Blues visit Boro as the battle hots up


Currently on a run of five games without defeat, Wycombe Wanderers travel to Stevenage on Saturday for their 40th league game of the season.


The league table currently shows Wycombe in 21st place with 40 points from 39 games. Boro are 7th with 58 points from 38 games.

Boro's Home Record........W 7 - D 8 - L 3....Pts 29...Ppg 1.61 (Rank-9)

Wycombe Away Record...W 4 - D 3 - L 12...Pts 15...Ppg 0.79 (Rank-21)


Both these clubs were promoted last season.

Wycombe went up automatically after finishing third with 80 points while Boro won the play-offs after finishing in 6th place with 69 points.

This season it's a different matter and the Chairboys are battling relegation while Boro are challenging for the play-offs yet again.

The main reason appears to be their respective defensive capabilities.

Both sides have scored 65 goals in all competitions this season.

The difference is, Wycombe have conceded 85 goals and Boro only 45.

Boro have also kept 17 clean sheets to the Chairboys' 4.

The Man In The Middle

Saturday's referee is James Linington from the Isle of Wight who was promoted to the National List of Referees in 2008. Last season he took charge of Wycombe's 2-0 win at Gillingham and their controversial 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury Town. Earlier this season he refereed the 1-0 home win over Sheffield United. During the current campaign he's issued 7 red and 99 yellow cards in 31 games.
