Brentford v Wycombe Wanderers - Match Preview

Brentford decimated by international call-ups ahead of Wycombe tie

Brentford will be without nine players due to international duty as their season gets under way with a Carabao Cup first-round match against Wycombe.

Bees captain Pontus Jansson is with Sweden, Danish pair Henrik Dalsgaard and Christian Norgaard are also unavailable, as is Patrik Gunnarsson, who has linked up with Iceland.

Josh Dasilva is with England Under-21s while Turkey’s Halil Dervisoglu, France’s Bryan Mbeumo, Denmark’s Mads Bech and Finland’s Jaakko Oksanen have joined their countries’ respective age groups.

The squad is likely to be the same as the one that drew 2-2 in a pre-season friendly with Oxford earlier this week but goalkeeper David Raya could return after missing that game with an unspecified knock.

Wycombe are likely to be without Adebayo Akinfenwa for the trip to Griffin Park.

The veteran striker is working his way back to fitness after undergoing knee surgery in the close season and is set to be the Chairboys’ only injury-enforced absentee this weekend.

Defender Jason McCarthy signed for the newly-promoted Championship club for the fourth time in his career last week and could make his latest club debut.

Striker Uche Ikpeazu, who has signed from Hearts, Republic of Ireland winger Daryl Horgan, who joined from Hibernian, and former Hull defender Ryan Tafazolli are the others who could make their Wycombe bows on Sunday.

Brentford vs Wycombe Betting Tips

Following their play-off heartbreak, Brentford are set to welcome in the new season as they take on Wycombe Wanderers in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

After failing to get past the first-round last year, Brentford will certainly look to improve when they host Wycombe at their brand-new Community Stadium.

As things stand, the Bees are the favourites to win having been priced by the bookmakers at 4/9. Wycombe, on the other hand, are currently available at 9/2.

It’s been a long time since these two sides have gone head to head with the last competitive fixture taking place all they way back in 2012. On that occasion, Brentford walked away comfortable winners in a 5-2 mauling.

On paper, Brentford should have too much for Wanderers however, with Gareth Ainsworth’s men looking to kick on following their promotion to the Championship, they certainly are capable of posing a credible challenge.

Bearing this in mind, our recommendation is to back a win for the home side but only by a one goal margin. This bet is currently priced at 12/5 which is an offer that does provide decent value.

    Gareth Ainsworth ‘incredibly proud’ as Wycombe give Brentford Carabao Cup scare

    Brentford won 4-2 on penalties..

    Proud Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth hailed his side's strong statement of intent in their narrow Carabao Cup defeat at Brentford.

    He watched his newly-promoted outfit take last season's play-off finalists to penalties after a 1-1 draw, only to lose 4-2 in the shoot-out despite playing most of the second half with 10 men after Dominic Gape's sending off.

    But he said: "I'm unbelievably proud to take a fantastic club like Brentford all the way and deservedly so. There was some great endeavour, hard work and individual brilliance, especially when we were down to 10.

    "I was disappointed with their goal because I don't think it was a free kick. The sending off was harsh because Dominic went in for the ball, but overall I want to concentrate on a fabulous performance from a solid Wycombe outfit.

    "We might look out of place, but we will give everything. We don't want to be forgotten. We may be different in some aspects, but we will never ever stop trying and working hard for each other."

    Daryl Horgan summed up the Chairboys' fighting spirit, cancelling out Ethan Pinnock's opener, the first competitive goal at the Bees' new stadium.

    Ainsworth said: "Even with 10 we kept pushing and could have won it. That's great because all I want from us is to be a team you don't automatically think you'll take three points from.

    "We have some players still to come back into the team and I know Brentford do too. They are waiting on nine internationals… we don't have any yet."

    Bees head coach Thomas Frank said it was "an overall pleasing performance" and insisted his side will be "bang on it" for the start of the Championship season.

    "There won't be any allowances made for a new ground or crowd because this stadium has the same pitch measurement as other pitches," he said.

    "Today was like moving house when you have friends over for a barbecue and start making memories. Our first barbecue went well and hopefully one day, we will have a nice big party with our fans."

    The Dane also hailed Championship newcomers, adding: "They are going to create trouble for clubs in our division. It's impressive what Gareth has created and they are not easy to handle because the culture and work ethic he has created is amazing and the foundation of all good football teams.

    "They changed their formation and pressed us high which we weren't expecting, but their best moments came from our mistakes and we controlled the game for 75 minutes and got the job done."
