PREVIEW: A look at Saturday's away game

Wycombe next up for the Blues

28 September 2023

Wycombe Wanderers v Carlisle United, Saturday 30 September, kick off 3pm


The Chairboys were on a five-game unbeaten League One run heading into last Saturday's away game at Charlton. They thought they were heading for at least a point in that one after West Ham loanee Freddie Potts had levelled things up ahead of the hour mark, but the Addicks struck twice in the last 10 minutes to claim the victory. 

Back-to-back defeats at the start of the season acted as a bit of a wake-up call, with goals hard to come by through those early stages. Nine goals from the following six league outings suggests that issue has been remedied. 

Sat bang in mid-table, they added forward Kieran Sadlier as part of the tweaking of their attacking options following his recent release from League One rivals Bolton after the window had closed.

Off the field there could be changes afoot with owner Rob Couhig announcing that he's likely to sell the club within the next four years.

The US businessman bought a 75% stake from the Wycombe Supporters' Trust almost three-and-a-half years ago.

The club reached the Championship under Gareth Ainsworth almost immediately after the takeover had gone through, but they suffered relegation following a tough season at that level. 

who watch

Experienced forward Sam Vokes is into his third season with his current club and reminded everybody of the threat he brings with the first goal in the recent 2-0 victory over Blackpool.

He has 24 goals in 98 appearances in all competitions for the Chairboys and knows how to be a real pain in the proverbial in and around the box.

Creating space and chances for others is a big part of his game these days and he's had a total of 23 shots in league action so far this term. That tells us that if there's a gap, he'll give it a go.

  Carlisle wins Draws Wycombe wins
League 5 9 8
Total 5 9 8

Carlisle and Wycombe met for the first time in 1993, but the teams went on to become regular foes until the last time they met in Ferbuary 2018. 

And it’s Wycombe who have had the best of the 22 meetings having claimed eight victories compared to Carlisle’s five. 

A draw is the most popular result between the two, with nine games seeing the points shared. 

There was real drama at Adams Park in February 2018. United went into a huge chunk of added time at the end of an all-action affair ahead thanks to Danny Grainger (pen), Jamie Devitt and Cole Stockton. But Marcus Bean and Paris Cowan-Hall stole the show when they both netted way beyond the 90-minute mark, stealing the points for the hosts.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

There were plenty of goals at Brunton Park in October 2017 with Reggie Lambe and Jamie Devitt (pen) sending the Blues into a two-goal lead ahead of the break. Sam Saunders brought the visitors right back into it on the stroke of half-time. Akinfenwa levelled late in the day, but Lambe restored the lead and seemingly the win. But Paris Cowan-Hall made sure Wycombe went home with a point when he scored deep into time added on.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT: Wycombe 2 - 0 United

Report from the Saturday afternoon away game

30 September 2023

United were at Wycombe for the first time since 2018 in League One action on Saturday afternoon.

The 18 were unchanged from the last outing, with Maguire and Plange once more leading the line.

10-man United were unable to make a second-half rally count as they were undone by strikes either side of the break from the Chairboys.

The Blues were undermanned for just over an hour after keeper Jokull Andresson had been caught unawares as he placed the ball for a kicked clearance. The experienced Sam Vokes had lurked, hidden from view, and sprinted to steal it with the Carlisle fans behind the goal chorusing a warning.

Vokes angled away and tumbled as the big stopper tried to make amends for the lapse in concentration. The referee blew for the free kick and produced a straight red, we think for handball.

It was a slow start from the away team and the Chairboys created the first opening when McCleary centred. Pattenden was at the far post but he couldn’t keep it down.

The hosts kept the pressure on and a run of set pieces caused problems. Former-Blue Richard Keogh had a volley charged down when he got on the end of one, and Forino was disappointed as he found the outside of the upright when he had space to work in.

United showed with a lovely ball forward from deep from Gibson that had Plange interested. A lobbed touch had Stryjek scrambling but it came to rest on the roof of the net.

Hanlan, Forino and Vokes all had half chances, with Carlisle defending their lines well, but the 29th minute sending off incident proved to be a catalyst for a devastating spell.

Tomas Holy was the replacement, and his first duty was to see the free kick over the bar. Carlisle broke, and Fin Back was left with his head in his hands as he found the outside of the post.

But Wycombe mounted a second attack and Huntington was adjudged to have scythed through Garath McCleary, with the whistle immediately blown. Luke Leahy found the bottom corner from the spot.

The home team smelled blood and Vokes was poised to pull the trigger, only to be denied by a well-timed lunge from Back.

Joe Garner was brought on to replace Huntington for the second period, and the change in shape saw the Cumbrians edge on top. Guy sent one over from distance, and Gibson had a snapshot blocked after he’d danced through.

Garner volleyed high during the period of pushing forward, and the visitors thought they’d done the trick when Maguire latched onto a neat through ball. He was denied by a combination of brave defending and goalkeeping.

There was more frustration from the resulting corner. Moxon delivered it with power and Lavelle claimed a push as his thundering header skipped an inch past the upright.

Carlisle kept knocking on the door and the home wall did it’s job with a 25-yard Moxon free kick. And Gibson had another teasing run stifled just as he shaped to take a punt at the target.

The killer blow was dealt with 15 minutes left to play after Lavelle had initially got in the way of a Hanlan stinger. Vokes took over, and his slick turn created unexpected space. He kept his shot low and it found the bottom corner.

The Chairboys ran the clock down through the closing stages and claimed the points.
