    In the Wycombe squad is ex-Barnsley player, Jason McCarthy, We may also face the
    evergreen Adebayo Akinfewa, a mere 38 years of age

    The Reds are unbeaten in 11 matches, winning 8 & drawing 3, scoring 16 goals &
    conceding 5 goals
    We are currently top of the 10-game form table

    We are currently 6th in the championship (on 61 points, level with 5th-placed Reading) after

    goals), recent signing Carlton Morris (5 goals), Callum Styles (4 goals) with another recent

    Past history between the clubs:
    There have been only 7 previous matches between the 2 clubs. Barnsley have won 3 games,
    Wycombe 1 game with 3 draws
    The reverse fixture at Oakwell was a 2-1 Barnsley win with a converted penalty for each
    On statistics, this should clearly be a Barnsley win but we need to remember that the earlier game
    this season was a hard-fought, tough victory for the Reds. Wycombe, having won on Saturday v
    Preston are fighting for their survival in the Championship so we should take nothing for granted.
    However, given our recent performances & success, we should be confident of another 3 points &
    cementing our playoff place
    The lads in the Red All Over YouTube show have slightly differing scores in mind but are as one
    with their predictions for a Reds victory:
    Joe & Josh say 1-0 to Barnsley
    Alan says 2-0 to the Reds
    Andy says 2-1 to the Reds
