Wycombe left-back Joe Jacobson believes the club can really cause an upset in their maiden season of second tier football.

The Welsh defender, who was named in the 2019/20 Team of the Year, is determined to shake off the ‘Little Wycombe’ tag, as Championship football is up next for the Chairboys.

Speaking ahead of the season opener against Rotherham United, the left-back enthused: “For the six years I’ve been here, we have always been ‘Little Wycombe’ and have always punched above our weight massively, so we don’t want to have that tag anymore.

“I’m sure many will still say we’re ‘Little Wycombe’ in the Championship, but as a club, we’re growing every day.

“We want to stay and compete at this level.

“We’ve had meetings, and we don’t want to set out our stall to finish fourth bottom and just survive.

"We want to make noise and show people what we’re all about and show that we can compete at this level and have a good season.

“For us, a good season wouldn’t just be surviving by the skin of our teeth, we want to have a decent year and compete.

“We’ve got players who are desperate to prove a point at this level, as some have missed out through being unlucky and some have had managers who don’t think their good enough.

“We've got a manager here who massively believes in all of us and we’re all ready to show him that we are good enough to compete and have a good season.

“We don’t want to be 'Little Wycombe', turning up to these places.

“We want to go there as Wycombe Wanderers in the Championship because we deserve to be there and I'm sure the gaffer will set us up to win every game possible - that won't be possible but that’s the mentality we have to have.”

Wycombe’s match against Rotherham will kick-off at 12.30pm at Adams Park.
