Match Preview: Wycombe Wanderers

All Set For The 2018/19 Campaign To Get Underway

3 August 2018

A new-look Blackpool takes on newly-promoted Wycombe Wanderers to kick-off the 2018/19 Sky Bet League One campaign tomorrow.

Several summer additions will make competitive debuts for the club at Adams Park, with no less than 12 new faces arriving at Bloomfield Road during the off-season. 

Though unbeaten in pre-season, only the fitness and tactical preparation will count for something when the intensity lifts a few notches for the real match action. 

Team News: 

Former Blackpool loan 'keeper Ryan Allsop is set to start between the sticks for Wycombe, having returned to the club for a second spell this summer. Another ex-Pool player, Nathan Tyson, will have an injury assessed, while Darius Charles and Scott Kashket hope to recover from knocks. 

The Seasiders will make a late decision on the availability of Jimmy Ryan following a knee compalint, however on-loan Leeds United man Paudie O'Connor has recovered from a dead leg. Fellow summer signing Ryan McLaughlin is unlikely to feature, though. 

Man with the Whistle: 

Nicholas Kinsey, yet to oversee a Blackpool fixture, will officiate at Adams Park. He refereed in Sky Bet League One and Two last season and showed 124 yellow cards and six red cards in 29 games.

Seasiders Open Campaign With A Point

4 August 2018

Blackpool opened up the new Sky Bet League One campaign with a goal-less draw at Wycombe Wanderers.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, The Seasiders best opportunity fell to Chris Taylor, who struck the post with a first-half free-kick.

The hosts, recently promoted to the division, were reduced to 10-men late on when Michael Harriman received a second yellow card.

Manager Gary Bowyer handed out eight competitive debuts for this fixture, with two of those, Harry Pritchard and Michael Nottingham, making their first appearances in The EFL.

The first two opportunities of the game fell to Wycombe’s Paris Cowan-Hall, though he was unable to test Mark Howard with either effort.

Adebayo Akinfenwa muscled his way in at the back post minutes later, however he couldn’t divert his header on target.

A deep searching free-kick then presented Akinfenwa with another chance to challenge for the ball, which he duly met by only found the side-netting.

After quick water-break, Akinfenwa tried his luck again, this time driving the ball low at Mark Howard, who saved with his feet.

Blackpool, having been peppered under the high ball in the opening stages, started to build up some momentum on the half-hour mark. Both Joe Dodoo and Nathan Delfouneso got on the end of great left-hand side deliveries but couldn’t find the target.

Another dangerous set-play for the hosts saw Anthony Stewart run off his man at the back and send the ball across the six-yard box, but the supporting Randell Williams skied the ball over.

A surging run from Joe Dodoo on the counter-attack ended with the on-loan Rangers man being fouled just outside the box. Chris Taylor stepped up to take the free-kick and watched his effort bounce back off the post.

Half-Time: Wycombe Wanderers 0 Blackpool 0

A change at the interval saw John O’Sullivan start the second-half for Blackpool in place of Michael Nottingham.

It was the home side who threatened on goal though, as Akinfenwa headed over from a corner.

At the other end, Nathan Delfouneso did well to get a yard ahead of his man and deliver the ball across the six-yard box. Unfortunately, Harry Pritchard was unable to get on the end of it.

Paudie O’Connor made a vital sliding challenge to block a rasping Wycombe strike, prior to Mark Howard parrying away another effort from Michael Harriman.

Howard was then called into action again, this time to prevent Randell Williams from finding the bottom, far corner.

Blackpool introduced Armand Gnanduillet off the bench for Joe Dodoo with 17 minutes of the game remaining, while Craig Mackail-Smith took the place of Adebayo Akinfenwa for the home side.

Neither substitution brought about a change in fortunes, though Wycombe were reduced to 10-men with a minute of the game remaining due to Michael Harriman receiving a second yellow card.

One final opportunity fell to John O'Sullivan in the last minute, however a superb sliding block denied him. 

Full-Time: Wycombe Wanderers 0 Blackpool 0
