In the final of the EFL Trophy this season, Peterborough will meet with Wycombe at Wembley. Both of the teams had a long way to go to this finale and will show their best games amid the decisive stages of the season in League One, where both Peterborough and Wycombe have unresolved tasks. In the rich history of head to head clashes, Wycombe was more successful recently, not losing for 5 consecutive matches, with the latest win in February (5-2). 

Peterborough United vs Wycombe Wanderers Preview 

Peterborough United Preview

Peterborough this season again attempts to promote to the Championship, currently placed fourth in the tables. The chances of direct promotion are extremely low, given the gap of 8 points from the second Derby, thus, the team will most likely participate in the playoffs, where it lost in a penalty shootout last season. Within the EFL Trophy, Peterborough passed through various opponents, firstly winning the group stage and later defeating Crawley (2-1), Wimbledon (3-1) and Blackpool (3-0). It is worth noting that Blackpool, before the match with Peterborough in semi finals, won over Bolton, the triumphant of the previous EFL Trophy. 

Wycombe Wanderers Preview 

Wycombe is most likely to stay in the League One for the next season, being stuck in the middle of table at 13th place. The team, thus, is fully concentrated on winning the cup, with this being its first appearance in the finale. Given that it is the first relative success for the team since the end of the last century, the motivation for the players to lift the first cup trophy since 1993 FA Trophy is exorbitant. Moreover, Wycombe has shown decent performances lately, with 4 wins, 2 loses and 1 draw during the last 7 games. Had the team shown such results more consistently this season, it would have been probably fighting for the playoffs alongside Peterborough. Before joining Peterborough in the final, Wycombe passed through under-21 teams of Fulham, West Ham and Brighton, and won over Bradford in the semifinals.
