Wycombe Wanderers’ new left-back Jordan Obita has revealed ‘it is good to be back in the Championship’, following his move from Oxford United.

The 27-year-old joined the Chairboys on January 29 from the Yellows, after only playing 15 games for the League One outfit.

He had only been at the Kassam Stadium side since October.

Prior to his move to Oxfordshire in the autumn, Obita played in the Championship for Reading.

Speaking after his Wanderers debut in the 0-0 draw against Birmingham City on February 2, he said: “It is good to come here, back in the Championship and try and help this club up the table.

“I signed here for two-and-a-half-years [as I want] to be here for a while, do really well and that’s my objective.

“For Oxford, I was playing as a winger but I probably prefer playing at left-back or left-wing back, so it is good to be back in that position.

“It is good to be here.”

Wycombe’s new number 27 had a solid debut against the Blues, as he is currently deputising for the injured Joe Jacobson, following the Welshman's groin injury which was picked up in the FA Cup loss against Tottenham.

And with games coming in thick and fast against teams who are all trying to avoid relegation into League One, Obita hopes that Wycombe can get a few more points on the board.

Wycombe’s next five matches are against Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield Town, Derby County, and Millwall – teams who are all sitting precisely above the drop zone.

He continued: “There are so many games to go and if we go on a run, you never know what could happen.

“Obviously, we want to stay in this league but if not, then we push on for the season after to try and push back up again.

“We’re playing teams around us, so if you get a point or three points then that is massive.

“When you’re playing against teams near you, it is always quite a battle like it was against Birmingham, but we back ourselves to put up a fight.”

Wycombe's match against Forest on Saturday at Adams Park will kick-off at 3pm.
