League Table

The nail-biting victory over Walsall was the first for Wanderers over the Saddlers since October 2000 (ten games) and took Gareth Ainsworth's side to the 50 point
mark for the season - four points clear of the relegation zone with two games remaining (Wimbledon away and Fleetwood at home).
With so many teams in the relegation zone playing each other and Wanderers' goal difference superior to the chasing sides, a single point from the remaining two
games would most likely see Wycombe mathematically safe.
However, eyes will also be on the two 'League One' games on Tuesday (23rd April 2019), when Accrington travel to Doncaster and Wimbledon travel to Luton. in order to make the relegation picture clearer.
