Match Preview

Same again for Chairboys Wycombe manager Gary Waddock is poised to name an unchanged side for the derby day visit of Oxford. Defender Dave Winfield has missed the last two games with a hamstring strain sustained in the 2-0 win over Morecambe on the opening day of the season and the former Aldershot man is still struggling. He will not be rushed back so Leon Johnson will continue to deputise. Left-back Andy Sandell is fit now after missing pre-season following his move from Aldershot while forward Stuart Beavon is close to a return after breaking his leg at the back-end of last season. Captain Gareth Ainsworth is set to make his 500th career appearance as the Chairboys look for a first league win over their near neighbours since February 2006. Oxford boss Chris Wilder is also set to name an unchanged squad. United are yet to win a league game since gaining promotion from the Blue Square Premier but Wilder is confident his side can earn a valuable victory against the npower League Two promotion favourites. He told the club's official website: "I don't think there will be any changes unless something happens in the next two days. "The players have done great over the past three games so we need to notch it up a touch. "We are going to have to play well and we understand that but there won't be any surprises from us." Defender Rhys Day will not feature as he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Match Report

Bull on fire for Wanderers Wycombe goalkeeper Nikki Bull produced an inspired display to deny local rivals Oxford their first win since their return to the Football League as the sides played out a 0-0 draw. Bull made three outstanding second-half saves to frustrate James Constable (twice) and Matt Green as the Us - who hit the woodwork twice - were left cursing their luck. Wycombe dominated the first half and Matt Phillips wasted a golden opportunity to put them ahead when he slotted Jon-Paul Pittman's pin-point cross wide from eight yards. Oxford's main threat came from set-pieces in the first period as Simon Heslop curled a 30-yard free-kick inches wide before crossing for Constable to glance a header just past the post. Wycombe's Andy Sandell had a curling 25-yard free-kick pushed wide by Us keeper Ryan Clarke on the stroke of half-time. Oxford improved dramatically after the break and Matt Green raced clear but fired against the crossbar, while Wanderers midfielder Kevin Betsy chipped the ball over the bar one-on-one at the other end. Bull then produced three brilliant saves to preserve a point for Wycombe - denying Constable from point-blank range and then tipping his fierce 25-yard shot onto the crossbar, before saving from Green one-on-one.
