Match Preview: Wycombe v Pompey

All you need to know about League One clash

5 April 2019

Wycombe v Pompey

The Wembley celebrations are starting to die down and Pompey’s focus must return to the bread and butter of league football.

Barnsley and Sunderland are currently in pole position to claim the second automatic promotion spot behind leaders Luton.

But the Blues know that they must continue to pick up points in case those sides slip up in the final few weeks of the season.

Next up is the relatively short trip to face a Wycombe side also desperate for wins, albeit for different reasons.

Gareth Ainsworth’s troops are currently sitting in 17th position and just a couple of points above the drop zone.

And with no side in the bottom half of League One safe from the drop, Wanderers will want to claw themselves up the table.

The Chairboys have not tasted victory in any of their past 10 fixtures and have lost three on the bounce.

You have to go all the way back to January 26 to find the last time they emerged triumphant, with just three draws to show for their efforts since.

Gareth Evans and Brett Pitman were on target in a 2-2 draw when the sides met at Fratton Park earlier in the season.

TEAM NEWS
Bryn Morris is available again for Pompey following a knee problem. He spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Wycombe and scored against the Blues back in September.

But the visitors will be without Andy Cannon (thigh), Dion Donohue (groin), Luke McGee (hand) and Viv Solomon-Otabor (calf).

Nathan Tyson returns from a three-match ban for Wycombe, but Darius Charles (knee) is a long-term absentee.
