Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Accrington will be looking to put an end to their four-game winless run when they take on Wycombe in the League One round 32. The Accy Stanley are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Chairboys. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but talented midfielder Nathan Butler-Oyedeji could sneak into the starting XI.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and a triumph over Accrington could see them climb to automatic promotion berth. Experienced attacker Sam Vokes should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in a 3-2 win over Derby, but in-form midfielder Lewis Wing should pose the biggest threat for the opposition back-line. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Wycombe looked sharp in front of goal at the weekend.
