Luton Town 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers

Luton Town deservedly marched into the second round of the FA Cup after sweeping Wycombe Wanderers aside at Kenilworth Road.

An excellent first half strike from Andrew Shinnie put The Hatters on the front foot and The Chairboys were really up against it in the second half after an error by Adam El-Abd opened the door for Harry Cornick to double the home sides advantage.

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

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.

Wycombe Wanderers 3-2 Scunthorpe United

Wycombe Wanderers fought back from 2-0 down against Scunthorpe United to win their second successive home game in EFL1.

The Chairboys were facing a mountain to climb after just seven minutes as The Iron waltzed into a two goal lead but goals from Dominic Gape and Fred Onyedinma set the game up for a thrilling conclusion.

A home victory had looked unlikely after Chairboys goalkeeper Ryan Allsop was shown a straight red card for scything down Ike Ugbo, a foul which the referee judged to be denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. However, the experienced Wanderers striker Craig Mackail-Smith capitalised on a defensive error by The Iron’s skipper Rory McArdle to calmly take all three points in injury time.

Ainsworth Pre Coventry City

Wycombe Wanderers head to the Ricoh Arena to take on a Coventry City side who have won the last five meetings between the two clubs.

The Chairboys are buoyed by their away form, losing just two of the last 17 on the road, whilst Coventry are still contending with off the pitch issues regarding their home.

Wycombe will be without the injured Anthony Stewart and Nathan Tyson but Sido Jombati is available after serving a one match suspension for collecting five yellow cards this season.

Ahead of the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth:

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.

Fleetwood Town 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers

A windy affair ended in a draw at The Highbury Stadium as The Chairboys fought back in the second half.

The hardy Wycombe fans who made the long midweek journey would have been buoyed by the display of the talismanic Adebayo Akinfenwa, who has put his goalscoring drought behind him with three goals in as many games.

Northampton Town 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers

A fantastic Scott Kashket strike was enough for Wycombe Wanderers to open this seasons Checkatrade Trophy campaign with a win and bank a useful £10k in prize money.

The Chairboys utilised their favoured 4-3-3 formation and made ten changes in what was an incredibly attacking line up. L2 Northampton were a poor opposition in the first half and Wycombe played some decent stuff with Sam Saunders orchestrating proceedings.

As expected, the Cobblers came out in the second half with a different approach and made it more of a game but rarely troubled the Wycombe back line.

After the final whistle, I spoke with the Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth for BBC Three Counties Radio:
