Is Ainsworth heading for the ZZ Top?

Five games to go and Wycombe Wanderers are currently occupying an automatic promotion place. Ahead of the trip to Yeovil, I caught up with Gareth Ainsworth, where amongst other things, we talked about his beard:

GA Beard

Beard today. Wycombe fans will be hoping it won’t be gone tomorrow

Landing planes in tricky conditions and haunted houses – Luke O’Nien talked me through the recent Chairboys squad development day, plus Harry Kane’s dubious goal and the location of his last away goal:

I also spoke with Marcus Bean about the run in, pep talks for Jabo Ibhere and what could happen if he scores another pivotal goal this season:

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.
