Wycombe go into their next game at Cheltenham Town on Saturday, February 3 just four points above the relegation places after winning only one win of their last seventeen games in League One. 

The position would have been even worse had they not fought back to salvage a point in their last encounter, a 2-2 draw at home to bottom club Fleetwood Town. 

The Chairboys' first half performance was woeful and they were two goals down before the visitors had a man sent off, allowing Wanderers the opportunity to score twice themselves and avoid another damaging defeat.

The pressure is back on for the trip to Cheltenham, the first of two matches against the Gloucestershire club in less than a month.

Although Cheltenham won both fixtures last season, 1-0 at home and 3-0 at Adams Park - with Wycombe’s nemesis Alfie May scoring in both games - they were their only victories against Wanderers in the last eleven meetings.

The Chairboys record at Cheltenham’s colourfully named Completely-Suzuki Stadium is even more impressive. Their last six visits have produced four wins, a draw and just one defeat.

Games between the clubs have been high scoring affairs, especially at Adams Park where the last three encounters saw a staggering 25 goals scored, an average of more than eight per game!

The Robins spent most of the last decade in League Two and even dropped down to the National League in 2016, and they are struggling against the threat of relegation this season despite a recent upturn in form. 

Manager Darrell Clarke, who took charge in October after the sacking of Wade Elliott, has guided them to impressive home wins against promotion contenders Portsmouth and Oxford United.

Clarke was manager of Bristol Rovers when they were relegated to the National League on the final day of the 2013/14 season, Wycombe famously staying up at their expense after winning at Torquay United.

The Cheltenham squad includes former Chairboys favourite Curtis Thompson, a key figure in Wycombe’s promotion to the Championship four years ago.
