MATCH PREVIEW | WYCOMBE WANDERERS (A)

7 December 2021

BURTON Albion return to Sky Bet League One action as we take on Wycombe Wanderers in a midweek clash at Adams Park tonight (7.45pm kick-off).

FORM GUIDE

Albion come into the game after suffering a narrow 2-1 defeat to Port Vale in the FA Cup at the weekend, but will look to put it behind them as they return to league action.

The Brewers have won their last two league games - defeating Accrington Stanley 4-0 and Doncaster Rovers 2-0 in successive games at the Pirelli Stadium.

Wycombe return to action for the first time in 10 days and will be looking to extend their three-game unbeaten run when the Brewers arrive at Adams Park.

That most recent game saw the Chairboys draw 2-2 at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday following back-to-back victories over Plymouth Argyle and Bolton Wanderers.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers have the better head-to-head record against Wycombe, getting the better of tonight’s opponents eight times, while losing five.

The fixture in previous years has never lacked excitement, with a draw never being played out between the two.

The Brewers' last outing against Wycombe came just a month ago at Adams Park in the Papa John’s trophy. An Aaron Amadi-Holloway hattrick helped Albion on their way to a 5-0 victory that evening.

BREWERS TEAM NEWS

Michael Bostwick will be unavailable due to a knock picked up in training says Brewers assistant manager Dino Maamria, but there are no other new injury concerns for the Brewers.

"We lost Bozzy last week in training," confirmed Maamria in our press conference yesterday.

"Apart from that I think everybody else is okay."

Louis Moult (ankle) and Tom Hewlett (ankle) continue to build their fitness on the grass while Jacob Maddox is nearing on a return from a hamstring issue.

WYCOMBE TEAM NEWS

Joe Jacobson could return to the Chairboys squad for tonight's game and in any case, the Chairboys are expected to be much-changed from that Papa John's Trophy game a month ago.

Key man Anis Mehmeti could also feature days after signing a new contract at Wycombe to keep him at Adams Park until 2024.

MATCH OFFICIALS

The referee for tomorrow’s game at Adams Park will be Joshua Smith. Smith will be assisted by Sam Lewis and Adam Crysell, with the Fourth Official being Trevor Kettle.

The Select Group 2 referee has issued 67 yellow cards in his 19 games this season, with two reds also shown.

One of those dismissals was shown to Brewers captain John Brayford, who collected a second yellow card from Smith in our 0-0 draw at Bolton Wanderers back in September.
