Wycombe first met The Posh on Saturday 15th December 1973 when the then Fourth Division leaders visited Loakes Park for a FA Cup Second Round tie. Ishtmian League Wycombe had beaten Newport County in the previous round but on this day The Posh eventually proved too strong for Brian Lee's non-League side - Larry Pritchard equalising on the stroke of half-time after John Couzens had opened the scoring for the visitors on 35 minutes, only for Couzens (62 minutes) and Jim Hall (72) to net in the second-period to seal the visitors passage to the Third Round. For Wanderers, their first ever venture into the Third Round would come 12 months later.
