The EFL League One play-offs begin on Thursday when Wycombe Wanderers and MK Dons meet at Adams Park. Wycombe are looking for an instant return to the EFL Championship, and Gareth Ainsworth’s men are the bookies’ favourites in this first leg. However, Liam Manning’s Dons finished three places and six points ahead of the home team in the regular League One season. This two-legged play-off semi-final could go either way. Take a look at the latest odds and tips.

Wycombe Wanderers Preview – Can the Chairboys make the most of home advantage?

After dropping out of the Championship having spent just one season in the second tier, promotion was always Wycombe Wanderers’ ultimate ambition this term. They finished the regular season in sixth position, collecting 83 points from 46 games. Overall, the Chairboys won 23, drew 14 and lost nine.

Gareth Ainsworth’s boys went on an incredible unbeaten run to sneak into the play-offs. After back-to-back defeats to Wigan Athletic and Accrington Stanley at the end of February, Wycombe went on to win eight and draw four of the following 12.

Our betting prediction:
Wycombe to score in both halves

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1512 GMT, Wednesday 4 May)

Wycombe will be looking to take a lead to Stadium MK for Sunday’s second leg. They have won the last four at Adams Park, and the home victory on Thursday is priced at 6/4.

MK Dons Preview – Can the Dons return home with a positive result?

Liam Manning’s MK Dons missed out on automatic promotion by just one point. Wigan won the league with 92 points, and Rotherham United took second with 90 points to their name. The Dons won 26, drew 11 and lost nine, amassing 89 points from 46 fixtures.

MK Dons will be rueing their poor run of form in April, which saw them collect just one point from a possible nine. Manning’s side ended their campaign with wins over Morecambe and Plymouth Argyle, but they were pipped to the post by Rotherham, who won 2-0 at Gillingham on the final day.
