A much-needed win in their last game against struggling Cheltenham Town has eased the pressure on Wycombe boss Matt Bloomfield, but Wanderers now face four successive games against promotion-chasing teams, starting with the visit of Peterborough United to Adams Park on Saturday, February 10.

Last week’s victory at Cheltenham was only the second time in the last eighteen league games that the Chairboys have collected all three points, and they remain uncomfortably close to the relegation zone.

They are fourteen points shy of the average total (48) needed to avoid the drop in League One, and they have the toughest run-in of all the teams around them with games against the current top eight clubs before the end of the season.

They are just four points above the relegation places and probably need to win at least four of their seventeen remaining league games to be safe.

Bloomfield’s men produced one of their best displays of the season when they travelled to Peterborough last October.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw, but even Posh manager Darren Ferguson admitted that Wanderers deserved to win.

Wycombe beat Peterborough home and away last season, scoring six goals in the process and conceding only one, and they have a superior head-to-head record against their rivals who have not won a league match at Adams Park for over twenty years.

Games between the clubs are often high-scoring affairs, and Posh are currently the top scorers in League One despite the absence of prolific striker Jonson Clarke-Harris who has been frozen out after turning down big-money moves to Coventry City and Charlton Athletic.

Ephron Mason-Clark - sold to Coventry last month but loaned back until the end of the season – is leading scorer with ten goals including the one he scored against Wanderers in October when he also netted an own goal.

Posh conceded two own goals and had a man sent off in their surprise defeat at Exeter City in midweek, but they remain fourth in the table just three points behind the automatic promotion places.
