MATCH REPORT | BURTON ALBION 1-1 WYCOMBE WANDERERS

6 January 2024

BEZ Lubala’s thunderous strike proved to be only enough for a point for Albion as they were pegged back in a 1-1 draw at the Pirelli Stadium.

Lubala’s strike lit up the second half when he clinically fired home but Sam Vokes equaliser denied Albion a third straight home win.

The Brewers were boosted by the return of both Ryan Sweeney and Steve Seddon, the pair having missed the last game against Bolton through injury. They replaced Jake Caprice and Ciaran Gilligan who both dropped to the bench. Mason Bennett also returned to the starting line-up with Kwadwo Baah nursing a hamstring issue. Academy striker Dylan Scott made it onto the bench with Cole Stockton, Josh Walker and Josh Gordon all missing from the matchday squad.

After a positive start from the Brewers, it was the visitors creating the first real chance as Luke Leahy’s long throw was flicked on inside the and former Albion loanee Dale Taylor nipped in but was only able to nudge his header wide of the post.

Albion’s positive start continued with Kamwa continually fed the ball down the right, to the extent that Kieran Sadlier picked up an early yellow card for having to resort to hauling the Burton man down as he threatened to burst into the box.

Defences tended to be on top but Albion caused more problems from a Moon long throw and when the ball came out to Sam Hughes he fired a low angled drive just wide of the far post.

HALF TIME: BURTON ALBION 0-0 WYCOMBE WANDERERS

Sam Vokes, kept quiet by Hughes in the first half managed to find the opportunity to to get onto Leahy’s cross on 51 minutes but could only loop his header onto the roof of the net under pressure from Sweeney. And the same combination looked to try and give the visitors the lead three minutes later, this time Vokes header, from closer in clearing the target.

The deadlock was eventually broken on 57 minutes when Albion hit the front. A long ball forward was brought under control by LUBALA, and the striker left Stryjek clutching at thin air as his rasping drive arrowed into the corner.

Vokes continued to have a frustrating afternoon when he spurned the chance to equalise on 65 minutes hooking a close-range effort over the bar from a dangerous corner.

But the experienced striker kept plugging away and he got his rewards two minutes later volleying home Jack Grimmer’s cross.

David Wheeler was inches away from giving Wycombe the lead shortly after with a rising drive that Max Crocombe got fingertips to diverting it onto the crossbar.

Albion looked to their bench with thirteen minutes to go as Seddon, Kamwa and Bennett all went off and Rekeem Harper, Mustapha Carayol and Jake Caprice looked to make the difference.

But it was Wycombe who went closest with Vokes glancing a header against the crossbar as the game edged towards added time.

In the end it was a share of the spoils with neither side able to fashion a late winner.

 

ALBION: Crocombe; Hughes, Brayford, Sweeney; Moon, Oshilaja, Powell, Seddon, (Caprice, 77); Bennett (Harper, 77), Lubala, Kamwa (Carayol, 77).

Substitutes: Blackman, Gilligan, Scott, Tamen.
