Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle meet for first time since pulsating Play-Off

11 September 2015

Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle face each other in Sky Bet League 2 on Saturday, in what will be the first meeting between the two clubs since their entertaining Play-Off semi-final last term.

Their first clash across those two ties came at Home Park, where Wycombe ran riot inside the first hour to register a 3-0 advantage. But Plymouth bit back late on, and scored twice through Zak Ansah and Jason Banton to give themselves a chance in the second leg.

That return match provided a similar tale, though, as Paul Hayes and Alfie Mawson put the Chairboys two-up after 35 minutes at Adams Park. Ryan Brunt got on the scoresheet to give Argyle late hope once more, but it was Gareth Ainsworth's side who prevailed 5-3 on aggregate to win their place in at the Wembley final.

The showpiece pendulum didn't swing the way of Wycombe, though, as they lost 7-6 on penalties to Southend United - but they have still gone unbeaten on regular League duty since April.

A successful run-in to reach the Play-Offs last May continued into the new campaign, and they sit second in the early standings as one of only three unbeaten sides in Sky Bet League 2. Just behind them are Plymouth, who have lost two of their opening six matches, but have won the other four.

The weekend match-up will be the 23rd clash between the two since they first crossed paths in 1994, and it's all to play for with both having triumphed eight times each.

Wycombe's aforementioned 2-1 Play-Off semi-final second-leg win was the first time in eight encounters that the home side has registered victory, and it's something that has not been achieved in League meetings between them since April 2004.
