Tough game for us, this. We’ve lost 1-0 in this fixture the last couple of seasons and Wycombe have been on great form lately. Still, with out away form we always have a chance and we’ve got to be confident of getting a result. That Eze lad scored two beauties last week so looks a talent plus Akinfenwa always seems to do well against us.

Moore-Taylor should hopefully be back which will be huge for us but otherwise I’d expect an unchanged team. Stockley and Reid will continue up top.

Thinking this will be a draw. 1-1. Reid for us and O’Nein for Wycombe.

Looking forward to this, and more importantly, looking forward to keeping up with my 100% winning record this season.

WWFC 2-3 ECFC
Akinfenwa - Stockley x2
Eze - Reid

Att: 4,189 (550 from Deb'n)

Tough game. Looking forward to it. We know what Ainsworths side will be like, lets hope we dont let them get away with it.

Could go either way, so I'm thinking a 1-1 draw.

Wycombe 0-3 Exeter City.

As long as we score nice and early they won't be able to use their normal approach of time wasting, be interesting to see if all their ball boys disappear again like last time they were leading towards the end..

Seems we've cut back on the dark arts we've had to put up with under Ainsworth for 4 long tedious years now we go out on attack and are the leading scorers in The Football League so we're much better to watch,with Eze,Akinfenwa,Mackaill-Smith and Umerah all in fine form i'm sure we'll score it's our defence that worries me as we've let in loads as well,we miss Pierre then again which team wouldn't?
Moomin O'Nien is out injured along with Nathan Tyson and Mkichael Harriman,have a safe trip guys.

Could be plenty of goals then as we tend to still concede a few, although we are looking more resolute than previous years.

I guess O’Nien and Harriman are big misses for your boys but you’re up there for a reason so should be a really good game.

We've got Jombati as cover for Harriman and Sam Saunders to cover for O'Nien and with Eze playing alongside Saunders they're the ones to create chances for the strikers,it's no coincidence that the dark arts have decreased since O'Nien got injured he's a dirty little fucker and gobby in players ears as well.

Is this the same O'Nien that we wanted last year? From Watford...

Might have even been the year before.*

Not overly confident with this one. We tend to struggle at Wycombe which often isn't helped by us conceding the opening goal and them doing what they do best by constantly time wasting and feigning injuries, which is why scoring 1st will be so important on Saturday. They have started the season well which hopefully for the fans who travel could mean the game is a more open/entertaining match than the past couple of meetings.

Hopefully at least one of Croll or JMT are fit to partner Troy Brown as I don't think we'd get away with playing Moxey at centre back like we did against Carlisle. Would also be tempted to bring Tillson back into the XI but expect we could continue with the James/Boateng partnership in midfield. Reid is probably due a goal but it wouldn't surprise me to see another 1-0 loss.

We rarely keep a clean sheet mate so you will score that's why i think there will be a few goals as we are scoring for fun as well and i still think it will end up 2-2 maybe even 3-3.

what beers do they have? last time i went it was just crappy lager from what i remember?
A couple of ales,lager and soft drinks. Just a heads up there are temporary traffic lights on the approach to Hillbottom Road so expect some delays.

Beer tent was very poor. Very disappointing lack of choice and quality. BBQ burger was passable although not great.

Good to keep a clean sheet, either team could have nicked all the points but a draw was a fair result.
We should have brought macalinden on sooner in my opinion might have changed the game.

Lighting a flare in the away end at the start of the game while quite funny was a tad tinpot.

Would have taken a 0-0 at the start of play.

Forever grateful to Akinfenwa for missing two absolute sitters that I think I would have scored.

Solid point and a game we’d probably have lost a year ago. Akinfenwa missed a couple of sitters and we were unusually disjointed going forward by the sound of things.

Definite point gained and now onto an even tougher game vs Luton.
