Wycombe Versus Northampton - Game Off

Heavy rain has put paid to Town's clash with Wanderers

The Adams Park pitch has been deemed unplayable meaning frustration for Northampton and a midweek trip between now and the end of the season in what could be a crucial game for their promotion hopes.

Northampton had been looking to keep the pressure on Port Vale and Burton Albion above them while their hosts were keen to reach the 50-point mark that should guarantee safety.

Gareth Ainsworth had recently taken over as Wanderers boss when they played at Sixfields earlier in the season and told his club's official website on Friday afternoon: "I think we’ll give them a good game. It’s a different Wycombe, it’s a different spirit now even though it’s the same players.

"We’ve grown as a team and as a club, but I’m sure they have as well. To be in the top six at this stage of the season is very strong and the table doesn’t lie."

Aidy Boothroyd meanwhile had seen his side gain a vital late point at Morecambe in midweek and his main pre-match dilemma was whether to stick with the 4-5-1 formation that he had employed at the Globe Arena before throwing Bayo Akinfenwa and Clive Platt into the fray later on.
