Match Preview : Wycombe v Bournemouth

Match Preview : Wycombe v Bournemouth

This weekend Wycombe entertain Bournemouth at Adams park.


The Cherries were only relegated from League One last season after having 10 points deducted by the Football League. This was despite a superb finish to their season which almost saved them from the drop. They won 6 and drew 1 of their last seven matches, showing form which belied their lowly position.

Having to start this season with a further 17 point deduction, Bournemouth started poorly. With only 2 draws and 3 defeats to show for their first five games of the campaign, The Cherries parted company with manager Kevin Bond.

New Boss Jimmy Quinn has started his reign in fine style, with the last two results particularly impressive. The Cherries won 3-1 away at Bradford and followed that up with another 3-1 victory at home to Darlington last weekend.

Although they still languish in 23rd spot courtesy of their points deduction, the in-form Cherries should provide stiff opposition for The Chairboys on Saturday.

Wycombe boss Peter Taylor will no doubt be aware that danger lurks throughout the Cherries team. Rather than having one prolific goalscorer, eight different players have scored for Bournemouth in the League so far this season.

Ex England international Darren Anderton is definitely one to watch, adding as he does, a touch of class to the Cherries' side.



The Blues remain unbeaten this season after last week's goalless draw at league leaders Bury. Their 5 wins and 3 draws so far, have given Wycombe 18 points and only goal difference keeps them in second spot.

Having only conceded 2 goals to date, the Blues' defensive capabilities are there for all to see.

However, with only 8 goals scored in 8 games played, Wycombe fans would feel more confident about their prospects this season, if the team could start putting away more of the chances they create.

Wycombe have not reported any fresh injury problems. Lewis Hunt and Matt Bloomfield are still out of contention and Gary Holt is also unavailable for selection.


With league leaders Bury facing a difficult away game at Aldershot, a win for the Blues on Saturday could put them back at the top of the table. The last home game against Dagenham was a cracker with a superb atmosphere and in the end a well deserved three points. More of the same this weekend would be just what the doctor ordered.
