Team news
To follow.

Man in the middle
Martin Coy takes charge of his second Chairboys fixture this season, having officiated in the 3-2 win at Crewe in January.

He’s shown 69 yellow and three red cards in 33 games in his maiden season as an EFL referee.

Post-match celebrations
Fans are urged to stay off the pitch to enable both sets of players to show their appreciation for the support they have received throughout the season.

Wanderers’ players will leave the field after the final whistle and return for the presentation of promotion medals and a silver salver from the EFL, in recognition of their achievements. They will then take part in a lap of honour around the pitch.

Due to the very limited availability of tickets, this fixture is now ALL-TICKET for Chairboys fans, which means there will be none available to beyond 12pm on Saturday.

The Origin Family Stand, terrace, Frank Adams Stand and Beechdean Stand are sold out, leaving only a few hundred for Chairboys fans in the Lords Builders Merchants Stand.

To book, go online to, or call 01494 441118 or visit the shop at Adams Park between 10am and 5pm on Thursday and Friday, and from 10am to 12pm on Saturday.

Pre-booked tickets can be collected from the shop until 5pm on Friday, or from Ticket Office 1 on the day of the game.
