Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Morecambe and Cambridge United, Charlton will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Wycombe on Matchday 38. The Red Robins have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Talented forward Miles Leaburn should be fit for Saturday’s clash despite suffering a minor injury at the weekend.
Meanwhile, the Chairboys aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Barnsley. Wycombe aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, but we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out as they have been in a much better form of late than the visitors. There are no fresh injury worries in the away side ahead of the trip to London, but fit-again midfielder David Wheeler should be recalled to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder as well.
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.
