For the first time in English Football League history, Wycombe Wanderers will take on Oxford United in a competitive final.

The two teams in this Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire clash, otherwise known as the M40 derby, are 28 miles apart and have no love lost when it comes to winning.

Monday’s final will be the 29th time that these two sides will have faced each other, but only the fourth in cup competition.

In their previous 28 matches, both sides have won 10 games each with their being eight draws, and whenever Wycombe and Oxford face each other, there always seems to be drama.

The last time these two sides met was back on December 21 last year, when Oxford ran out 1-0 winners at the Kassam Stadium.

James Henry scored the winner for the Yellows but the Chairboys played most of the game with 10 players, after Adebayo Akinfenwa was sent-off just after 26 minutes.

In fact, Wycombe are winless in their last five games against Karl Robinson’s men, with their last victory against the yellows being in December 2015, when goals from Garry Thompson and Jason McCarthy, with the latter re-joining the club this season, scoring the goals.

But that season will be one for Oxford fans to remember fondly, as the 2015/16 season not only saw the club reach the 2016 Football League Trophy final at Wembley (where they lost 3-2 to Barnsley), but they were promoted to League One on the final day of that season.

And who did they beat to get promotion?

That’s right, Gareth Ainsworth’s men on May 7 2016, as the Chairboys went down 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium.

Only Joe Jacobson and Anthony Stewart remain from the squad that lost that day.

However, despite their recent troubles against Oxford, Wycombe have enjoyed many great performances against them.

Most notably during the 2014/15 season, when Wycombe won 2-1 at the Kassam Stadium, after coming from a goal behind.

After Danny Hylton gave the Ox’s lead, who were under the stewardship of Michael Appleton, two second-half goals from Paul Hayes and Peter Murphy gave Wanderers their second away at Oxford in two seasons.

The game will be remembered for some unsavoury scenes between the players midway through the first-half, and Danny Hylton smashing his 90th-minute penalty to try and rescue Oxford a point over the crossbar.

Let’s hope Wycombe can end their Oxford hoodoo on Monday night.
