Wycombe face the biggest test of their season so far when they take on three of the top six teams in their division in the space of just seven days, beginning with the trip to Peterborough United on Saturday, October 21.

Following the clash with Darren Ferguson’s side, currently fourth in League One, Wanderers host sixth-placed Bolton Wanderers at Adams Park on Tuesday, October 24, before the short trip to local rivals Oxford United-second in the table before this weekend on Saturday, October 28.

It’s a trio of fixtures that will give an indication of Wycombe’s chances of challenging for a play-off place this season, and fortunately, Matt Bloomfield’s men are in good form.

They have won six of their last nine league games, the only defeats coming in tough away games at Charlton Athletic and Portsmouth, two matches they could easily have drawn.

The postponement of last week’s home game with Cheltenham Town due to international call-ups came at the perfect time.

It gave Bloomfield and his players a much-needed break after a punishing schedule of fixtures in August and September.

They will go to Peterborough refreshed and full of confidence after beating their opponents home and away last season, scoring six goals in the process.

Meetings between the clubs have a history of being high-scoring encounters, with the last eleven league games between them averaging nearly five goals-per-game.

Wanderers lead the way in head-to-head clashes since they first met in an FA Cup tie 50 years ago when the Chairboys were still a non-league club.

They lost that game, but have since beaten Peterborough 12 times, suffering only seven defeats.

Recent clashes have had an added edge to them after Wycombe beat Peterborough to a play-off place thanks to the points-per-game rule in the Covid-hit 2019-20 season.

It led to loud complaints of injustice from Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony, and disparaging remarks about Wycombe by local newspaper columnist Alan Swann.

If Bloomfield’s men can take something from their trip to London Road, it would set them up perfectly for their toughest week of the season.
