Wycombe Wanderers owner Rob Couhig has given the club’s fans an update on the current situation with Derby County.

The Rams, who will play League One football along with the Chairboys for the upcoming season, have been taken to the court by the Buckinghamshire outfit over an alleged loss of earnings due to County’s Financial Fair Play breaches.

Their wrongdoings led to the Midlands side having a 21-point deduction during the 2021/22 season, with Wanderers arguing that the withdrawal of points should have taken place a season before, when they were both competing in the Championship.

This was when Derby were found to have commit their transgressions with the club avoiding relegation to the third tier by one point on the final day of the campaign.

The Rams’ avoidance to League One in 2021 was at the expense of Wanderers, who were relegated instead.

The off-the-field issues with the former champions of England continued throughout the entire of the previous season, as many potential buyers have either pulled out of deals or have had their takeovers blocked by the Football League.

The two clubs will now play each other during the 2022/23 campaign for only the third and fourth time in their history.

Speaking to the club’s media, Mr Couhig, who has owned the Chairboys since the start of 2020, said: “They have a commitment to us in order to get out of administration and avoid any further point deductions.

"It will be interesting to see if these new fellers actually go forward and buy the club.

“I hate to say this, but I hope that they do it, but with Derby, I think it’s better to wait and see what actually happens and not get too wound up with the rumours, or even what they tell you what they are going to do.”

Wycombe’s decision to take Derby to court has split the opinions with many fans across the country, with some arguing that the Chairboys have a legitimate case, whilst others are suggesting that Wanderers’ court claim could potentially liquidate the Rams.

And at this present time, it is believed that property developer David Clowes has been named as the preferred bidder to take over the club.

When asked if there could be a form of compensation for Wanderers if Derby are officially bought, Mr Couhig said: “There could be something coming to Wycombe.”

He continued: “When somebody shows up with the money, I mean, they’ve had ‘five buyers’, so I am looking for someone to show up and complete the deal.”

Finally, despite the boardroom discussions, the owner has said that he is looking forward to facing the Rams at Adams Park.

Wycombe will travel to Derby in September whilst the reverse match will take place in February next year.

“All people are welcome to Adams Park.

“We are one of the most hospitable places around and they have great fans, and I have never had a problem with the Derby fans.

“However, I have had a significant problem with the folks who ran the club.”
