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.

Stevenage FC 0 – 0 Wycombe Wanderers

A fiercely contested match at Broadhall Way failed to produce a goal but it was an entertaining game with both sides creating chances.

The Chairboys thought they had scored in the first half when goalkeeper, Scott Brown, launched a long free kick into the penalty area which somehow eluded Stevenage stopper Joe Fryer, only to be heroically cleared off the line by a heavily bandaged Ron Henry.

Several Wycombe players were convinced the ball had crossed the line but the referee waved play on and the Chairboys finished the half strongly after what had been a slow start to the game.

The second half was dominated by Wycombe, especially after the introduction of Sam Saunders and Nathan Tyson, who replaced a quiet Eberechi Eze and an industrious Nick Freeman.

Adebayo Akinfenwa was still not 100 per cent fit but nearly broke the deadlock late in the second half with a clever back header that struck the base of the post.

Wycombe Wanderers 2 – 1 Yeovil Town

Two first half goals were enough for the Chairboys to record their first ever victory at Adams Park over Yeovil Town.

An excellent strike from Ebere Eze and a penalty from Joe Jacobson looked to set Wycombe up for a comfortable afternoon but a defensive slip allowed Francois Zoko to score just before half time.

The second half never really got going and the home side were able to see out a professional victory that lifts them back up to fifth in the table.
