With minds and bodies refreshed after the two-week international break, Wycombe hope to get their season up and running when they host Millwall tomorrow, the first of a daunting spell of five games in 14 days.

Millwall finished just two points outside the Championship play-off places last season and have lost only a handful of games since appointing Gary Rowett as manager 12 months ago.

They will doubtless be favourites to beat a Wycombe team desperate to get off the mark after four successive defeats, with a worrying goals tally of ten conceded and none scored.

Some of the players who helped Wanderers win promotion from League One last season have quickly adapted to life in the Championship, but others are still getting to grips with the higher standards.

After his team’s disappointing start, Gareth Ainsworth pledged to strengthen the squad before the transfer window closed. He brought in loan signing Josh Knight from Leicester City, with further additions rumoured to be in the pipeline before deadline on October 16.

Seven players have now been recruited for the first team, plus a further five for the newly formed ‘B’ team.

With a dozen new arrivals at Adams Park since Wanderers won the League One play-off final, no one can accuse owner Rob Couhig of failing to back the manager.

The American, who gained control of the club in February, has loosened the purse strings despite stating that his aim is to make Wanderers financially sustainable.

The new players will need to hit the ground running with so many challenging games coming up in the remaining weeks of October.

After tomorrow’s meeting with Millwall, Wanderers face another tough game on Tuesday night when they make the short trip to Reading, who won their first four league games and currently sit second in the table, equal on points with leaders Bristol City.

Next up is a visit to Norwich, who a year ago this week were hosting Manchester United in a Premier League fixture, and that is followed by a home game against Watford, another club playing in the top flight only last season.

Wanderers complete the month against Sheffield Wednesday, the only team below them in the table having started the season with a 12-point deduction for breaking the EFL’s financial rules.

In such an unforgiving division, this is a set of fixtures that will test Wanderers to the limit and go a long way to proving if they have what it takes to survive in the Championship.
