At Highbury, Fleetwood will almost certainly make the running, which should suit Wycombe down to the ground. Defensively, the Chairboys have done a good job of staying in games during the early weeks, while theyve also looked effective on the break, what with the pace of both Paul Smyth and Fred Onyedinma. On this basis, a small punt on Wycombe +0.25 Asian Handicap stands out as a viable option.
Its still very early days, and its important not to draw conclusions after each side has played just once at home and once away, though based on the efforts of both during the early weeks, the visitors look slightly on the large side. Fleetwood have always looked like a decent side under Barton, and theyve certainly made a positive start to this campaign, but theres reason to believe that Wycombe can do well on Tuesday.

For the first time this term, they werent watertight at the back, but they still battled hard and showed that theyre unlikely to be easily bettered. Gareth Ainsworths men, whore now looking far less reliant on veteran striker Adebayo Akinfenwa, proved that theyre growing, both in terms of creativity and end-product on Saturday.
