Wycombe vs Walsall preview
Last Updated: 21/04/19 12:48pm
Gareth Ainsworth must decide whether to stick or twist when Wycombe host Walsall on Easter Monday.
Wycombe have been unchanged for the last three games and while they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Rochdale on Good Friday, Ainsworth said he could not fault his players.
But he may be tempted to rotate his squad for a second game in four days and has options should he wish to change things. Paris Cowan-Hall has featured from the bench in recent games and could be involved again.
Josh Gordon returns to contention for relegation-threatened Walsall's trip to Adams Park. Forward Gordon missed Friday's 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers Southend through suspension after picking up two yellow cards in the defeat to Accrington, but he is available again on Monday.
On-loan QPR attacker Aramide Oteh could be given more game time after coming off the bench to rescue a point with a stoppage-time penalty last time out. Walsall are three points adrift of Scunthorpe, who occupy the last position of safety, and four behind hosts Wycombe in a congested table.
Wycombe are winless in their last nine games in all competitions against Walsall (D2 L7), last recording a victory in October 2000.
Walsall have scored in 11 of their last 12 meetings with Wycombe in all competitions, netting 26 goals in total (avg 2 goals per game).
Wycombe are looking to avoid losing four consecutive home league games for the first time since January 2014.
Walsall have picked up just one win in their last 15 away games in league play (D3 L11).
Wycombe striker Adebayo Akinfenwa netted both goals in his sides 2-0 victory at Southend last time out, as many goals as in his previous 19 League One appearances for the Chairboys.
