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:

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:

Coventry City 3 – 2 Wycombe Wanderers

Penalties, wonder goals and cards a plenty. The Friday night game at the Ricoh Arena provided much to talk about.

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.
