Wycombe Wanderers owner Rob Couhig has hinted he could take legal action against the club’s relegation from the Championship, BBC Sport reports.

The Chairboys were relegated to League One at the end of last season after finishing a point behind Derby.

Derby were fined £100,000 in June and were ordered to file restated accounts as their method of calculating the value of players was ruled invalid.

Because of the English Football League (EFL) released an interchangeable 2021-22 fixture list as there was a chance Wycombe could avoid relegation if Derby suffered a points deduction in time.

This did not happen and this week Derby entered administration giving them a 12-point deduction leaving them on -2 points at the bottom of the table.

Rob Couhig told BBC Sport: “"Not being in the Championship this year has cost us, on the surface, around £10m,"

"It has probably cost another £5-10m in residual monies that would have come from us being in the Championship for a second year. It is a £15-20m loss.

The owner was sympathetic towards Derby fans but believes Derby’s owner Mel Morris could have handled the situation differently.

Rob Couhig added: "He knew last summer, when all this was going on, where this was going to end up, that he would end up with a points deduction and they made a deliberate policy to fight it until the end so they could get to this season, keep themselves in the Championship and keep the Championship money and put us back into League One."
