Match preview: City v Wycombe Wanderers

All you need to know about the Grecians match with Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday

9 February 2018

Exeter City will be looking to continue their impressive home form when they take on second-placed Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The Grecians have won their last five League Two games at St James Park, but in Wycombe they face an in-form side who have recorded five straight wins in the division including an impressive victory over league leaders Luton Town in their last match on the road.

City manager Paul Tisdale is expecting a tough game and is full of admiration for the work Gareth Ainsworth has done at Adams Park.

“I am not surprised (by their recent run),” said Tis. “Every year I am more and more impressed by them. They continue to get results, they play as a team, they score goals and they are tough to play against.”

Read Tis’ full match thoughts, including an update on the injury situation here.

Meanwhile Gareth Ainsworth takes a good, strong squad to Exeter although Luke O’Nien’s red card – picked up in their 3-2 victory over Carlisle United – has not been overturned.

“We’re pleased to take a real good squad down to Exeter,” said Gareth.

“I’m very disappointed Luke’s red card was not rescinded, but Tafari (Moore) being back is big for us as it allows Dominic Gape to be an option in midfield having been fantastic in there at Luton.”

City 1 Wycombe Wanderers 1

Grecians held at home by Chairboys

10 February 2018

Sponsored by

Exeter City were held to a 1-1 draw by promotion rivals Wycombe Wanderers at St James Park in Sky Bet League Two.

Despite going ahead in the first half through Lloyd James' free-kick, they were pegged back by Marcus Bean's finish early in the second half.

The Grecians fought to go ahead again and had half-chances towards the end of the match but were unable to find a second of the afternoon.

Match Report sponsored by Speedy Freight

Paul Tisdale made four changes to the City side that were narrowly beaten at Luton Town last weekend with Lee Holmes, Liam McAlinden and Pierce Sweeney returning to the side alongside captain Jordan Moore-Taylor, who made his return from a hip flexor injury.

Both sides began the match with obvious game plans on a difficult pitch at St James Park as City looked to use the height of Jayden Stockley to their advantage, and Wycombe looking to use the power of Adebayo Akinfenwa up front.

The Grecians went ahead on 12 minutes with their first real attempt when James’ in-swinging free-kick wide on the left managed to evade everyone in the Wycombe area, including goalkeeper Scott Brown, as the ball nestled in the far corner.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side, who had been the victim of some loose passing for much of the opening 30 minutes, had their first chance when Dominic Gape’s cross from the left almost found Akinfenwa, but after good defending by Dean Moxey, the forward was unable to make contact with the ball at the far post.

In a combative first half City continued to dominate the chances with Moxey shooting over from the edge of the box before Stockley’s flicked header towards the far post trickled just wide with the onrushing Jordan Tillson unable to knock the ball over the line.

The Grecians made an enforced change just before half-time when the impressive Jordan Storey, who made his second successive league start, picked up a blow to his face after challenging with Akinfenwa as City too their narrow lead into the break.

It was the Chairboys who had the first chance of the second period when a cross in was held up well by Akinfenwa before the ball fell to Paris Cowan-Hall, but his low effort was saved well by Christy Pym.

But soon after the away side were level when a long ball into the box eventually fell to Bean at the far post who slotted the ball past Pym to bring Wycombe back into the match.

In a much more open affair, City then had a good chance to go back in front when Lee Holmes did well down the left before he crossed well for Sweeney, but his low header was straight at Brown.

Half chances continued to fall for both sides but neither team were able to fashion enough clear-cut chances to test Pym or Brown in the Wycombe goal.

The Grecians did test the Wycombe keeper in the 87th minute when a corner kick eventually fell to substitute Ryan Harley just inside the box, but his half volley was straight at Brown.

City continued to press into injury time but were unable to create a clear enough opportunity to go ahead again. They now set their sights on a midweek trip to Port Vale on Tuesday night.

Exeter City: Pym, Sweeney, James, Tillson, Holmes (Harley, 66), Stockley, Moore-Taylor, McAlinden (Edwards, 73), Moxey, Taylor, Storey (Woodman, 45)

Subs not used: Jones, Simpson, Wilson, Boateng

Booked: Sweeney, Holmes, James

Wycombe Wanderers: Brown, Jacobson, Gape, El-Abd, Bean, Bloomfield, Cowan-Hall (Mackail-Smith, 76), Moore, Akinfenwa, Tyson (Freeman, 82), Scarr (McGinley, 15)
