League Two's, Wycombe Wanderers are preparing for a Carling Cup

Williamson...At centre-back for big semi clash
Semi-final clash with Premiership Champions Chelsea tonight at Adams Park.

The Chairboy's welcome back Mike Williamson for tonight's contest. He is expected to slide straight back in the centre of defence alongside Will Antwi.

Sergio Torres is set to start as Stefan Oakes is out with flu.

The Blue's are without Ricardo Carvalho and Didier Drogba because of suspension. But as with all top club's they have the luxury of being able to bring in pure class such as, Andriy Shevchenko to cover. With John Terry out as well, Paulo Ferreira and Michael Essien could be set to pair up at centre back.

Baptista...'The Beast' humiliates Liverpool
In the competition's other semi-final, Arsenal will take on North London rivals Tottenham, after winning their quarter final game last night.

The Gunners smashed Liverpool 6-3 at Anfield, with Julio Baptista contributing with four wonderful goals. Aliadiere and Song got the others as Arsenal completed two wins in a week over Rafa Benitez's side.

A first half goal from Robbie Fowler levelled the game but the Red's still trailed 4-1 at half-time, as the player's left the field to the sounds of ‘boo's' from the ever faithful Kop end.

Skipper Steve Gerard and Craig Bellamy got their second half goals, but this was not enough to deny what was ultimately a humiliating night for Liverpool Football Club.

The Scouser's have only the Champions League to play for if they want more silverware, but with holders Barcelona waiting for them in the next round, many hardcore fans have already called Benitez's head.
