It's nearly play-off second leg time... How are the nerves?

If you are biting your fingernails to the quick, then make yourself a brew, sit back, relax - even have a nice warm bath, we have got some red towels you can dry yourself with afterwards.

Saturday's first leg was a tense affair but Wanderers go to Oakwell knowing one more win will take them to Wembley. Again!

Marc and Henry pan through all the weekend's action looking for nuggets of gold, and then cast their eye towards how the Whites can improve on Friday night.

We read out your emails, bring an update on a real title race at the top of the Fantasy Football League, and also throw in a special play-off quiz for you to play along at home. Can you beat Henry's score? It is unlikely to be a high bar, let's face it.

The Buff will continue through the summer every single week, and win, lose or draw (?) we'd like to thank each and every one of you for tuning in every week. Our numbers have gone from strength to strength this season, and Marc is starting to worry that people will forget he actually writes for a living.



This season we’ll be running a special Fantasy Football League for listeners of The Buff – and will be dishing out monthly prizes, plus recruiting some special guests to play against from the world of Wanderers.

If you want to get in contact with the show, please email or tweet Marc on @MarcIles and @Henry__Hewitt 

And please, please leave a review. We work hard to put these episodes out every single week, in-season and out, and the more feedback we get, the better the product. Having said all that, we are currently only accepting five-star ratings, as all the other ratings are broken.
