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:

Doncaster Rovers 3-0 Wycombe Wanderers

Three second half goals from Doncaster Rovers were enough to see off Wycombe Wanderers at the Keepmoat Stadium. The defeat was the first loss on the road in 2018 for the Chairboys and after the game I spoke with Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:

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:

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.
