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:

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:

I spoke to Gareth Ainsworth ahead of the Chairboys long trip to Bradford City. We spoke about the second half performance at Plymouth, Alex Samuel, conceding early goals and an injuries update:

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:

Wycombe Wanderers 1-2 Bristol Rovers

Wycombe Wanderers were made to pay the price for a slow start against their old friends, Bristol Rovers. Two first half corners led to the Chairboys conceding two cheap goals and they had a mountain to climb in the second half. The comeback looked very unlikely until a late Scott Kashket goal provided some hope for the home fans but it was too little, too late.

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