Wycombe were a penalty shootout from League One at the end of last season when they suffered the narrowest of defeats to Southend United in the play-off final at Wembley.

The Chairboys had finished fourth in League Two, a dramatic turnaround from the previous campaign which had seen them avoid relegation only on the final day.

This season their aim must have been to go one better than in 2014/15 but they saw their chances of claiming a play-off place in this campaign ended last weekend.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Manager"]Having played for the likes of Preston, Wimbledon and QPR during his playing days, Ainsworth took over managerial duties at Wycombe in 2011.

He guided the club to safety in his debut season and again in 2014, before taking his side to the play-off final in 2015.

He was named LMA Manager of the Year for his achievements last year, and has developed another strong squad this season.[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="One to Watch"]

Having made his first Premier League start for QPR at Liverpool in 2012, Harriman became one of Gareth Ainsworth's first loan signings as Wanderers manager, playing 20 times for the Chairboys the following season.

After loan spells at Gillingham and Luton, he returned to Adams Park and was meant to be there until January.

The versatile 23-year-old then saw that move made permanent and he's been a virtual ever present this season, scoring eight times[/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title="Form Guide"][vc_text_separator title="Stanley: DWDWW" color="juicy_pink"]The Reds are unbeaten in ten games and have won their last four away from the Wham Stadium.
