Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 Rochdale

Wycombe Wanderers came out on top of an excellent encounter against Rochdale to make it a two wins in a week at Adams Park.

A long range Bryn Morris free-kick deceived Brendan Moore in the Dale goal to give the Chairboys the lead on ten minutes and the home side were on top for the rest of the half.

Rochdale were much improved after the break and dominated possession but the Wanderers defended resolutely and scored again themselves with a trademark goal from Adebayo Akinfenwa on 66 minutes.

With the pressure lifted, Wycombe kept pressing and Fred Onyedinma powered home a header on 72 minutes for his second goal in as many games to complete the scoring.

A third home win on the spin and a clean sheet against an attack minded Rochdale, who had scored in their previous 13 away games, gives the Wanderers a spring in their step as they head to Walsall in EFL1 this Saturday.

After the game I spoke to the Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth on BBC Three Counties Radio:

Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Burton Albion

Wycombe came out on top of a close encounter to secure their first home league win of the season against Burton Albion.

The Chairboys led 2-0 at half-time following a comfortable first 45 minutes which saw a penalty cooly converted by the recalled Joe Jacobson and a trademark finish from Adebayo Akinfenwa, his 200th goal in English football.

Brewers manager Nigel Clough switched to a 4-4-2 formation for the second half, pushing Lucas Akins further forward which resulted in a well worked goal on ’47 minutes for Marvin Sordell. Despite a much improved Burton performance, Wycombe ground out a vital win to move out of the relegation zone whilst leapfrogging their opponents in the table.

After the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:

I caught up with Gareth Ainsworth ahead of the Luton Town game at Adams Park. It’s been a busy week and we spoke about The Hatters, set pieces, Fred Onyedinma, Charlie Fox and the Carabao Cup draw:

Wycombe Wanderers 2-2 Forest Green Rovers (4-3 on pens)

Wycombe Wanderers progressed into the third round of the League Cup for only the second time in their history after a penalty shoot-out victory over Forest Green Rovers at Adams Park.

With the score tied at 2-2 after ninety minutes, The Chairboys had to hold their nerve from the spot for the second round in succession. After the game, Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth spoke of the financial importance of a cup run for the club:

The Lowdown On Alex Samuel

Wycombe Wanderers have signed forward Alex Samuel on a six month contract. The 22 year old free agent was released by Stevenage at the end of last season, after making 22 appearances during an injury hit campaign.

Chairboys manger Gareth Ainsworth admitted the low key signing was “unlikely to trouble the Sky Sports ticker tape” but he will be hoping Samuel can replicate the success of Scott Kashket who signed a similar deal at Adams Park in 2016.

So who is Alex Samuel? To find out more about him I spoke to BBC Three Counties summariser for Stevenage, Deano Thompson:

The Little & Large Show Is Back

The Chairboys defeat against Bristol Rovers at Adams Park gave the home fans very little to cheer about after the Gas dominated large parts of the game and they deservedly took the three points.

However, the introduction of Scott Kashket as a second half substitute led to Wycombe making a real game of it in the closing stages.

The diminutive striker scored his first goal of the season late on after a knock down from the talismanic Adebayo Akinfenwa. It was a familiar sight from two seasons ago when Kashket and Akinfenwa were the scourge of League Two defences and Wanderers fans will be praying that Scott can stay fit and firing alongside The Beast.

After the game, I spoke with Kashket about his goal, fitness and his Panenka penalty against Northampton Town in the League Cup:

Chairboys Sneak Through On Penalties

Wycombe Wanderers snuck past League 2 Northampton Town 7-6 on penalties to progress into the second round of the League Cup for the first time in seven years.

The match was tied at 1-1 after 90 very entertaining minutes in which the Chairboys looked to be fluffing their lines in front of goal again. The breakthrough came ten minutes into the second half with a well worked move being emphatically headed home by Randell Williams and the home side visibly grew in confidence.

However, The Cobblers stuck to their guns and forced their way back into the tie with a late leveller from substitute Sam Hoskins which came shortly after Wycombe goalkeeper, Yves Ma-Kalambay, had saved a penalty.

The big keeper was the hero again in the shoot out, keeping out Jordan Turnbulls penalty  which allowed Adam El-Abd to slam home the winner in front of a sparse Adams Park crowd.

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

If, like Gareth, you would like to know who Wycombe could face in the second round, here are the numbers for the Southern section of the draw which takes place on Thursday evening.
