Wycombe v Accrington preview
Last Updated: 20/04/18 11:13am
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has been handed a triple boost as he prepares to send his side into battle with League Two champions-elect Accrington.
Ainsworth expects Adebayo Akinfenwa, Luke O'Nien and Dominic Gape all to be available after being struck down by illness in recent days. O'Nien lasted just 32 minutes at Yeovil last weekend and missed the midweek clash with Lincoln altogether, while Gape sat out the clash with the Imps and Akinfenwa did not make it to the break after starting.
However, Sido Jombati (groin), Curtis Thompson (knee), Anthony Stewart (calf) and Dan Scarr (ankle) remain unavailable.
Accrington manager John Coleman could name the same team for the fourth successive game as he looks to add the title to promotion. Stanley secured their place in League One on Tuesday evening with a 2-0 home win over Yeovil starting with the same 11 men who had done so in the previous fixtures against Exeter and Colchester.
Striker Billy Kee's double against the Glovers took his tally for the campaign to 25 goals and with four games still to play, 30 could yet be within his reach. Coleman's side will run out four points ahead of second-placed Luton and a further five better off than their hosts in third with both having played a game more.
Wycombe are winless in their last 10 league games against Accrington Stanley, drawing seven of those (L3).
Stanley have lost just one of their nine away games at Wycombe in the Football League (W4 D4).
Wycombe are on their joint-longest unbeaten run in League Two this season of eight games (W4 D4), last going longer without defeat in the competition in January 2017 (12 matches).
Stanley are on a 14-game unbeaten run in League Two (W12 D2), the longest ongoing run in the division. Indeed, they have lost just one of their last 19 in the competition (W16 D2).
League Two top scorer Billy Kee's 24 goals have been worth 24 points to Accrington Stanley this season, at least eight more than any other player in the division.
What a story Accrington are, what a job John Coleman has done. They've done fantastically to achieve their first-ever promotion to the third tier, and they'll want to go on and bring home the silverware now.
Wycombe will be hoping that the party lasts until Saturday no doubt! They're third in the table heading into the weekend but that can all change very quickly, especially if they're beaten. And I reckon they will be.
David Prutton predicts: 2-3 (33/1 with Sky Bet)
