Barnsley manager Michael Duff has insisted the ‘little Wycombe’ tag that has been coined towards the Chairboys is a thing of the past.

He will be taking his Tykes to Adams Park this weekend in what will be the first managerial meeting between himself and Matt Bloomfield, as both teams are aiming to finish in the play-off places.

Wycombe are seventh on 60 points whilst Barnsley are fourth on 66 points.

However, the Yorkshire outfit have got two games in hand over the Chairboys.

“They've done well in this division in the last few years.

They're not 'little Wycombe'.
