Match Preview: Wycombe Wanderers v Norwich City

26 February 2021

Norwich City travel to Adams Park for only the fourth time in history for Sunday's Sky Bet Championship game against Wycombe Wanderers (12pm KO).

Our Match Preview looks at the Chairboys' season so far, the officials in charge of the match and how you can follow the action from home.

The opposition

Five wins, eight draws and 18 defeats have rooted Wycombe to the bottom of the division ahead of this weekend's game, their 23 points putting them five behind Sheffield Wednesday in 23rd.

Recent form hasn't been too bad, however, the last five games resulting in losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County, a draw against Millwall, and wins over Huddersfield Town and Reading.

In fact, Wycombe beat Reading on Tuesday night with ten men, Fred Onyedinma's second half strike followed by the sending off of Ryan Tafazolli.

The club's top scorers this season are Joe Jacobson and Scott Kashket, who each have four goals in all competitions.

Head-to-head

There have only been five meetings between Norwich and Wycombe since 1994, and City have won all of them.

Last time we met, Gareth Ainsworth's side were no pushovers, Kashket equalising in the 12th minute after Teemu Pukki scored in the third. It was the 91st minute when a Mario Vrancic free-kick sealed the win.

As for our previous trip to Adams Park, that came in September 2018 when a Jordan Rhodes hat-trick and a header from Tom Trybull contributed to a 4-3 win in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Ref watch

Robert Jones has been appointed to take charge of Sunday's game, Scott Ledger and Derek Eaton his assistants and Sam Purkiss the fourth official.

The last time Jones saw over a Norwich game was for March 2019's 1-0 win at home to Swansea City, Emi Buendia the scorer that day.
