PREVIEW | Wycombe Wanderers v Yeovil Town

Glovers head to Buckinghamshire this weekend

24 November 2017

Suspensions to Olufela Olomola and Francois Zoko gave chances to other attacking players in recent weeks and now there is an opportunity for the defensive members of the squad to stake a claim for a permanent place in the team.

Bevis Mugabi, who saw red in the Glovers’ last outing on the road at Carlisle United, will sit on the sidelines for one last time at Wycombe Wanderers this weekend and Sid Nelson begins his three-match ban.

Darren Way will hope Ryan Dickson (concussion) will be available to him after sitting out for almost a month. Swansea City loanee Keston Davies could also gain a starting berth.

Whoever is selected will hope to add Town’s second away win of the Sky Bet League Two campaign, however a strong Chairboys attack in wait – quite literally.

Adebayo Akinfenwa, known as the Beast and the strongest player on FIFA, has contributed 10 goals and six assists to the Wycombe cause so far, while experienced striker Craig Mackail-Smith has netted six times.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side will be without centre-back Adam El-Abd who picked his fifth booking of the season in midweek.

Head-to-head
Town have never lost a game at Adams Park.

In their five games in Buckinghamshire, the Glovers have won three and drawn two.

The two draws have been under Darren Way’s stewardship with Kevin Dawson’s penalty being cancelled out by Joe Jacobson’s spot-kick back in January.

Officials
Tom Nield will be the man in the middle on Saturday - it will be the West Yorkshire-based referee’s 13th game of the campaign.

In the dozen games he’s taken charge of so far, half of which have been in Sky Bet League Two, he has issued 32 yellow cards and two reds.

Mr Nield has never officiated a Yeovil fixture having spent the previous two seasons in non-league.

He will be supported by Graham Kane (East Sussex) and Leigh Crowhurst (Sussec) with John Farries (Oxfordshire) acting as fourth official.
