Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Tuesday’s football match at Highbury Stadium pits together Fleetwood Town and Wycombe Wanderers. Fleetwood made a promising start to the season, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Peterborough United and AFC Wimbledon, but Doncaster Rovers proved to be a big catch for the Fishermen at the weekend.
Andy Pilley’s troops are determined to get back on course and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from the midweek fixture. Wycombe did well to beat the likes of Bolton and MK Dons on home soil, but they failed to impress in a goalless draw with Bristol Rovers in their first away game of the season. Seeing that the Wanderers produce much butter showings at home than on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on Andy Pilley’s charges.
Highlighted Player (Conor McAleny):
Conor McAleny is a product of Everton youth academy, joining the club from Merseyside in 2003 at the age of 11. Despite the fact that his main position is centre-forward, McAleny is used as both second striker and left winger as well. McAleny did spend his youth career at Goodison Park, but it has to be noted that he made no more than two appearances for the Toffees at senior level.
The English attacker, who was born in Whiston on August 12, 1992, made his first-team debut in a 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on December, 2011. Conor McAleny played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Brentford, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United before signing a deal with Fleetwood Town.
The right-footed striker spent the second half of the 2018/2019 season on loan at Kilmarnock, scoring 3 goals in 11 appearances for the club in the Scottish Premier League.
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.
