toney on 83 minutes by referee Mr Finnie.

Akinfenwa headed over from a Gape cross on 86 minutes after the Wycombe’s man’s initial free-kick struck the wall. Pym did well to hold an effort from Aarons on 88 minutes as Posh again caused their own problems. In six minutes of added time, Wycombe drew themselves level with 10-men, substitute Butler penalised for bringing down Kasket and AKINFENWA coolly slotted home the spot-kick.

Deep in stoppage time, Alsopp made a superb stop as a mad scramble ensued as Posh tried to find a winner with Eisa the man denied. Toney saw his header from the resulting set-piece gathered by the keeper before the referee brought an end to the contest.
