Wycombe surprised everyone with promotion from league 1 last season when they were tipped for relegation. The circumstances that led to their promotion were seen as fortunate, as they finished outside the play offs and cruelly denied Peterborough a place having been placed above them on the controversial PPG.
Their hearts were broken late on at home to Rotherham which was dubbed as a “relegation 6 pointer” something you don’t often hear on the opening day. Last week they were really welcomed to the championship by a ruthless Rovers side in a 5-0 thumping with Adam Armstrong netting a hatrick.
Swansea have yet to concede a goal in their two opening games with a good 1-0 win at Preston on the opening day, and held to a 0-0 with a rejuvenated Birmingham side under Aitor Karanka. Steve Coopers side were the 7th best defence in the league last season, and he’s clearly aimed at keeping them as one of the best in the league managing to keep hold of highly rated Joe Rodon and bringing back Marc Guehi from Chelsea on another loan.
Cooper looks to have struggled to replace Rhian Brewsters goals and the creativity of Conor Gallagher, dominating the game against blues but not finding the key goal, but he has a good bunch of youngsters at his disposal and I am sure it won’t be long before they start being more clinical.
Wycombes front line lacks any championship quality and I find it highly unlikely they will break down the Swansea defence, Swansea need to start putting games to bed and being more clinical but I expect them to be able to find a breakthrough against this poor Wycombe side.
Swansea to win – 4/5 William Hill – 2 point win
