On Tuesday April 14, 2015,  I - with seven friends from Canada - made the journey back to Adams Park to watch an important match with Exeter City. 

It was great to see the ground again and catch up with old friends. At that time, both sides were fighting down the stretch to either gain promotion or battle it out in the playoffs. 

The game didn’t disappoint; a 90+12 minute penalty winner from Paul Hayes sent the Chairboys supporters home with a smile and my pal Chris won the 50/50 half-time lottery.

Fast forward eighteen months and once again Exeter City are the visitors. 

Both teams are off to strong starts, but this time Exeter City are top of the league, Wycombe are fourth and I will be watching the match on my tablet thanks to the new iFollow service via the Wycombe website. 

I do miss listening to the commentary from Phil Catchpole and ex-teammate Keith Scott over a coffee at 7am Pacific time, but have really enjoyed watching the games and watching the team grow during the first two months of the season.

There are other similarities too. 

In 2015, Wycombe were reliant on goals from Paul Hayes, an experienced striker of advanced years. 

Paul will forever be a hero to my son Sam. We were in the heart of the Wycombe fans at White Hart Lane when he hit that volley against Tottenham. 

This season has started with three strikers of similar experience and impact. 

Akinfenwa, Mackail-Smith and Tyson have each contributed with goals when needed but just as importantly they have contributed with work rate, providing a glimpse into their character - they are leading by example. 

Thoughts for a speedy recovery go out to Nathan Tyson after what looked like a nasty knee injury suffered last week away at Cambridge.

In the end, my trip down memory lane will have no impact on what is going to happen on Saturday, but just like in 2015, it should be a memorable match.
