PLAYING in front of a full Hillsborough tomorrow should inspire Wycombe to bounce back after relegation said Blues boss Gary Waddock.

Owls fans have snapped up 39,000 tickets in the hope of seeing their side clinch automatic promotion to the Championship.

While Sheffield Wednesday are aiming up, Wanderers are looking down to an immediate return to League Two and playing in front of smaller crowds next year.

And Waddock said Saturday's trip up north can be used as inspiration to taste the big time yet again.

“It is one helluva game and it will probably just confirm what we are going to miss,” he said. “A big team, a big occasion and it gives you that appetite to want to taste it again and go back for a little bit more.

“We have to use that to get rid of the disappointment and move on because you can't dwell on it forever. It has happened.

“We want to go up there and give a good account of ourselves and we would like to finish the season on a high.”

Odds on a Wycombe win tomorrow are as high as 11/1 with the Owls' city rivals Sheffield United hoping to pounce on any shock.

And Waddock said his side will head to Yorkshire giving their all to cause an upset.

He said: “We have to be very professional in what we do because there is another club, not so far away from Sheffield Wednesday, who are trying to achieve the same thing. We will do the best we possibly can.”
