Last season’s defeat at home to AFC Wimbledon was one of the real low points at Adams Park for me. For many Wycombe fans, the gutless second half display was a confirmation of the pain that was to come for the rest of the campaign. The previous season, the Wombles victory not only spoilt the Chairboy’s birthday celebrations but was enough for Gary Waddock to be removed as manager too. A lot has changed for both clubs since then and this game promises to be a cracker. The visitors have an in form striking partnership in Adebayo Akinfenwa and Matt Tubbs, who shot down table topping Bury last time out, giving Wycombe the chance to take over at the summit. They will be looking to repeat the trick again and could possibly come up against a re-jigged back line. Aaron Pierre is a serious doubt for the match following his knock against Morecambe and with no sign of Danny Rowe returning yet, the defence is incredibly stretched. However, Wycombe Wanderers are brimming with confidence too, especially with the two wonder strikes at the Globe Arena coupled with another goal for Paul Hayes. That’s twelve goals in eighteen games in a Wycombe shirt for the skipper.
