Home   /   Wycombe Wanderers vs Portsmouth: Match Preview

Portsmouth make the trip to Adams Park as they look to turn around their poor form against fourth placed Wycombe.

Wycombe have had a strong start to the season, racking up thirty one points in their first sixteen games, and will feel they could add another three this weekend.

Before suffering a 4-1 loss to Ipswich in their last fixture, the Chairboys had gone unbeaten in seven league games, putting fifteen past their opposition during that time.

The home side have also made Adam’s Park a tough place to visit, winning six out of the seven games hosted there. Another win on home turf could potentially lift them into second place, relying on results going their way elsewhere.

Portsmouth come into this game unbeaten in five in all competitions, however the recent performances of the team have come under heavy criticism from the fans.

They scraped past non-league Harrow and Borough with a 1-0 win in the FA Cup, and have only come out on top in one in their last five league games.

The wasting of chances and sometimes lack of creativity to make them, have left the side struggling to score goals, resulting in Pompey sitting in an underwhelming 14th place.

Their most recent game ended in a 3-0 victory in the EFL Trophy. Miguel Azeez, Gassan Ahadme and George Hirst all netted their first senior competitive goal, as they cruised past Crystal Palace U21s. With the lack of end product in the league, Danny Cowley may look to these men on Saturday to see what they can offer given the chance.

Team News:

Wycombe will be left without Tjay De Barr, Sullay Kaikai and Daryl Horgan after all three where called up on international duty.

The Chairboys top scorer Garath McCleary is also a doubt for Saturday.

Pompey face greater selection problems, with Ellis Harrison, Jayden Reid, Ryan Tunnicliffe and captain Clark Robertson all sidelined due to respected injuries.

Danny Cowley will also be without first-team regular Joe Morrel and goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu as both are away on international duty.
