Wanderers’ last meeting with Oxford United was arguably the greatest day in the club’s history, as they secured promotion to the Championship via the Wembley play-off final.

It was a travesty that fans of both clubs weren’t able to witness it, but the return of spectators in full this season has been fantastic.

With this M40 clash as close as the Chairboys have to a ‘derby’, the away end will be near-sold out to see two sides separated by just one goal in the league table.

The last time Wycombe played at The Kassam Stadium, more than 10,000 were in attendance, and a repeat of that crowd would provide a stark contrast from the 2-1 Wanderers victory in the capital 14 months ago.

Some Chairboys fans see this as a huge rivalry, and some see it as just another game, whereas the vast majority of Oxford fans believe it’s the latter, and understandably so.

The rivalry the U’s have with Swindon Town is one of the fiercer in English football, and despite Oxford being marginally closer to High Wycombe than it is to Swindon, that derby is one that has more history than Wycombe v Oxford will ever have.

While Oxford were in the top flight and winning major silverware in the 1980s, Wycombe were still in non-league, but it only took ten years from that point for the first meeting between the clubs.

They have met fairly regularly since then, but the point still stands that it’s a game that means much more to Wanderers supporters than United followers.

Is it a derby?

As mentioned, there will be more than 1600 travelling fans that make the short trip into Oxfordshire.

With the nature of a club like Wycombe where there are some fans that prefer to stand and sing and some that prefer to sit, a packed-out away end can always cause some problems.

The club did allocate a ‘singing section’ for this game, but it appears that it sold out before tickets went on general sale, so there’ll be plenty of fans wanting to stand that don’t have a ticket for that section.

It’s caused problems at the Kassam before, and it may do so again on Saturday, but hopefully all of the 10,000 or so punters at the ground can enjoy what should be a pulsating game between two promotion contenders.
