Wembley stadium will play host to another play-off final this Monday night as Oxford United and Wycombe Wanderers battle for the right to play in the Championship next season.
Wycombe cruised to the final having beaten Fleetwood Town 6-3 on aggregate. The same cannot be said for Oxford who had to endure extra time and penalties in order to get the better of Portsmouth.

Here are some key stats to help you in your quest.
Who will win the game?
As with all finals, this is a tough question to answer. The bookmakers are similarly split although they do slightly favour Oxford predominantly because of their impressive form before the season’s suspension and Wycombe’s woeful away form. Wanderers have the 14th best away record in League One and come into this game having won two of their last nine games on the road.
Which team will get the first goal?
Oxford have failed to open the scoring in all of their last three games. Wycombe aren’t much better in this department having opened the scoring once in their last three games; this came during their 4-1 thrashing of Fleetwood.
Despite this, United have opened the scoring in three of their last five head to head encounters with Wycombe. Following history, you certainly wouldn’t put an early goal past them.
Which will be the highest scoring half?
Looking at the last three head to head games between the two clubs, we can see that most of the goals take place early on. In fact, five of the seven goals scored in those last three meetings were produced in the first 45 minutes of games. With that in mind, the first half will certainly be the one to keep a close eye on.
How many goals will Adebayo Akinfenwa score?
Arguably one of the biggest names - and factually the biggest player physically - on the pitch will be Wycombe’s Adebayo Akinfenwa. The striker is no stranger to play-off finals having previously scored in AFC Wimbledon’s 2016 League Two play-off final victory.
The player came off the bench in both legs of the recent semi-final against Fleetwood however, he was in strong form before the season’s suspension having scored three goals in five games; one of those as a substitute. Should he feature this Monday night, he’ll no doubt be the one to watch.
