Blues can't afford to lose to the Iron


Wycombe Wanderers travel to Scunthorpe United on Saturday for their 34th league game of the season.

The league table currently shows Wycombe in 22nd place with 29 points from 33 games and Scunthorpe in 21st spot with 32 points from 32 games.

Scunthorpe Home Record..W 3 - D 7 - L 7 - Pts 16...Ppg 0.94 (Rank-24)

Wycombe Away Record.....W 2 - D 3 - L 11 - Pts 9...Ppg 0.56 (Rank-24)


Having recently lost a vital six-pointer against Yeovil and a crucial must-win basement battle with Walsall, a revitalised Wycombe face a vital, crucial, must-win, do or die, six-pointy crunch match with fellow relegation strugglers Scunthorpe.

It doesn't get much bigger than that.
