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.

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

Wycombe Wanderers 4 – 0 Crawley Town

A ruthless second half performance from the Chairboys swept aside Crawley Town at a rainy Adams Park.

Eberichi Eze waltzed his way through the Crawley backline shortly after half-time to open the scoring and it was all Wycombe from then on.

Craig Mackail-Smith bagged a wonderful eleven minute hat-trick to complete the scoring and earn him the man of the match award.

I spoke to the striker after the game:

 

I also interviewed Gareth Ainsworth, and the Wycombe Wanderers manager was very happy to see the hard work from training paying off on match day:

On the final whistle, there were heated scenes involving the Crawley Town manager, Harry Kewell, and some of the travelling fans which required the intervention of stewards and some of the players.

The win moves Wycombe up to sixth in the table ahead of the long mid week trip to Accrington Stanley, who currently occupy the final automatic promotion place.

That game will be live on BBC Three Counties 630/1161MW and iFollow with Matt Cecil and Tom Jarvis.
