Wycombe Wanderers vs Preston
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Adams Park, High Wycombe.
After showing signs of life in early November, Wycombe Wanderers have returned to old habits and losing big majority of games in English Championship. Situation is far from being ideal, as squad sits in the last place on the table with 15 points. Not everything is lost though, as the escape above the red line is probably just two or three consecutive victories away.
Squad from Adams Park can leave their worries aside this weekend and enjoy in FA Cup action against Preston North End. The Lillywhites were super-successful in second part of December, having won three games in a row. Can they outplay the strugglers on Saturday? Bookies offer 2.06 odds on the away win at the moment.

Wycombe vs Preston Prediction
Wycombe were so close to claim big three points against Preston in early December. They had the lead thanks to the goals of McCleary and Kashket all until the 87th minute when McCarthy made fatal mistake and scored own goal. Can they be a bit luckier this time? Squad looked really good on the pitch against Cardiff City on 29th December, winning the match 2-1. However, the follow up duel versus Middlesbrough turned into a disaster, losing home ground 1-3.
Preston are still hoping to catch up with other playoff teams, and will most likely use mixed lineup for this encounter. Hosts were super-close to beat the Lillywhites in the first meeting. We believe they have solid chance to qualify for the 4th round.
