For the final time this season, Wycombe Wanderers will host a match at Adams Park in what has been an eventful campaign.

Shock results (both good and bad at home), the sale of the club’s best player, the sudden retirement of a fan favourite, and the departure of a long-serving manager to name a few, has made it a jam-packed year.

But before everyone can reflect on the season that has been, Cheltenham Town are the final team to stand in Wanderers’ way in Buckinghamshire.

And it’s fair to say that goals are not shy in this fixture.

Here is everything you need to know for Wycombe Wanderers vs Cheltenham Town.

Background and Cheltenham’s current form

This is the Robins’ second season back in League One following their promotion to the third tier in 2021 after a 12-year absence.

Currently 17th, they could finish as high as 13th if they win their next to games.

And even though they have achieved their aim which was to avoid relegation back down into League Two, the club will no doubt aim to push for a top-half finish next season, in what has been a mixed term.

Wins against Wycombe back in November, and promotion-pushing Bolton Wanderers are well noted, along with a home draw against Championship-bound Ipswich Town.

But poor runs, such as losing seven in eight, along with picking up one win in 10, have made this campaign a long slog.

As it stands, they have only won one of their last seven and were thumped 4-0 against Oxford United on Tuesday night, and there are rumours circulating that some of their best players could depart in the summer.

The main one is Alfie May, who has scored five goals in his last two against the Chairboys.

Four of those strikes came in that incredible 5-5 draw last season at Adams Park last season.

Background and Wanderers’ current form

The 2-0 loss against Lincoln City last week ended any hopes of another play-off campaign, and it’s fair to say that the mood around the club is somewhat flat.

However, despite the disappointment, there is still a chance that Wycombe can finish in eighth or ninth place in the third tier of English football, which in itself, is an incredible achievement.

Speaking to the Free Press, manager Matt Bloomfield has confirmed that Jack Grimmer will be absent and that a couple of the fringe players could feature.

In terms of form, Wycombe have won three of the four fixtures immediately after a defeat since the 39-year-old took over.

Additionally, the Chairboys have not lost at home to Cheltenham in nearly a decade (November 2013), and have only been defeated 11 times by the Robins in over 40 matches.
