Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After surviving Bradford City in the FA Cup, Wycombe will be aiming to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Stevenage on Matchday 17. The Chairboys failed to win the previous four league matches, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Boro in front of home fans. Experienced forward Sam Vokes, who limped off with injury in a goalless draw with Cambridge United, is unlikely to recover in time to face Stevenage.
The visitors, on the other hand, did well to beat Derby County 3-1 in front of home fans before the FA Cup break, but seeing that Wycombe are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Buckinghamshire.
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.
