Fleetwood Town travel to Buckinghamshire to face Wycombe Wanderers in their latest Sky Bet League One fixture in a night game under the lights, and we have all the information you need ahead of the game.
Fixture: Wycombe Wanderers vs Fleetwood Town
Competition: Sky Bet League One
Date: Tuesday 7 March 2023
Venue: Adams Park
Wycombe come into the game at their home of Adams Park sitting just a place, but six points outside the League One play-off places. The Chairboys’ recent game was a 1-1 draw with Exeter City, and since the much-exposed departure of long-serving manager Gareth Ainsworth to Championship side QPR, Wycombe appointed club legend Matt Bloomfield as their new boss, but he is yet to win in his first two games in charge.
On loan Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Chem Campbell has been an influence for Wycombe since his January arrival. He has a goal in his four starts so far and that came in the last game at home to Exeter. Tonight’s hosts boast a strong forward line with the likes of Gareth McCleary, David Wheeler and former Stoke and Burnley striker Sam Vokes in the ranks, joining Campbell.
Wycombe need a win to push closer to the top six and to give new head coach, Bloomfield his first win in charge.
Town’s great run came to an end at Turf Moor a little under a week ago when the Clarets defeated Scott Brown’s side 1-0. After that, Fleetwood travelled to Gloucestershire and were beaten by the same score line to Cheltenham Town. That wasn’t for the want of trying though as Fleetwood have moved up the table, picking up 16 points in the process.
Being without potent forward Promise Omochere will be difficult, but that gives chance to January’s signing duo of Jayden Stockley and Jack Marriott to potentially shine at Adams Park. The defence has been the most impressive part of Town’s recent run, even in the last two games, Brown’s men have only conceded two goals. With the Cods sitting 14th in the table, a win can move them back to 11th if results go their way.
In a third consecutive away game, Fleetwood will look to continue their push for a strong end to the season.
WHAT THE MANAGER HAD TO SAY REGARDING THE GAME
Head coach Brown spoke to press after Saturday’s defeat to Cheltenham and said there will be some changes made for tonight’s game.
“You speak to the lads, and they say that they’re ready to go and that’s a fantastic attitude, but from now on, we are going to have to think about how we are going to freshen things up. We went a wee bit too long, even from throw-ins as everyone knows Jayden [Stockley] is a unit who works hard.
“We’ve got to be a little bit smarter, play to people’s feet and be able to go around the corner, but we just went route one which is disappointing because we’ve worked on that over the last couple of weeks and they went back to just playing safe this afternoon.”
