Wycombe confident there is ‘no case to answer’ over Phillips saga

Wycombe Wanderers say the club are confident they have no case to answer as they face possible legal action from Bristol Rovers, reports Bucks Free Press

Rovers have today announced they plan to contest the Football Association’s decision not to deduct points from Wanderers in the wake of breaches of transfer regulations when Wycombe sold Matt Phillips to Blackpool in 2010.

The Pirates claim the transfer handed Wycombe an unfair advantage last season.

Wanderers were fined £10,000, but Rovers said in a statement this afternoon they should have been docked points.

Had that occurred, Bristol Rovers would have survived the drop from the Football League at Wycombe’s expense.

In a short statement issued this evening, Wycombe Wanderers said:

“We well, as always, fully cooperate with the Football League and the Football Association in any investigation into this matter, but we are fully confident there is no case to answer.

“There will be no further comment from the club at this stage.”
