Betting Tip: Wycombe @ 18/11 with bet365

Wycombe Wanderers have spent all season being fantastic on the road and they can produce another big performance at Wembley to book their place in League One next season.

The Chairboys were not among the favourites to land promotion at the start of the season, although Gareth Ainsworth’s team have been in the top seven all season and have occupied the automatic promotion spots at various stages.

Two high-scoring matches against Plymouth saw Wycombe set up a play-off final showdown against Southend United, with Wanderers beating the Pilgrims home and away. They’re now a match away from League One.

Their attacking mentality should favour Wanderers who face a Southend side who are much more adept at shutting up shop and winning games by a 1-0 scoreline.

Phil Brown’s side made heavy weather of beating Stevenage in the play-off semis, with the second leg going to extra-time before United scored twice to reach Wembley.

Wycombe have the better of the head-to-head record this season, trouncing Southend 4-1 at Adams Park after enjoying a 2-2 draw at Roots Hall, with Wanderers fancied to get the better of the Wembley clash.

The team’s attacking style should be well-suited to a nervous occasion which is better than sitting back and aiming to keep a clean sheet.
