Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has stated that his Wanderers team will have ‘all hands to the pump’, as a flurry of home fixtures beckons for the Chairboys.

Following their 2-2 draw at Hartlepool United on November 6 at Victoria Park in the FA Cup first round, Wycombe will now play their next four matches at home across 11 days.

The first of the four will be the EFL Trophy tie against Burton Albion on November 9 and then the league bout versus Portsmouth battle on November 13.

The replay against Hartlepool in the world's oldest knockout football competition will take place four days later on November 17, before their fourth and final match in the week-and-a-half stay at home will be against Bolton Wanderers.

Rotations are likely, with many development players expected to play in the tie against Burton, giving several of the first-team squad a rest.

Both the Chairboys and Albion are out of the competition, with the fixture, therefore, being a dead rubber.

However, with the Portsmouth match four days later now being confirmed as on, the Wanderers boss hopes to give players valuable minutes as we head closer to the festive fixture list.

The fixture was in doubt due to international call-ups for two of Wycombe and Portsmouth's players.

Speaking after the draw at Victoria Park, he said: “A replay after the Portsmouth game will mean it’s going to be all hands to the pump and when I can put in Chris Forino and Adam Przybek who played well, with Tjay De Barr making a cameo at the end, on top of Anis Mehmeti and Sullay Kaikai getting minutes, we have got a squad strong enough to compete with this challenging fixture list.

“I am looking forward to seeing how we are tested in the coming weeks.

“However, back to winning ways in the league on Saturday will be a big bonus for me.

“I am looking forward to the next few weeks as we have got a deluge of exciting fixtures taking us into the Christmas period, and if we are in and around the top, then we have got a chance.”

The draw in the North East against the Pools means Wanderers are now winless in three matches, drawing two, losing one.
