Wycombe Wanderers: The Factfile

24 March 2014

All the info on Tuesday's opponents

LAST RESULT: Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Rochdale, Sky Bet League 2, Saturday 22nd March

FORM (LAST TEN GAMES): Won: 3, Drawn: 4, Lost: 3

Wycombe's form over the last ten games can be cut into two segments. Having gone six games unbeaten, including three wins, the Chairboys looked as if they were about to pull themselves away from danger at the bottom of League 2.

A run of three defeats in four since then however, has plunged them back into trouble ad they currently sit only three points above the relegation zone.

THE GAFFER - GARETH AINSWORTH
After a long playing career spanning 22 years, the Wycombe job is Ainsworth's first full-time managerial role.

Born in Blackburn, he made his name in the Football League with Preston North End, Lincoln City, Port Vale, Wimbledon, Queens Park Rangers and Wycombe, where he ended his career in 2013.
Across his career, Ainsworth played 555 times and scored 108 goals.

During his time playing at QPR, he had two spells as Caretaker Manager in 2008 and 2009, stepping into the breach following the departures of Iain Dowie and Paulo Sousa.

This is Ainsworth's first season as full time manager, after taking on the role of player/manager last season after Gary Waddock left.

Ainswort is regarded as a cult hero at some of his former clubs, and was in a band during his time at Wimbledon with two Dons team mates.

HEAD TO HEAD:
Burton Albion wins: 3
Draws: 0
Wycombe Wanderers wins: 3

LAST TIME WE MET:
Saturday 5th October 2013, Sky Bet League 2, Adams Park
Wycombe Wanderers 1-2 Burton Albion

Albion kicked off October with a win as Billy Kee's brace earned the Brewers three points at Adams Park.

Kee put the Brewers ahead in the first half, and doubled the lead shortly after half-time from the penalty spot. Wycombe were reduced to 10 men when Charles Dunne was sent off for a second yellow card, and Matt McClure scored in stoppage time to give Wycombe hope of a comeback.

ONE TO WATCH - DEAN MORGAN

Wycombe forward Dean Morgan is the club's top scorer this season with eight goals, and will be a key player for the Chairboys tomorrow night.

Starting his career at Colchester United, Morgan, 30, played 77 times for the U's befor leaving in 2003 to join Reading, for whom he made 35 appearances in two seasons, scoring only three times.

Following his release from Reading, Morgan went on to play 101 times for Luton Town in a four year spell, scoring 12 times.

His time with the Hatters included loan spells at Southend United, Leyton Orient, Crewe and Grays Athletic.

Following unsuccessful spells at MK Dons and Aldershot Town, Morgan moved to Chesterfield and scored seven times in 44 games. 

Morgan signed for Wycombe in 2012 and has so far scored 17 goals in 64 games for Wycombe.
