An independent tribunal is expected to deliver its verdict soon.

Wycombe would demand to see a points hit applied to THIS SEASON’S table.

Wanderers owner Rob Couhig, an American lawyer, said: “People tell me that Derby County have issues out there.

“I don’t know whether we’re ready to go to lawyers yet.

“The message is: Watch this space.”

Derby will be looking anxiously at the case of Sheffield Wednesday.

They were deducted 12 points for this season, later reduced to six, for breaching financial rules.

It made the difference as they were relegated on Saturday after a 3-3 draw at Derby in an afternoon full of twists and turns.

Rams owner Mel Morris wants to sell the club to Spanish businessman Erik Alonso, subject to EFL approval.
