Wycombe face Coventry City today in their last game of the year, with Gareth Ainsworth's men losing the last two league matches after going the previous 12 unbeaten.

The Chairboys still remain on top of League One and are six points clear of second-place Ipswich Town who they face on New Year’s Day, but they know they can’t afford a third straight loss.

Their opponents for today’s match are only one point off the play-off places but have only won two of their last five league matches.

This might be a bit of a confidence boost for the Chairboys, but Coventry have got a superior win record over Wycombe.

This afternoon’s match will be the 10th time that Wycombe and Coventry will have played each other, with Coventry winning eight of those matches.

In fact, Wycombe’s only victory against Coventry was way back in October 1993, when the Chairboys defeated the Sky Blues 4-2 at Adams Park in a League Cup tie.

The last time these two sides met was on New Year's Day this year at Adams Park, when goals from Conor Chaplin and Jonson Clarke-Harris gave the Sky Blues all three points.

Wycombe have also drawn a blank in their last three games against today's opponents. 

A victory is much needed for Gareth Ainsworth’s men, as it will be the perfect tonic after two bitter defeats, and it will give the players a much-needed confidence boost for when they face Ipswich Town on New Year’s Day.
