Chairboys promoted to the Championship

Wanderers defeat Oxford 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.

13 July 2020

Anthony Stewart and Joe Jacobson were on target as Wycombe Wanderers earned promotion to the Championship with a 2-1 win over Oxford United at Wembley Stadium.

The Blues took an early lead when Stewart headed home Jacobson's inviting corner and could've taken a two-goal lead into the break, but Fred Onyedinma fired over.

Oxford levelled in fortuitous fashion when Mark Sykes' cross looped over Ryan Allsop and into the net, but Wanderers weren't to be denied their night of glory as Jacobson converted a penalty following a foul on Onyedinma to seal Wycombe's place in the Championship.
