Wycombe v Stanley

15 August 2016

A second away trip of the week sees Stanley travel to Wycombe Wanderers.

After weekend defeat to Barnet the Reds will be out to make amends at Adams Park.

[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fab72e-6c49658d-0122"]Stanley hit the road for a second time in a week looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season at Barnet at the weekend.

The Reds return to Adams Park just months after their last trip which saw them cement last season's play-off spot.

So far this season has been a mixed bag and John Coleman will be keen for his team to start to discover their best form[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34ebb72e-6c49658d-0122"]It's one won and lost one in the league for the Reds so far, with a 3-2 opening day win over Doncaster followed by Saturday's 2-0 reverse at Barnet.

Coleman's men also drew 0-0 with Bradford in the EFL Cup, eventually prevailing on penalties.

That means they'll be looking to find the net for the first time since that opening day win tomorrow night.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]

Two seasons ago the Chairboys were beaten play-off finalists after a couple of years spent battling relegation.

Under the guidance of Gareth Ainsworth they lost their opening game of 2016/17 against Crawley but picked up their first victory of the campaign against Grimsby at the weekend.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Manager" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34ebb72e-6c49f96c-5bea"]Having played for the likes of Preston, Wimbledon and QPR during his playing days, Gareth Ainsworth took over managerial duties at Wycombe in 2011.

He guided the club to safety in his debut season and again in 2014, before taking his side to the play-off final in 2015.
