Our prediction for this League 1 match:
A place in the League One playoffs final will be at stake when Fleetwood Town and Wycombe Wanderers face each other in the League One playoffs semis double-header. The two teams were level on points in the standings before the coronavirus football break, meaning that a close encounter is on the cards in the first leg. A man to watch in the home team will be Paddy Madden, who scored 15 goals in the regular season.
Gareth Ainsworth’s troops, on the other hand, are still relying on veteran Adebayo Akinfenwa, who is likely to lead the line for the visitors against the Fishermen. When Fleetwood Town and Wycombe Wanderers face each other in the League One, a low-scoring is guaranteed, and seeing that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last nine meetings, we do not believe that we will see goals galore at Highbury Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
