Wycombe Wanderers 4 – 3 Carlisle United

Ten man Wycombe struck twice in injury time to secure three points against mid-table Carlisle United.

The winner came from the most unlikely of sources too, with Marcus Bean volleying home with virtually the last kick of the game.

Here’s how it unfolded:


Regular readers of these pages will know that I’ve been banging on about Beany scoring for some time now and I underlined this insane optimism just two weeks ago on twitter:

Chairboys sign Curtis Thompson on loan from Notts County

Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has made his fourth signing of the January transfer window, bringing midfielder Curtis Thompson to Adams Park on a loan deal from promotion rivals, Notts County, for the rest of the season.

Thompson, 24, has made 100 appearances for the Magpies since joining as a scholar in 2009 but has been frozen out of the team at Meadow Lane, making just four first team appearances this season.

Speaking about the combative midfielder, Ainsworth said: “Curtis is someone who impressed me when he’s played against us and I’ve kept tabs on him ever since, so I’m really pleased to be able to bring him here and work with him to help unlock his potential.

“He’s a tenacious midfielder – someone who can win the ball and give us extra strength in the midfield. We’re in a great position in the league and need competition for places all over the park to make sure we can consistently pick up the results we need to have a successful end to the season.

“I know Curtis is looking forward to getting some minutes under his belt and we may need to be patient with him while he recaptures some match sharpness, but I think there’s plenty of talent there and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.”

Thompson is eligible for selection for Wycombe’s next match on Tuesday evening, when they travel to table topping Luton Town.

Crewe Alexandra 2 – 3 Wycombe Wanderers

3-2 to the Wanderers against Crewe for the second time this season and with both games providing injury time winners.

Here’s the story of the game (including a brief retrospective of the winner at Adams Park earlier in the season):


It was all too much for the home manager, David Artell, who was sent off for his protests as the Chairboys went 2-1 up on ’82 minutes, after what looked to be an obvious handball in the build up.

Crucially, both the referee and his assistant didn’t see it and the bespectacled Crewe manager was dispatched to the stands after going over the top in his protestations.

His glasses would have been steaming up again ten minutes later as after Crewe had scored on ’88 minutes, it looked like they were on for their first draw in 25 league games.

It was not to be, as a defensive horror show opened the door for Craig Mackail-Smith to score his ninth goal of the season and snatch the winner for the Chairboys deep into injury time.

Wild celebrations erupted in the away end as the win made sure Wycombe Wanderers remained hot on the heels of the top three in League Two.

It had been a sad week for the club and the game overall, with the sudden death of former player and pioneer, Cyrille Regis.

Football has a strange habit of throwing up poignant little statistics and just prior to the impeccably observed minutes silence for Cyrille before kick off, the PA announcer informed us all that the last time Wycombe had won a league game at Gresty Road was in 1994, and Cyrille scored the winner that day.

Football can be a funny old game sometimes.

Wycombe Wanderers 1 – 2 Mansfield Town

Mansfield Town came from behind to take the three points with a second half onslaught at Adams Park.

The Chairboys dominated the first period but were made to pay for only being one goal up at the break with Adebayo Akinfenwa on the scoresheet once again.

With the wind also a factor in the game, The Stags were electric in the second half and well taken goals from Alfie Potter and former Chairboy Lee Angol proved to be enough despite Wycombe throwing everything at their opponents during the closing stages.

After the game, I spoke to the Wycombe Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth:
