Oxford and Wycombe through to final

Well we had the 2nd legs of the League One Playoffs yesterday. Oxford and Portsmouth, and Wycombe and Fleetwood squared off. The prize of a final at Wembley awaited.

Portsmouth and Oxford were all square at 1-1, from the first leg. As for the other match Wycombe had a 4-1 win, in the first leg. After last week’s League Two second leg’s, it showed that you never know in these matches.

Pens settle it for Oxford

Well there was just no separating Oxford and Portsmouth. Again, like in the first leg, a 1-1 draw was the outcome. This time over 120 minutes, instead of 90.

It was a Portsmouth player, that scored both goals, in the first half. Marcus Harness put Portsmouth ahead, but in first half injury time Ellis Harrison put the ball, into his own net.

It came down to penalties, both teams scored their first 3 pens. Portsmouth’s Cameron McGeehan then stepped up and missed. Oxford scored there next 2 penalties, booking a place at Wembley.

Wanderers ease to Wembley

Well in the other Semi final, it didn’t have the same Drama. As I stated Wycombe already had a 4-1 lead in the tie. The game finished 2-2, giving Wycombe a 6-3 aggregate win.

Fleetwood took the lead, through Danny Andrew. Only for Onyedinma to level it in the 47th minute. Fleetwood won a penalty, in which Welshman Ched Evans dispatched, but it wasn’t enough.

Onyedinma scored again in the 94th minute to level the game. Wycombe march on to Wembley, in which the winner gets a spot in next season’s Championship.

Wanderers a step away

And finally…

The Playoff final will take place, on Monday 13th July at Wembley. Both teams should be confident now, after two completely different routes. Its is impressive that both have the chance, to compete in the Championship next season.

Oxford or Wycombe?
