Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan and Wycombe square off against each other at DW Stadium in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Latics did well to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Sunderland, with the team beating Rotherham thanks to Will Keane’s stoppage-time goal. Due to the busy fixture list, head coach Leam Richardson could opt to make changes to the starting XI. Both Massey and Cousins are pushing for a start.
Wycombe, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, with the team beating both Accrington and Cheltenham in the first two league fixtures. The Chairboys aim to keep their 100% record intact, but beating WIgan at the DW Stadium is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, a close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to watch in the away team will be teenage midfielder Oliver Pendlebury, who scored a brace at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield 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.
