League Two Playoff Semi-Final First Leg Opta Facts

Plymouth v Wycombe

Wycombe have won their last three away trips to Plymouth, keeping a clean sheet in each game.

Plymouth last kept a clean sheet against the Chairboys at home in May 2003 (a run of six games).

The away side has won each of the last five between these two, with the home side failing to score.

Plymouth have featured in playoffs twice before, losing in the third tier semi-finals in 1993/94 and winning the fourth tier playoffs in 1995/96.

Wycombe won the fourth tier playoffs in 1993/94, but have fallen at the semi-final stage in their two most recent appearances (2005/06 and 2007/08).

Only Matt Tubbs (21) and Jamie Cureton (19) scored more goals in the regular season than Reuben Reid managed (18).

Wycombe's 84 points is the highest they've recorded in a Football League season. Only one side has failed to be promoted from this tier with that high a tally (MK Dons in 2006/07).

No player has recorded more assists than Bobby Reid in League Two this season (10). Wycombe's Paul Hayes also has 10.


Stevenage v Southend

Stevenage's 4-2 win over Southend in February was their first in all competitions over them (D1 L3).

Southend have never failed to score against Stevenage in those five previous meetings.

This is the third season in five that Stevenage have been involved in the playoffs. They were promoted from League Two in 2010/11 by beating Torquay, but lost in the League One playoff semi-final to Sheffield United the following season.

Southend haven't been promoted in the last three appearances in them (2007/08, 2011/12 and 2013/14), since their triumph in the fourth tier over Lincoln City in 2004/05, falling at the semi-final each time.

Stevenage scored more goals in the opening 15 minutes of the regular League Two season than any other side (12).

Phil Brown led Hull to Championship playoff success in 2007/08 over Bristol City, but lost to Burton in the semi-finals of the League Two playoffs last season.

Stevenage scored 32 times through their midfielders this season, a League Two-high.

Only once have Southend picked up more points from a league season (85 in 1990/91) than they have this campaign (84).

Barry Corr has scored in three of his four league appearances against Stevenage.
