FLEETWOOD TOWN

Last five results in all competitions:  W D L D L

League position: 11th with 61 points

Top goal scorer: Paddy Madden (19 goals in all competitions)

The Cod Army finished off their season at Highbury with an impressive 2-1 victory over former Premier League club, Sunderland. With the Black Cats taking the lead in the first half through Lee Cattermole, Town needed a big second half to make a comeback.

And what a second half it was, Paddy Madden equalised with less than 20 minutes to go, with Ashley Nadesan sealing the three points with a late header from six yards out.

Joey Barton now wants his side to pick up three more points in their last match of the season, and with local rivals Blackpool one a point ahead, it could be local pride for both clubs with just one game left.

WYCOMBE WANDERERS

Last five results in all competitions: L W L L L  

League position: 18th with 50 points.

Club’s top goal scorer: Adebayo Akinfenwa , eight goals in all competitions)

Wycombe have won just two of their last 10 Sky Bet League One games, with the latest coming against Walsall at home on Easter Monday, thanks to a goal from Jason McCarthy.

Gareth Ainsworth and his side sit three places above the relegation zone, with three points separating them and Plymouth – who currently sit in 21st place. They aren’t mathematically safe, but with their current goal difference, it’s like having an extra point on the board.

The manager has said that some of this players have been battling through the pain barrier in recent weeks, but each member of his squad will be hoping to be involved in one way or another.

Last time the two sides met

On the 2nd October 2018, the two sides met at Highbury Stand on a cold Tuesday night. The match finished 1-1 with both teams sharing the points.

Town’s top goal scorer Paddy Madden opened the scoring in the 37th minute with a glancing header at the near post, with Adebayo Akinfenwa scoring on 56 minutes. Here are the highlights from the match.

One To Watch:

Veteran striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has had another fine season for Wanderers, hitting eight goals in the league to make him the club’s top scorer for the season.

The 36-year-old struck against Town when the sides last met earlier in the season, and Joey Barton’s men will have to be on the lookout to stop it from happening again.

JOEY BARTON

“The exciting thing is that we want to finish the season strongly, and it would be nice to do that with back-to-back victories. It won’t be easy at Wycombe, but it would be nice to get that feeling going into the summer so we can hit the ground running next season.

“I spoke on Tuesday night about how we won the game on our culture, and I think that we did. We were probably lucky to get in at half-time at 1-0 down, and then the lads in the second half were outstanding.

“You can’t do that if you don’t have a good culture. We had to get that monkey off our back – not coming from behind to win – I think the manner of the win, and who it came against, will give the lads an incredible amount of belief.”

GARETH AINSWORTH

“If we are above that dotted line, it would be a huge success story for Wycombe Wanderers and the players would deserve it as they have been brilliant.

"If we manage to get to 53 points, brilliant, 51 would be great and 50 would be fantastic. I just want a nice survival party at the end of the game because the players and fans deserve that.

"The lads have been working hard this week. There are no extra days off and we have been looking at Fleetwood and working hard and I am looking forward to the game now."

Match Reports

Report: Town fall to defeat on the final day of the season

4 May 2019

It was a frustrating evening in Buckinghamshire for Fleetwood Town as they left Adams Park with nothing on the final day of the season, losing 1-0 away at Wycombe Wanderers.

In a match that saw both teams have their chances, it was a set-piece that opened the deadlock, with Joe Jacobson scoring from his own corner on the right-hand side. 

Ash Hunter and Paddy Madden went close for the Cod Army, and if it wasn't for Ryan Allsop between the sticks, it might have been a different story. With a number of young players making their EFL debut for the club, there were some positive for Joey Barton.

Wycombe got the first chance of the game, after just two minutes, when Scott Kashket managed to beat the offside trap before looping an effort over Alex Cairns, however Wes Burns was able to get back to clear the danger.

Fleetwood Town responded well, with Ashley Nadesan bursting through the Chairboys’ defence - brushing past Adam El-Abd, before hitting a left-footed shot across the goalmouth but Allsop easily collected the weak attempt.

Town continued to cause the hosts problems and this time it was Hunter. The young Englishman found space on the edge of the 18-yard-box and unleashed a brilliant curling effort but Allsop was able to pull off a great save to stop it from hitting the back of the net.

Wycombe were handling Fleetwood well, allowing the Cod Army possession but cutting off any opportunities to go forwards. The game remained this way in the first-half for some time until the hosts were awarded a free-kick, in the 32nd minute.

Jason McCarthy stepped over the free-kick and struck it from 25-yards, the ball ricocheted off the foot of the post and out for a goal kick, but it looked as though Cairns had it covered. Nothing could separate the two teams heading into the break at half-time.

Fleetwood came out in the second half knowing they needed to improve on their first half performance. The team continued to keep possession well and after a quick free-kick, Hunter saw an opportunity to hit one, but his effort flew into the stands.

In the 59th minute, Madden had a massive opportunity to open the scoring after Nadesan picked him out with a pull-back, but the Irishman couldn’t keep his effort down and saw it fly over the crossbar.

A minute later and the hosts had a great chance at the other end, but Cairns showed great speed to get off his line to deny Alex Samuel from inside the area.

Madden had another great chance after Burns’ pass found him inside the area, but once again the striker was denied by Allsop who pulled off a good save, to deny him from his 20th goal in all competitions.

Against the run of play, Wycombe found themselves 1-0 up after Jacobson’s corner found its way into the back of the net.

Fleetwood were now in search of an equaliser and almost immediately found it. Coyle was able to find Hunter, unmarked in the area, but again his effort was fired over the crossbar to the despair of the Cod Army fans behind the goal.

Town had another chance to find an equaliser, after Burns linked up with Madden once again. This time Madden could only slide his effort wide of the target, much to the frustration of the Irishman.

In the 85th minute, Madden connected well with a cross into the area, heading it goal wards from close range but again Allsop was equal to it.

Unfortunately, Fleetwood’s last game this season ended in defeat however despite the result, Macauley Southam-Hales made his league debut, alongside Dan Mooney – rounding off a season with youth involvement on the pitch.

Fleetwood Town XI: Cairns (GK), Coyle (C), Eastham, Burns (Mooney 90’), Madden, Hunter, Wallace, Nadesan (Southam-Hales 84’), Husband, Biggins (Baggley 84’), Sowerby.

Subs not used: Jones (GK), Clarke, Hill, Smith.

Wycombe XI: Allsop (GK), Jacobson, Gape, El-Abd (C), Bean (Owens 74’), Bloomfield, Kashket (Bolton 63’), Harriman, Akinfenwa, Samuel (Freeman 90’), McCarthy.

Subs not used: Ma-Kalambay (GK), Stewart, Cowan-Hall, Frempah.
