Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Adams Park pits together Wycombe and Gillingham, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 12. The Chairboys are eyeing a quick return to the Championship, with the team sitting in 5th place ahead of the visit of Gillingham. Wycombe aim to build on back-to-back wins over Shrewsbury (2-1) and Morecambe (4-3), and given their fine home record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the promotion-chasing side.
Gareth Ainsworth should stick to the 4-1-3-2 formation with Horgan and Vokes up front. The Gills, on the other hand, are only two points clear of the relegation zone. Gillingham failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Wigan at the weekend, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Wycombe’s party at Adams Park. In their last meeting in the League One the Gills defeated the Chairboys 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Jason McCarthy):
Jason McCarthy is a product of the famous Southampton youth academy. McCarthy started his youth career in his hometown club back in 2002 and he made his senior debut with the Saints in the Premier League on December 26, 2014, coming as a substitute for Nathaniel Clyne in a 3-1 away victory at Crystal Palace.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall, the English defender signed a three-year deal with Barnsley in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee. Jason McCarthy was struggling to secure a first-team football at the Oakwell stadium outfit and, as a result, he returned to Wycombe Wanderers on August 9, 2018, penning a three-year contract with the League One side.
His preferred foot is right, his main position centre-back, but he is used as a right-back as well. Jason McCarthy was born in Southampton on November 7, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Gillingham):
Founded back in 1893, Gillingham FC are an English club that compete in the League One. The Gills are well known for their blue shirts with black stripes, but they wear white shirts with a little yellow and blue, and yellow shirts when playing on the travels.
Priestfield Stadium is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,582 spectators. Gillingham City have been playing at the stadium since the club’s foundation. Speaking of the club’s main rivals, over the years the Gills have built up a rivalry to Swindon Town. However, it has to be noted that Swindon fans do not consider Gillingham their biggest rivals.
Former goalkeeper Roy Hillyard is the Gillingham City player with the most appearances. The English shot-stopper played for Gillingham City from 1974 to 1991, making 655 appearances for the club. Brian Yeo is the team’s all-time top scorer, netting 149 goals in 387 appearances for the club from 1963 to 1975.
