Wanderers continued their mean defensive streak with a 0-0 draw at Notts County on Easter Monday but it's the lack of goal that could cost Gareth Ainsworth's a play-off spot. With 34 goals against, Wycombe have the best defensive record in League Two but with just 41 goals in the goals for column, only four teams have scored fewer. Wanderers remain in 7th spot in the table and their destiny remains very much in their own hands, starting with a home game with Wimbledon on Saturday (2nd April).

Michael Harriman's cross/shot on 68 minutes against Mansfield Town was enough for Wanderers to record their fourth successive 1-0 home victory and creep back into play-off contention. It wasn't pretty at times but against a side that had no answer for Wycombe's resolute defence, it was a deserved three points and the winning margin could well have been higher. It's now onto struggling Notts County on Easter Monday in an effort to consolidate a play-off place.

Wanderers confirmed on Wednesday the loan signing of 20 year old Aston Villa striker Jerell Sellars. It will be the first loan of his career having been a regularl scorer for the Villa U21 side during the 2015/16 campaign. Sellars joined Villa from Lincoln City in the summer of 2012 following a successful trial period. Although not having made any competitive First Team appearances for Villa, he did score in a pre-season friendly at Swindon in July 2015 and scored the winner for the U21 side in a 1-0 victory over Arsenal the week before he teamed up with Gareth Ainsworth's side. He has been allocated the No.26 in the Wanderers squad and the loan has been agreed until the end of the season. Sellars arrival could pre-empt the return of Rowan Liburd to Reading when his initial loan deal runs out in the first week of April.

Danny Rowe has returned from his one month loan with Conference National side Barrow. The 20 year old impressed in three appearances for Barrow before a hamstring injury ruled him out. Commenting on his return, Gareth Ainsworth said: "Danny is a big part of my plans, I have said that all the way through his time here. Thatís why he has a three year contract. He has two years left on that now and I think you will see the best of Danny Rowe next year rather than this. I am not discounting him from featuring this season as well if he can get himself fit.".

Wanderers missed a penalty and had Marcus Bean red-carded as they ground out their second-successive 1-1 draw from their four day jaunt to the north-west - this time a stalemate at Carlisle United. Sam Wood had headed Wycombe into a 12th minute lead but the home side levelled on 26 minutes through a Charlie Wyke. The draw sees Wanderers drop a point out of the play-off places but they are still well in contention with meetings with Mansfield and Notts County to come over the Easter holidays.

Wanderers moved to bring Aston Villa goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist on loan for the rest of the season ahead of the meeting at Carlisle. The 24 year old comes in as additional cover for fellow loanee Ryan Allsop and following the ongoing injury situation with Alex Lynch. The Swiss born player has most recently been playing on loan at Solihull Moors in the Conference North. His form helped Solihull take a 9 point lead at the top of the table by January 2016. Siegrist joined Villa in 2009 when he was 16 and has represented his national team from under-17ís to under-21ís. However, he was injured in the summer of 2015 following a training ground challenge and joined Solihull on loan later in the 2015/16 campaign and impressed enough for his loan to be extended until the end of the season.

Wanderers crept back into the play-off places following a 1-1 draw at 5th placed Accrington Stanley. The Lancashire side took the lead in first-half stoppage time when Shay McCartan dinked the ball past Allsop with Wanderers claiming an offside. Gareth Ainsworth made a change early in the second-half, bringing on Gozie Ugwu for the lack lustre Rowan Liburd. Within seven minutes it was Ugwu who was involved in Wanderers' equaliser, his deflected shot falling into the path of Gary Thompson who drilled the ball home for first goal since Boxing Day at Luton.

A single moment of class from Luke O'Nein on 70 minutes secured victory over Stevenage at Adams Park to keep Wanderers in the hunt for promotion ahead of two potentially tough long haul away trips. A third successive home victory (all 1-0) came thanks to O'Nein's deft control on the edge of the box, some ball juggling and then a lefted footed strike into the bottom right corner of the Valley End net. Wycombe are now 8th in the table, a point off the play-off places and travel to 5th placed Accrington Stanley on Wednesday evening, followed by the trip to 10th placed Carlisle the following Saturday.
