PREVIEW Oxford United v Wycombe Wanderers

A full guide to Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 game at the Kassam Stadium

7 October 2022

Sponsored by

Oxford United welcome Wycombe Wanderers to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League 1.

United made changes to the side for their Papa Johns Trophy game at home to Chelsea U21 on Tuesday night including the entire back four. Sam Long, Elliott Moore, Stuart Findlay and Ciaron Brown are all expected to return as are Cameron Brannagan, James Henry, Kyle Jospeh and Marcus Browne.

The one enforced change to the team that drew at Charlton last weekend comes because of an injury to Lewis Bate who is awaiting MRI scan results after a challenge in midweek.

Josh Murphy is close to a return after injury with Sam Baldock not too far behind.


“I know that the Oxford fans won’t really consider this to be a derby, but, I think over the years we have deserved to be worthy opponents for Oxford and I think we can be worthy opponents on Saturday” Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth said.

“I think Karl should be proud of what he’s done as well because when both clubs went through their tough times, Wycombe were considered a small club, not a rival to anyone, and just a walkover or a pushover. And Oxford dropped into the Non Leagueand they were considered not the giants that they were once were. Now though, credit has to go to both clubs and it’s a great derby, of course it is.

“Both similar size clubs, I think Oxford average around 7,000 and we get around 5,000, their history is bigger than ours as they go a long way so it’s a real good derby.

World Mental Health Day is being celebrated globally on Monday 10th October and United will use the fixture with the Chairboys to raise awareness around mental health issues.

YoungMinds will have a presence outside the South Stand handing out key information about the charity and having bucket collectors outside every turnstile at the ground to raise money for such an important cause.

Both teams will also be wearing YoungMinds branded t-shirts during their warm-up before kick-off, with the club using one of these shirts to be signed and auctioned to raise additional funds for the charity.

REPORT Oxford United 0 Wycombe Wanderers 1

U's beaten by Wycombe. Full time report

8 October 2022

A Chris Forino header was enough to give Wycombe Wanderers all three points at the Kassam Stadium this afternoon in a game overshadowed by a medical incident in the crowd that delayed the first half by 45 minutes.

Defender Forino glided home a header in the first half to decide a game in which United had missed the chance to take the lead from the penalty spot before the game's only goal, and then couldn't turn possession into points despite a largely one-sided second half.

United should have been in front before the long pause in the action. An early drive from Sam Long tested visiting keeper Max Stryjek’s handling although that was matched by Simon Eastwood soon after as he dealt with a dipping inswinging corner from Joe Jacobson on 12 minutes.

The game's turning point then came a minute later when a back header from Forino looked to have enough pace on it for the keeper to gather, but Marcus Browne had other ideas and chased it down, touching it past the keeper and being bowled over.

Unfortunately Cameron Brannagan for once proved fallible from the spot, Stryjek pushing his penalty away and James Henry finding the keeper on his feet and making an even better save from the rebound.


None of which mattered too much.

Football is important, but not THAT important. Moments after the penalty the medical incident occurred in the South Stand and the game was held up. Our thoughts are with the supporter and our thanks go to the medical team who responded to the situation superbly.

Understandably, the game restarted in a sombre mood but was brought back into sharp focus after 33 minutes when the visitors took the lead. It was a superb cross that led to the goal, Alfie Mawson drilling the ball in from the left and Forino’s forehead guiding the ball perfectly past the helpless Eastwood to make it 1-0.


United responded positively and might have been level at the break, Ciaron Brown and Cameron Brannagan both seeing efforts deflected off target. They then laid siege to the Wycombe goal after the interval and invited their opponents to hit them on the break if they could. That's not always a great thing to do against a side with the experience of players like Garath McCleary and Sam Vokes, and at times United lived dangerously but they coped and defended well when required.

With the biggest home crowd of the season right behind them, United did all they could, but every time they got sight of goal a leg came out to block the shot or a header nicked the ball off the person behind. Ciaron Brown launched throw after throw into the danger zone, Brannagan blasted two shots over the bar, crosses were hacked clear and nothing quite fell United's way.

Taylor saw a last minute drive saved at full stretch by Stryjek, but it simply wasn't United's day.

In football terms a poor result, no hiding from that. And yet, seeing an ambulance take a fan away from the stadium maybe reminds you of the bigger picture.
