Ainsworth Pre Luton Town

I caught up with Gareth Ainsworth ahead of the Luton Town game at Adams Park. It’s been a busy week and we spoke about The Hatters, set pieces, Fred Onyedinma, Charlie Fox and the Carabao Cup draw:

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:

The Lowdown On Alex Samuel

Wycombe Wanderers have signed forward Alex Samuel on a six month contract. The 22 year old free agent was released by Stevenage at the end of last season, after making 22 appearances during an injury hit campaign.

Chairboys manger Gareth Ainsworth admitted the low key signing was “unlikely to trouble the Sky Sports ticker tape” but he will be hoping Samuel can replicate the success of Scott Kashket who signed a similar deal at Adams Park in 2016.

So who is Alex Samuel? To find out more about him I spoke to BBC Three Counties summariser for Stevenage, Deano Thompson:

The Little & Large Show Is Back

The Chairboys defeat against Bristol Rovers at Adams Park gave the home fans very little to cheer about after the Gas dominated large parts of the game and they deservedly took the three points.

However, the introduction of Scott Kashket as a second half substitute led to Wycombe making a real game of it in the closing stages.

The diminutive striker scored his first goal of the season late on after a knock down from the talismanic Adebayo Akinfenwa. It was a familiar sight from two seasons ago when Kashket and Akinfenwa were the scourge of League Two defences and Wanderers fans will be praying that Scott can stay fit and firing alongside The Beast.

After the game, I spoke with Kashket about his goal, fitness and his Panenka penalty against Northampton Town in the League Cup:

Chairboys Sneak Through On Penalties

Wycombe Wanderers snuck past League 2 Northampton Town 7-6 on penalties to progress into the second round of the League Cup for the first time in seven years.

The match was tied at 1-1 after 90 very entertaining minutes in which the Chairboys looked to be fluffing their lines in front of goal again. The breakthrough came ten minutes into the second half with a well worked move being emphatically headed home by Randell Williams and the home side visibly grew in confidence.

However, The Cobblers stuck to their guns and forced their way back into the tie with a late leveller from substitute Sam Hoskins which came shortly after Wycombe goalkeeper, Yves Ma-Kalambay, had saved a penalty.

The big keeper was the hero again in the shoot out, keeping out Jordan Turnbulls penalty  which allowed Adam El-Abd to slam home the winner in front of a sparse Adams Park crowd.

After the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth:

If, like Gareth, you would like to know who Wycombe could face in the second round, here are the numbers for the Southern section of the draw which takes place on Thursday evening.

Video Nasty Motivates Blues

Wycombe midfielder Marcus Bean made a fine start to the season protecting the back four in the opening day stalemate against Blackpool at Adams Park.

The combative midfielder was unlucky not to score during a lively first half after an intelligent lay-off from Adebayo Akinfenwa led to a fierce goal bound shot which was blocked by a defender.

After the game, Beany told me about a motivational tool that was used in the pre match preparations:

Wycombe Wanderers 0-0 Blackpool

Wycombe Wanderers got their first point of the season after an entertaining scoreless draw against Blackpool at a sun kissed Adams Park.

The Chairboys had the better of the chances from open play but crucially failed to convert any of them with Paris Cowan-Hall guilty of spurning the best opportunity with two minutes on the clock.

However, it was Blackpool that came closest to breaking the deadlock with an excellent first half free-kick from Chris Taylor that struck the angle of post and bar, with Wycombe goalkeeper Ryan Allsop beaten.

Overall, it was a solid performance and a clean sheet for the Chairboys with the only cloud in the clear blue skies being the red card for right back Michael Harriman for two yellow cards, the second of which looked very harsh indeed.

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