Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Weston Homes Stadium will host postponed League One fixture between Peterborough United and Wycombe Wanderers. Peterborough United have been slipping down the standings week by week, and it has to be noted that they are on a seven-game winless run in all competitions ahead of Tuesday’s match. Since the hosts head into the midweek fixture with the lack of confidence, home win should not be considered.
Wycombe, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Sunderland, with the team beating Rochdale 2-1 in front of home fans. The Blues showed character in the Adams Park clash, with Joe Jacobson scoring the winner from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of the stoppage time. Wycombe are eager to secure promotion to the Championship, and given the Posh’s current form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Maddison):
After spending his youth career at Newcastle United, Marcus Maddison signed a professional contract with the Magpies in the 2012/2013 season. However, he was immediately loaned to Blyth Spartans where he scored one goal in two appearances.
In 2013 the pacey winger was released by Newcastle United, signing a deal with Scottish club St. Jonstone. Due to a hunger for a first-team football Marcus Maddison returns to England in the summer of 2013, signing a contract with Conference Premier club Gateshead. The 180-cm tall footballer scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for the club before joining Peterborough United in 2014.
Maddison has established himself as a first-team regular at Peterborough and he is widely expected to play an important role in the London Road Stadium outfit in the 2019/2020 League One season. The English footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, was born in Durham on September 26, 1993.
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.
