Cardiff City vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 24th April 2021, k.o. 3pm GMT
Caridff City Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

Adebayo Akinfenwa's last-gasp winner against Bristol City on Wednesday breathed new life into the Chairboys' survival hopes, and they return west again a week after a creditable display at Swansea, aiming for three points which could play its part in a grandstand finale to the Championship season.

Former Cardiff man Gareth Ainsworth knows his side need favours elsewhere, with Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham and Derby all required to drop sufficient points to enable the Blues to leapfrog them, but will take heart from having the third-best form in the division over the past five games, and having defeated the Bluebirds earlier in the season.

That 2-1 win in December came in the midst of a seven-game winless streak for now-departed City boss Neil Harris, and new manager Mick McCarthy made a flying start to life in the dugout, though they've now only won of their last nine outings.

It's a first ever visit to the Cardiff City Stadium for the Wanderers, and a return home for former Bluebird Joe Jacobson, but there's no time for sentiment - three points are a must.
