Team News

Ten changes from the starting XI that had featured the previous Saturday in the 0-0 draw with Oxford United at Adams Park.
Sido Jombati the only Wycombe player keeping his place in the starting line-up.
Close season signing Darius Charles was given his Wycombe debut having recovered from injury.


Gareth Ainsworth

"A win is a win and I don't care how we do it. We dominated in the first half and we have to capitalise on those chances."

"We should have got two or three more goals in the first half and I expect if we had that many chances against a league side then we would be out of sight."

"Fulham made a couple of changes but it was a fantastic finish from Thompson which was a worldie strike and their shape caused us a few problems."

"We had the majority of chances towards the end of the game and it was great that Scotty [Kashket] got the winner."

"It was a fantastic spin and shot from Alex [Samuels]. People have seen more of him which is great, and I thought he had a great game. He is industrious and runs his socks off and wants to work for the team and I will have him all day."

"Darius [Charles'] communication skills are part of the reason as to why he is here as well as his fantastic defending. He is a threat in both boxes and he is going to be a big asset when he is fit again. He has played the last 10 years at a higher and that is why he is here"
