Ainsworth Pre Coventry City

Wycombe Wanderers head to the Ricoh Arena to take on a Coventry City side who have won the last five meetings between the two clubs.

The Chairboys are buoyed by their away form, losing just two of the last 17 on the road, whilst Coventry are still contending with off the pitch issues regarding their home.

Wycombe will be without the injured Anthony Stewart and Nathan Tyson but Sido Jombati is available after serving a one match suspension for collecting five yellow cards this season.

Ahead of the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth:

Adebayo Akinfenwa – 200 Not Out

Screen Shot 2018-10-06 at 20.46.30

“The cross was like food, and I was due a snack.”

Too big to play football? Too old to cut it in League One? Nonsense.

At 36, Adebayo Akinfenwa is continuing to prove people wrong and against Burton Albion he scored his fourth goal in as many games and also reached the hugely impressive milestone of 200 goals in English football.

After the match against The Brewers, I spoke to The Beast, who was quick to praise his team mates:

Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Burton Albion

Wycombe came out on top of a close encounter to secure their first home league win of the season against Burton Albion.

The Chairboys led 2-0 at half-time following a comfortable first 45 minutes which saw a penalty cooly converted by the recalled Joe Jacobson and a trademark finish from Adebayo Akinfenwa, his 200th goal in English football.

Brewers manager Nigel Clough switched to a 4-4-2 formation for the second half, pushing Lucas Akins further forward which resulted in a well worked goal on ’47 minutes for Marvin Sordell. Despite a much improved Burton performance, Wycombe ground out a vital win to move out of the relegation zone whilst leapfrogging their opponents in the table.

Fleetwood Town 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers

A windy affair ended in a draw at The Highbury Stadium as The Chairboys fought back in the second half.

The hardy Wycombe fans who made the long midweek journey would have been buoyed by the display of the talismanic Adebayo Akinfenwa, who has put his goalscoring drought behind him with three goals in as many games.

After the game I spoke with the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:

Northampton Town 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers

A fantastic Scott Kashket strike was enough for Wycombe Wanderers to open this seasons Checkatrade Trophy campaign with a win and bank a useful £10k in prize money.

The Chairboys utilised their favoured 4-3-3 formation and made ten changes in what was an incredibly attacking line up. L2 Northampton were a poor opposition in the first half and Wycombe played some decent stuff with Sam Saunders orchestrating proceedings.

As expected, the Cobblers came out in the second half with a different approach and made it more of a game but rarely troubled the Wycombe back line.

After the final whistle, I spoke with the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:

Wycombe Wanderers 2-2 Forest Green Rovers (4-3 on pens)

Wycombe Wanderers progressed into the third round of the League Cup for only the second time in their history after a penalty shoot-out victory over Forest Green Rovers at Adams Park.

With the score tied at 2-2 after ninety minutes, The Chairboys had to hold their nerve from the spot for the second round in succession. After the game, Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth spoke of the financial importance of a cup run for the club:
