Preview - The battle continues for Wycombe


Wycombe Wanderers travel to the north of Buckinghamshire on Saturday for their 43rd league game of the season.


The League table currently shows Wycombe in 23rd place with 38 points from 42 games, while their opponents occupy 10th spot with 59 points from 42 games.

Franchise Home Record.............Won 10...Drawn 4...Lost 7.
Wycombe Away Record.............Won 3.....Drawn 8...Lost 10.



Following back-to-back wins over Hartlepool and Tranmere, it's a resurgent Wycombe Wanderers side that travels to Bletchley on Saturday with renewed hope of avoiding the drop.

The Chairboys' new-found grit and determination has seen them edge closer to safety, but with only four games remaining and a six-point gap still to be bridged, it's important that the winning streak continues.

Even the battle-scarred Blues' fans who had written-off their team's survival chances following an abysmal Easter period are now beginning to see a faint glimmer of hope, and why not?

With their makeshift defence having kept two clean-sheets in a row, their midfield energised by the fresh legs of Montrose and Bloomfield and their attacking threat boosted by the emergence of an in-form Alex Revell, Wycombe have nothing to fear on Saturday and could close the gap to just three points if Gillingham lose to promotion-chasing Leeds.

Franchise may be 10th in the table but their recent form is poor. They haven't managed a single win in their last seven games and have scored only once in their last four outings.

The Man In The Middle

Prediction

Franchise 1 Wycombe 2 - The Chairboys to continue their winning streak.
