Match Preview: Wycombe Wanderers

21 February 2020

Setting the scene…

Tranmere Rovers head to promotion-chasing Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park in Sky Bet League One on Saturday afternoon, 3pm kick-off.

Micky Mellon’s men return to action having seen last week’s fixture away at Rochdale postponed as a result of heavy rainfall caused by Storm Dennis.

Rovers are seven points from safety and standing in their way this weekend are Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys, who are third on 56 points, one place and one point behind Coventry City.

Team news

Kane Wilson and Calum Woods have both trained on Thursday for the first time since injury.

George Ray suffered a groin injury against Bristol Rovers last week and is a doubt for the game in Buckinghamshire.

Peter Clarke and Ollie Banks have returned to training following recent lay-offs.

Centre-backs Mark Ellis and Evan Gumbs played in Tuesday night’s Cheshire Senior Cup win at Crewe Alexandra after long-term injuries, but Saturday will come too soon for selection.

One to watch

Full-back Joe Jacobson has featured on more than 200 occasions following his arrival at Wycombe Wanderers in July 2014.

Welshman Jacobson began his playing career at hometown club Cardiff City, before signing permanently for Bristol Rovers having spent time on loan with the Pirates as well as Accrington Stanley.

Jacobson went onto represent Oldham Athletic, a return to Accrington, and Shrewsbury Town.

After playing 110 games for the Salop, Jacobson linked up with Wycombe, playing a key role in the club’s promotion up to Sky Bet League One in 2018.

He is currently their top scorer with nine to his name.

Match Reports

Wycombe Wanderers 3-1 Tranmere Rovers

22 February 2020

Tranmere Rovers suffered a 3-1 defeat away to promotion-chasing Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One at Adams Park on Saturday afternoon. 

Gareth Ainsworth’s hosts led on the stroke of half-time when Anthony Stewart bundled in a header from a corner.

Vaughan levelled for Rovers just beyond the hour-mark with a well-composed side-footed finish that went in off the post, his first goal in Tranmere colours.

Adebayo Akinfenwa restored the Chairboys’ advantage with 19 minutes left when he glanced in a corner.

Joe Jacobson added Wycombe's third from the penalty spot after Scott Davies brought down Alex Samuel in stoppage time. 

Defenders Peter Clarke and Kane Wilson returned to the starting line-up for Micky Mellon’s side after injury, while Vaughan partnered Andy Cook up front.

Donning a kit of all white, and backed by a healthy contingent of the SWA, Rovers had to be on their guard early on when Akinfenwa lofted a pass to Fred Onyedinma, but Wilson produced a well-timed tackle in the penalty box, as the ball fell into the grasp of Davies.

Up the other end, Corey Blackett-Taylor’s corner was met by the head of Clarke, though his goal-bound header was blocked.

Rovers then had to clear their lines twice in the six-yard box after a set-piece from home goalkeeper Ryan Allsop presented opportunities to Akinfenwa and Darius Charles.

The swirling wind was causing issues for both teams, and Davies had to watch and gather a set-piece under pressure which had been lofted forward by Jacobson.

Midway through the half, Kieron Morris beat his man down the left and floated a cross into Cook, however the forward couldn’t fully connect with his volley which was comfortable for Allsop.

Having seen Curtis Thompson shoot past the upright, Wycombe’s next opportunity came through Jason McCarthy’s free-kick on the half-hour, which found its way up and over the wall, straight into Davies’ grasp.

David Wheeler then tried his luck following Paul Smyth’s cross, with his effort failing to test Davies.

The Buckinghamshire outfit were ahead on 44 minutes when Stewart headed in from on the line after a corner was headed across goal.

Wycombe created the first real chance of the second-half, with Smyth getting beyond Wilson before driving forward and bending his attempt which Davies was equal to after dropping down low to his right.

Mellon brought on Morgan Ferrier in place of Cook with 56 minutes played as Tranmere went in search of an equaliser.

Two minutes later, Rovers almost found themselves further behind in the game after Akinfenwa crashed a powerful off the crossbar from inside the six-yard box.

Tranmere equalised with 63 minutes on the clock when Vaughan chased a loose ball to side-foot right-footed from the left-side of the area past Allsop, which crossed the line after hitting the base of the right-post.

Davies would be on hand four minutes after to thwart Stewart’s header from close-range from McCarthy’s cross.

Wycombe were back in command when Akinfenwa planted his header past Davies’ dive and into the bottom right-corner from Onyedinma’s corner with 20 minutes to go.

Rovers conceded a third in stoppage time from the penalty spot after Davies brought down  Samuel, with Jacobson converting the resulting kick from 12-yards.

Next up for Rovers is a trip to the New Meadow on Tuesday night, where Shrewsbury Town await, 7:45pm kick-off.
