Preview:  Wycombe Wanderers v Aldershot Town


Wycombe Wanderers entertain Aldershot Town on Saturday in their 34th league game of the season.


The league table currently shows Wycombe in 2nd place with 56 points from 33 games and Aldershot in 17th spot with 38 points from 33 games

Aldershot's Away Record.....Won 4 - Drawn 8 - Lost 5 - Pts 20 (Rank-16)

Wycombe's Home Record....Won 9 - Drawn 4 - Lost 4 - Pts 31 (Rank-4)


The Blues will aim to put the disappointment of Tuesday's thrashing at Chesterfield behind them by taking all three points from a Shots' side who haven't won any of their last eight games.

The Hampshire outfit are tough to beat though, and it's interesting to compare their recent record of 6 draws and 1 defeat in their last 7 games, with Wycombe's 2 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats in the same period.

Over the course of the season so far, the Shots have lost 11 league games to Wycombe's 9.

Both sides have played 39 games in all competitions and the Blues have scored 21 more goals than Aldershot, but have conceded 2 more.

The Shots have won only 4 times on the road this season, picking up all three points at Torquay, Oxford, Burton and Barnet.

Their 5 away-defeats have come at Port Vale, Crewe, Macclesfield, Rotherham and Gillingham.
