Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Whaddon Road will host Saturday’s football game between Cheltenham Town and Wycombe Wanderers. Cheltenham came from behind to share the spoils with Crewe in their opener, but they even missed a couple of clear-cut opportunities to seal the victory in the dying minutes of the match as well. The Robins are now on a quest to record their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Wycombe.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 2-1 win over Accrington, with the team having no fewer than 17 goal attempts in the season opener. Given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced Jamaica international Garath McCleary, who scored a brace in the opening match of the season.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
