Wycombe Wanderers 1-1 Barnet

| April 16, 2016


Desperately in need of points to retain a chance of being in the League Two play off positions Wycombe played Barnet at Adams Park on Saturday 16th April 2016.

Wycombe started the match in a determined manner, in just the second minute of the match Michael Harriman came close to scoring for the Blues but his right footed shot from outside the box went to the right of the Barnet goal.

Both teams could have taken the lead in what was an equally matched first half but attempts on goal were either too high or blocked.

Despite Wycombe’s best efforts the scoreline was still goalless at half time. In the first few moments of the second half Barnet nearly took the lead but the shot from Andy Yiadom was too high.

Both Max Kretzschmar and Aaron Pierre tried to claim the lead for Wycombe, but their attempts were blocked or just too high.

Wycombe finally broke the deadlock in the fifty eighth minute when Paul Hayes planted a right footed shot from the left side of the six yard box into the bottom left corner of the Barnet net.

Once in the lead Wycombe looked to put the match beyond doubt, in the sixty fifth minute Garry Thompson took a shot which narrowly missed to the right of the Barnet goal.

Disaster stuck for Wycombe when, in the seventy second minute, Andy Yiadom brought Barnet level through a right footed shot from very close range to the bottom right corner of the Wycombe goal.

In the last few moment of the game Aaron Pierre had a final chance to win the match for the Chairboys but his header from the left side of the box went to the left of the Barnet goal.

During the match Wycombe managed 56% ball possession however of their eight shots on goal Wycombe placed just three on target compared to Barnet who managed to get four of their ten shots on target.

The match saw twenty four fouls, eleven by Wycombe and thirteen from Barnet players.

Wycombe needed an outright win to keep their hopes of participating in the play-offs alive but today’s draw came as a severe blow with the Blues left outside in the play off zone in eighth position in League two with sixty three points from forty two games.

The attendance at Adams Park was 3,715.
