Wycombe are yet to play a match in the competition and therefore have a busy schedule between now and the end of November, when the Group Stage ends.

  • What they said...

Following defeat at Colchester on Saturday, Mark Sampson says that a victory in the EFL Trophy would do wonders for the team's confidence and mindset.

“We have got a big game on Tuesday night now. We need to go there and win, simple as that, regardless of the competition. This team have got to get the mindset of finding ways to win football matches, that has got to start now for Tuesday night.

“We have to show some leadership now as a group of players and staff and stand up and say I am going to be the person that turns this around. If everyone has that mindset, collectively, we will start to see performances and results go in the direction we want to go.

“It starts with every individual doing that, you have got to look yourselves in the mirror and say it is up to me today to make an impact. That has got to be the mentality.”

Despite going great guns in League One currently, Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth says he is desperate for success in the EFL Trophy too.

"With the squad we have at the moment, any sort of change in the starting 11 still leaves us strong. A lot of clubs will change their whole 11, or give the youngsters a go in this competition, but after our exploits three seasons ago, reaching the semi-finals, I would like to see how far we can go again.


"With vital game time for some of our squad, but always with an attitude to win, I’m sure we will see a very competitive game and I’m hoping we can get as many fans as possible down to the stadium.

"Historically this competition hasn’t drawn in the biggest crowds, so that makes coming down even more special, and for those younger players who are involved, it would be great for them to be playing in front of a crowd, at our fabulous stadium, and in the first team. They will know how much it means to put that blue quartered Wycombe shirt on and represent this fantastic football club."
