The visit of Swansea City to Adams Park on Saturday gives Wycombe the perfect chance to show that lessons have been learned from their baptism of fire in the Championship.

The Welsh club – who were playing in the Premier League only two years ago – will provide the sternest test yet of Wycombe’s ability to hold their own in the second tier.

Swansea had seven consecutive campaigns in the top flight before relegation in the 2017-18 season, and last season they finished sixth in the Championship to qualify for the play-offs.

Their hopes of clinching a return to the Premier League were ended when they lost to Brentford in the semi-finals.

They are one of the biggest clubs in the division with a budget to match.

Swansea’s wage bill is reported to be over £60m-a-year and one player - Ghana international winger Andre Ayew – reputedly earns more in one week than Wycombe’s entire starting 11!

This is the world in which Wanderers now find themselves in, so it is no surprise that they are taking time to adapt. Three games in league and cup have yielded no wins, seven goals conceded and just one scored.

Last Saturday’s 5-0 defeat at Blackburn was the hardest to take, and Gareth Ainsworth and his players spent time this week dissecting what went wrong on a disastrous afternoon at Ewood Park.

They hope to put it right against a Swansea team who finished five places and seven points above Ainsworth’s hometown club in last season’s Championship league table.

The Wycombe boss told me: "We knew this division would be a big step up in terms of tactics and the technical abilities of the players we are up against, but it has also been more physical than we imagined.

"Blackburn were quick, sharp and strong.

"Their first touch and ball retention were excellent, and we expect Swansea to be the same on Saturday, possibly even better.

"Having said that, we contributed to our own downfall with a series of defensive errors and that is not like us.

"We are still working things out and we have to find ways to try and bridge the gap in quality."

Blues fans knew the step up in standard was always going to be tough for their team to handle, but they are anxious to see new faces added to the squad before the transfer deadline closes.

Ainsworth admitted: "We are still short in one or two areas.

"We have missed Bayo (Akinfenwa) up front, and Uche (Ikpeazu) picked up a couple of injuries because he has been out of action for so long.

"We are also hoping to strengthen in midfield.

"Losing Dominic Gape for three games after his red card at Brentford was a massive blow."

Swansea will be a huge test and there is extra pressure with the game being shown live on Sky Sports.

By five o’clock on Saturday, we will know a lot more about Wanderers' ability to survive in one of the most competitive leagues in Europe.
