The Club announced on Tuesday what appears to be a controversial decision to change to the kick-off time for the Boxing Day meeting with Newport County at Adams Park. Kick-off will now be 12.30pm instead of the previously publicised and conventional 3pm. A statement on the official website read "After careful consideration, the club has decided that a number of factors are likely to attract a larger attendance at this time, including avoiding a clash with the televised Premier League fixture that afternoon." Current schedules show that BT Sport are broadcasting live coverage of the West Ham v Arsenal (3pm KO). However, Sky are showing Hull City v Manchester United (12.45pm KO) and Manchester City v Liverpool (5.30pm KO). The Wanderers previous Boxing Day home game was in 2011 versus Exeter City and the 3pm KO attracted an attendance of 4,904.
Matt Bloomfield BLOOMS CLOSES IN ON 300
(Monday 28th October 2013)
Matt Bloomfield sending off versus Bury came on his 298th First Team appearance for the Wanderers - not the 299th as reported by many other media outlets. The confusion is believed to have come about due to including the abandoned game at Portsmouth. It was the first red card of Bloomfield's pro career and his three match ban will mean his landmark 300th appearance for Wycombe will now have to wait until after the home game at Cheltenham Town on Saturday 16th November.

Matchday WYCOMBE 1 BURY 2
(Saturday 26th October 2013)
Matt Bloomfield was sent off for the Wanderers as his side fell to a 2-1 home defeat to lowly Bury at Adams Park. It came after an unchanged Wycombe side had led thanks to a 15th minute strike from Anthony Stewart. Further chances fell Wycombe's way to extend the lead but a poor defensive showing in the second half saw the visitors equalise on 69 minutes through Tom Soares. Six minutes later, a hot headed lunge in slippery conditions by Bloomfield on Shaun Beeley saw referee Darren Deadman instantly show his red card. Wanderers nightmare day was compounded on 88 minutes when William Edjenguele headed in Chris Sedgwick's corner. Wycombe are now 12th in the table.

Fielding an unchanged starting XI, Billy Knott fired Wanderers into the lead after 30 minutes with a shot that went in off the underside of the crossbar following a corner.

Charles Dunne was red carded as Wanderers' hit and miss season continued on Saturday with a 2-1 home defeat to Burton Albion. Dunne had returned to the side following a three match ban for his sending-off at Oxford but saw red again for a second bookable offence two minutes into the second half. By that time Wycombe were already a goal behind from Billy Kee's strike from the edge of the box on 26 minutes. The visitors were then gifted another goal on 52 minutes when a clumsy challenge by Gary Doherty on Kee saw a penalty awarded and the same player convert. Matt McClure struck a 90th minute goal to set-up an unlikely and ultimately unsuccessful comeback by Wycombe who are now 13th in the table.
