The Opposition View: Wycombe

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 17/11/2005

THE big clash in League Two this weekend sees second place Grimsby take on the unbeaten Wycombe Wanderers, who currently lie third. Rob Sedgwick caught up with Wycombe fan Ian Baker to find out what the Chairboys' view of the big clash was.

Nathan TysonHow big a difference will the loss of Nathan Tyson (left) make?

Hopefully not a lot. Tyson was missing for the game at Blundell Park and the 1-0 win was our best performance of the season.

How much will you get for him, and how much will be ploughed back into the first team?

Roughly £700,000, a club record, with £150,000 going to Reading in a sell-on clause. Considering the club is £2.7 million in debt most of the money will go to cover this.

Do you think you are drawing too many games?

Well, we're not losing any. But it would be nice to turn the draws into wins.

In which area are Wycombe strongest: defence, midfield or attack?

Midfield probably now, certainly attacking midfield.

What sort of formation/tactics can we expect?

4-4-2, with Betsy joining forward to join the attack.

Which players are currently injured or suspended?

Suspended: none. Injured: Keith Ryan and Stefan Oakes

What players should we look out for?

Kevin BetsyKevin Betsy (left): a pacy winger/forward who will be looking to go through the Grimsby defence with as much ease as last time.

Which of the teams you've played so far his impressed the most?

No-one. It's been a very poor league.

What are your abiding memories of recent Grimsby/Wycombe games?

Grimsby 0 Wycombe 1 in October (the day we went top of the league).

Which away team brings the most fans to Adams Park?

Oxford will do - for local reasons

Finally, a scoreline prediction?

2-1 Wycombe. Wycombe to complete the double!

Thanks to Wycombe fan Ian Baker of for the interview.
