Cheltenham Town manager Wade Elliott firmly believes that Wycombe Wanderers will ‘be in the play-offs’ despite the Chairboys’ inconsistent start to the season.

The Robins defeat Gareth Ainsworth’s men 1-0 on November 19 with Alfie May scoring the winner with a deflected effort on 25 minutes.

It was his fifth of the season and his fifth against Wanderers in just two games.

The result means Wycombe currently sit in 12th place with 25 points from 19 games played.

Speaking about the Adams Park team, Elliott, who played Premier League football with Burnley, told Gloucestershire Live: “I don't care how we win.

“When I did the press on Friday, I spoke about Wycombe's stats and that they are a really good side and I think they'll be in the play-offs.

“It's a massive win, brilliant performance.

“First half we made decent chances and openings.

“We get a little bit of quality from Alfie and I know it's deflected, but he's worked the opportunity really well.

“We prepped really well and knew what their threats were going to be.

"In the second half when we needed to be tough and resilient and dogged, we stood up and they stood up to the challenge really well.”

The victory was Cheltenham's first over Wanderers since 2013.
