“We have improved out of possession. I think the first half hour there towards the end of last season (a 2-0 deafeat) we were poor and our pressing strategy was wrong. “I think we’re a different animal now out of possession and hopefully we can go and show that tonight. ” MK Dons manager Liam Manning: “It’s a really tough game. Bolton have got a lot of quality in their side and they will be well-organised so we know it will be hard but I want the players to step up and own the challenge.

Opposition Focus Under the tutelage of Gareth Ainsworth, Wycombe Wanderers have enjoyed a spellbinding journey, which has sparked memories in each and every campaign. Fluctuating between rankings, the side went from within a defeat from dropping to Non-League in 2014 to gaining a first-ever promotion to the Championship over five years later. Although they returned to the third tier instantly despite almost performing the majestic great escape, they dragged themselves to the play-offs last season, falling short to Sunderland in the Wembley final.
Head-to-Head Wycombe Wanderers Wins: 15 Cambridge United Wins: 5 Draws: 2 Down Memory Lane Where the U’s are concerned, they will hope the phrase ‘third time lucky’ proves fruitful after their two previous clashes in 2022 have resulted in convincing Chairboys victories. Inspired attacking displays from Anis Mehmeti and Sam Vokes helped secure midweek 3-0 and 1-4 romps in the midweek clashes. You’d have to go back well over six years to recall the last time United claimed success over their opponents.
The streaky side bounced back in some style, beating Oxford United, Peterborough United and then MK Dons last time out. A testing start to the campaign looks to be behind the Chairboys now – they’re hunting five on the bounce in all competitions. Ainsworth’s men have a difficult spine to dissect. Joe Jacobson adds an immense level of creativity from the left, whilst the returning Alfie Mawson adds pedigree after a successful spell in the Championship. Lewis Wing and Nick Freeman pull the strings, allowing freedom for Anis Mehmeti, who’s adding goals to his game and enjoying playing behind hitman Sam Vokes.
Well-drilled, their tactics may not be easy on the eye to many, but their doggedness and desire is undoubtedly effective. A 3-0 dismantling of Burton Albion on the opening day gave an indication that the Blues could be a force, but that transpired into three successive losses. Newcomers Barnsley were put to the sword next, 0-3 away from home, before the shares were spoiled against Charlton Athletic and Fleetwood Town. A Jason McCarthy finish sealed the points against Accrington Stanley, but the four-game unbeaten run switched to another three-match losing streak in an excruciating schedule against promotion challengers Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday and Plymouth Argyle.
Reflecting on the loss, the Head Coach said, “We’ve lost way too many games. That should be just a rubbish 0-0 in the end after the first half but we haven’t found a way of taking points from games at the moment when they’re running away from us. " Overall, the U’s have now lost seven of their last eight league games. Included in that is five in succession, which hasn’t happened since they returned to the Football League, with one goal scored in that time. Although the chips are down, character has been shown on many occasions with this current group, can they recapture that spirit? On the team news front, a similar squad is anticipated. Harrison Dunk looks the likeliest to return to the fold next, whereas Dimitar Mitov and Brandon Haunstrup are still a few weeks from selection.
In 2016, they kickstarted March with a resolute 1-0 win thanks to Josh Coulson’s deflected header - his last for the side. On the evening, it moved the team within three points of the play-offs, but they ultimately fell short under Shaun Derry. The overall record between the sides makes for good reading for the hosts. The aforementioned victory is the solitary one in 10, with eight defeats in that time too.

PREVIEW: MK Dons v WanderersLeague One football resumes on Tuesday night as Wanderers head to MK Dons. Following a pause in the action last weekend when all fixtures were postponed as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the fixture schedule returns. It will be just a fourth away game of the season for the Whites after their trip to Cheltenham last Saturday was called off. A first win at Stadium MK could lift Wanderers into the top six of League One. Players and staff will wear black arms bands and there will be a minute’s silence and playing of the national anthem before kick-off as football gets its chance to honour the life and service of Queen Elizabeth II. Manager quotes Ian Evatt: “They’ve lost some really good personnel that would affect any team really. “They have embedded a lot of new players and they’re getting used to the system and the manager’s ideas. “But we think fundamentally it will be the same (approach).
Form Guide Wycombe Wanderers: LWWWW Cambridge United: LLLWL United’s Approach The U’s approach the important tie desperate to put things right following a frustrating 0-1 defeat against Port Vale on home soil just three days prior. Despite being kept in the encounter thanks to a string of fine saves from Will Mannion in the first half, Bonner’s men did not conjure up a shot on target, which was punished by an unfortunate Paul Digby own goal late in the encounter.
