Can I watch Wycombe v Bristol City? Streaming and Round Three draw details and team news
Everything you need to know ahead of Bristol City’s Carabao Cup clash with Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park
When is Wycombe Wanderers v Bristol City?
As a result of City’s game against Cardiff being on Sunday, the Cup game was scheduled for Wednesday, August 24 at 7.45 pm.
This has allowed for a two-days break, which has given the team two training sessions after no days off were given.
Andy Davies has been appointed as the referee, he will be assisted by George Byrne and Greg Read with Leigh Doughty the fourth official.
Davies has taken charge of three games so far, issuing six yellow cards and one red, which was shown to Wigan’s Joe Bennett last Saturday. The last City game he officiated was the 2-1 defeat to Queens Park Rangers.
Is Wycombe Wanderers v Bristol City on TV?
Despite it being a midweek fixture and an EFL competition, there is no television broadcast of Wednesday’s fixture.
Tranmere Rovers v Newcastle United has been chosen as Sky Sports’ second round fixture with the third round draw to follow following the conclusion of that match.
Can I follow it another way?
BBC Radio Bristol will be airing live commentary of the game, with pre-game punditry, however the live broadcast will not be streaming online.
How did Bristol City’s opponent fare in their last game?
Managed by Gareth Ainsworth, the Chairboys defeated Barnsley, who had former Robins defender Robbie Cundy in their ranks, 3-0 at Oakwell on Saturday. Wycombe are 13th in the League One standings with two wins and three defeats in their opening five matches. David Wheeler and Anis Mehmeti are their top scorers with two goals apiece this season.
What team news is there?
Given the short turnaround from the game against Cardiff, no major changes are expected with Antoine Semenyo, Matty James and Tomas Kalas still sidelined by injury.
Mark Sykes should return from his ban after his dismissal against Luton Town but Kane Wilson may earn a start in his place as he bids for game time having not earned a start in the league as of yet.
Wilson, Chris Martin, Andy King and Timm Klose came on as substitutes in the last match whilst Cameron Pring and George Tanner were unused, so a slight rejig of the team could be made to keep players fresh for the Championship clash with Blackpool three days later.
Dylan Kadji did not feature for the Under-21’s against Peterborough United and could be in contention for an opportunity.
Experienced striker Sam Vokes has not appeared since the earlier part of this month and may not be fit enough to play against City. In the previous round, manager Ainsworth rotated his side from the one that played in the league fixture.
