Wycombe Wanderers fans find themselves reeling from this season’s latest hard luck story after a narrow defeat on Tuesday.

However, the signs are there to suggest a run of wins could be on the horizon after an impressive performance against Derby was unrewarded following Daryl Horgan’s disallowed goal and a late winner for the second-best Rams.

It’s an all too familiar feeling that has led to the Chairboys sitting nine points adrift at the bottom of the Championship.

There is plenty to be positive about, though, after the incredible comeback win at Huddersfield was followed by another excellent performance against one of the division’s most-established clubs.

Gareth Ainsworth seems to have found an attacking set-up that gets the most out of his significant amounts of talent in that area of the pitch.

It has been said many times that the current squad is the best in Wanderers’ history, and the last week has shown that.

Creative midfielder Anis Mehmeti is getting a run of games to continue his incredible rise after playing for Woodford Town a year ago, who are at the same level of the pyramid as Holmer Green, for some context.

Mehmeti benefits off the hold-up play of target man Uche Ikpeazu, who has recovered from a frustrating start to the campaign to become arguably Wycombe’s key player and should now finish the season as the club’s top scorer.

Added to that are the likes of Daryl Horgan and Garath McCleary, both of whom have been unlucky not to get on the scoresheet more often, so there are exciting times ahead for Wanderers fans despite the league position.

That’s just a select few who have impressed recently, and when you think that none of those were at Adams Park twelve months ago, it shows something is building at the club.

Recent displays should give the team confidence ahead of Saturday’s trip to Millwall, and despite improved form for the Lions of late, Wanderers have a good record at The New Den.

They won 2-1 in south London in the FA Cup in 2015 to set up the famous Aston Villa tie and also progressed in the EFL Trophy en route to the semi-finals a year later.

Dom Gape may be in line for a full return, although after praising his team post-match in midweek, Gareth Ainsworth could stick with the same eleven that played against Derby.

The strength of the bench at the moment adds further to that list, which should help in the coming weeks with the relentless fixture list continuing.
