Wycombe Wanderers captain Joe Jacobson believes that his side’s 2-0 advantage over MK in the play-off semi-finals going into the second leg is a ‘dangerous lead’ to have.

The Chairboys will travel to Stadium: MK on May 8, three days after goals from Ryan Tafazolli and Sam Vokes gave Gareth Ainsworth’s men a two-goal cushion against their Buckinghamshire rivals.

However, the Welshman has insisted that he and the club will not take anything for granted when the visit north Buckinghamshire on Sunday.

He said: “It’s a dangerous lead to have but you’d rather have a two-goal advantage than being behind.

“We all know that football can change really quickly as it just takes a second to score a goal, so they’ll be plenty of time to score two, three or even four goals as they’ve done that in the past.

“It is nice to have the lead, but, we’ve got a lot of work to do.

“They are a very good team and I wouldn’t say we were lucky, but it took us a little while to get into the game, but after that I thought the game plan worked really well and in the end, we deserved the win.”

Forest gained a 2-0 lead from the first semi-final match, but amazingly lost 5-2 in the second, falling to a 5-4 aggregate defeat.

Yeovil would go onto play Blackpool in that year’s final, which they lost 2-0 at Wembley Stadium.
