Wycombe v Gillingham preview

Wycombe boss Gary Waddock may name an unchanged side.

The Chairboys got off to a flying start last weekend with a 3-1

win over league new boys York.

Defender Dave Winfield and Dennis Oli both returned to the bench

in that fixture after recovering from injury and will be pushing

for a starting place.

Striker Oli, who came on as a substitute, will be hoping for a

bigger contribution against his former club.

Defender Charles Dunne missed Saturday’s game after picking up a

knock in last week’s League Cup fixture and is expected to be

unavailable again.

Matt McClure is Waddock’s only other injury concern, the striker

is still suffering with tendonitis of the knee.

Martin Allen will make a number of changes to his Gillingham


The Gills’ opening-day 3-1 win over Bradford was played in

energy-sapping heat at the Priestfield and Allen has suggested that

he may need to rotate his starting line-up for the clash against

the Chairboys.

Myles Weston came off the bench to seal the victory on Saturday

and will be favourite to get a starting place.

Allen told Kent News: “We have a squad of 20 travelling to

Wycombe and I feel we need some fresh legs in our team.

“This is our third game of the week, with one of them being

played at about 3,000 degrees!

“We have players chomping at the bit for their turn and in my

mind they have worked hard and when they have played, they have

done well.”
