Match Preview: Wycombe Wanderers (H)

23 February 2024

Stevenage return to The Lamex Stadium in the hopes of a big three points against Wycombe Wanderers…

Boro will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday, to ensure that they remain in and around the race for play-offs. The side currently sit three points outside the play-off places, having played two less games than Oxford United in fifth place.

Last weekend, Steve Evans’ side were extremely unfortunate not to pick up at least a point away to Derby County, as the Rams scored the game’s only goal in the 90th minute to take home all three points. It was a strong performance from a Boro perspective as they had worked incredibly hard all afternoon, but one late Derby chance made the difference.

Stevenage are on a rare run of four winless games, so will be very hungry to get back on track against Wycombe this Saturday.

The Opposition 

Wycombe Wanderers have earned a mixed bag of results this season as they sit 15th in League One, having picked up 38 points from 32 games. Of those 32 games, just nine have been wins, with 11 being draws and 12 losses.

Away from league football though, they have found great success in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy this season, and on Tuesday they won their semi-final tie against Bradford City to set up a Wembley Stadium final with Peterborough United. It was Matt Butcher’s 91st minute goal that sent Wycombe into the final on Tuesday.

Their last league game ended in a 0-0 draw at home to promotion hopefuls Oxford United last Saturday, after losing 2-1 away to Bolton Wanderers the Tuesday prior. Two weeks ago, Wycombe earned one of their best results of the season, beating Peterborough United 5-2 at Adams Park.

The Manager

Matt Bloomfield has been Manager of Wycombe since his appointment back in February of last year. The 40-year-old is regarded as a Wycombe Wanderers legend, having played over 550 games for the Chairboys, scoring 43 goals from midfield.


Darren Drysdale has been appointed Match Referee for Saturday’s game, with Anthony Da Costa and Jack Forder as his Assistants, and Ryan Whitaker as Fourth Official. Drysdale has dished out 92 yellow cards and two reds in 24 games so far this season.
