Wycombe’s fading hopes of grabbing a playoff place were kept alive by a gritty win at Cambridge United in midweek, the perfect response to last Saturday’s demoralising defeat at Morecambe.

Next up is a must-win game against Lincoln City at Adams Park on Saturday, April 22, but if Wanderers do miss out on a place in the top six, they are still on course for one of their highest-ever finishes in the EFL.

Apparently, that is not good enough for some of their more critical fans on social media who forget that there are 16 clubs in League One and another 24 in League Two who would happily swap places with the Chairboys right now.

Three playoff finals in the last eight seasons is a remarkable achievement for a club of Wycombe’s size, and it should not be forgotten that they have spent more time in League Two than in League One in the last decade.

Wycombe have had the better of previous encounters with Lincoln since the clubs first met over 30 years ago in the Chairboys’ first season in the Football League. 
They have won eleven games against the Imps, drawn five, and lost just six.

Wanderers did the double over the Lincolnshire side last season winning both games 1-0. 

Sam Vokes scored the only goal at Adams Park while Chris Forino grabbed the winner at Sincil Bank.

Earlier this season, Wanderers drew 0-0 at Lincoln where the home side have only lost one game in the entire campaign, and they have been in good form on-the-road in recent weeks drawing at Sheffield Wednesday and winning at Plymouth Argyle.

They have not tasted victory at Wycombe since 2006 with their last six visits to Adams Park ending in four defeats and two draws.

Another home win on Saturday would keep Matt Bloomfield’s men in contention, then they need maximum points from their remaining games against Cheltenham Town and Portsmouth and must hope that their rivals for a playoff place slip up.

It is a lot to hope for, but not impossible.
