Match Preview – Wycombe vs Barnsley

Last Updated: 07/12/18 4:55pm

In-form Wycombe will field a third different goalkeeper in four games for the League One clash with Barnsley.

Having been unable to secure extensions for first Matt Ingram and then David Stockdale, who excelled in the win over Accrington 10 days ago, Nottingham Forest’s Stephen Henderson is the latest to arrive on a seven-day emergency loan. Wycombe’s two senior keepers, Ryan Allsop and Yves Ma-Kalambay, both remain sidelined by injury.

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Matt Bloomfield have returned to full training but will not be risked unnecessarily with Wanderers on a fine run of form, including five straight home league wins. Scott Kashket is pushing for a start after making a big impact off the bench at Accrington.

Barnsley will be without suspended defender Dimitri Cavare. The Tykes also have a trio of injury absentees – winger Ryan Hedges (broken toe), midfielder Kenny Dougall (ankle) and winger Lloyd Isgrove.

Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel could make changes at the back after being unhappy with his side’s defending in recent weeks. The fifth-placed Tykes have conceded nine goals in their last three games in all competitions, including four in their most recent league outing at Sunderland.
