FanZoner Luke Harris is still firmly behind Wycombe Wanderers in their battle to beat the drop from League One.
Chairboys must stay positive
It was only a month ago that the great escape looked almost definite, the quadruple signing of: Paul Hayes, Gary Doherty, Craig Eastmond & Chris Hackett added the extra bit of quality we had been missing. Their arrival sparked an upturn in form and whilst we still had Paul Hayes before he was recalled by Charlton, the Blues recorded 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat - scoring 17 goals in the process.
However since the departure of Paul Hayes, the Chairboys have failed to win. Notching four draws and a heavy defeat at the hands of relegation-threatened Chesterfield. Whether the slump in form is down to this or Wycombe's lack of consistency - is anyone's guess! Although compared to the rest of the season, those results don't look too shabby! But it now leaves us in the situation where anything less than 7 points from the next three games and disappointment is on the horizon.
Looking at the final three games, Wycombe must have one of the hardest run ins compared to most teams in League One - Charlton Athletic (A), Notts County (H) and Sheffield Wednesday (A). However Wycombe being Wycombe, there is a good chance we will shock everyone and get a couple of decent results, if not three.
Looking at the table we are only three points off free-falling Leyton Orient and could easily get ourselves to safety with the right results; but Orient will still fancy securing their own League One status- with a much easier run-in.
Having a striker like Stuart Beavon in our side won't harm our chances and I'm sure he will be quietly confident his goals can help us stay up. The only thing us Wycombe fans can do is stay positive and get behind our manager Gary Waddock and the players right through till 5pm on Saturday 5th May.
There were always going to be twists and turns, and whilst the results against Chesterfield and Oldham weren't what we really needed, safety isn't impossible and I have every faith the players will make it possible.
