Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following a 2-1 loss to Swansea, Stoke City will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they face Wycombe at their Bet365 Stadium. The Potters are on a three-game losing run in the Championship, and, as a result, they have slim chances of booking their place in the playoffs. Anyhow, Stoke City will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English second tier. All Campbell, Clucas, Collins, Doughty, Fox, Matondo, and McClean have been struggling with injuries of late.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, failed to spoil Watford’s party at Vicarage Road in their last league match. Wycombe failed to find the net in the previous two league fixtures, and given their poor away record, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Potters. Midfielder Alexander Pattison should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Danny Batth):
At the age of 10 Danny Batth joined Wolverhampton football academy. He was soon named the captain of the Wolves youth team and nobody was surprised when he made his debut for the senior team. The defender, who was born on 21 September, 1990 scored nine goals in 140 league appearances for Wolverhampton, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Colchester United, Sheffield United and their bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday on loan as well.
Danny Batth won the Football League One with Wolverhampton in the 2013/2014 season and, speaking of his individual awards, he was named Wolves Young Professional of the Year in the 2009/2010 campaign. Batth book his place in the 2013/2014 PFA League One Team of the Year as well. The 191-cm-tall centre back scored his first professional goal on 20 February in Colchester United’s 1-0 victory over Oldham Athletic.
Daniel Batth was born in Brierley Hill, West Midlands and he is the only footballer to play in all 46 matches for Wolves in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
