With Wycombe languishing perilously close to the relegation zone today’s match again top of the table Chesterfield was always going to be interesting.
To put things in perspective Wycombe’s last win was on the 21st December away against Northampton.
With Jeffrey and McClure taking the places of Cowan-Hall and Morgan, Wycombe’s altered line up seemed to give impetus to the team and McClure had an early opportunity six minutes in but headed wide. A few minutes later Jeffrey attempted a strike from twenty five yards but his shot went wide.
The inclusion of Jeffrey and McClure seemed to lift the team with both players having chances early on but it wasn’t until the 35th minute that Wycombe were rewarded after Chesterfield’s Evett handled a cross from McClure. Kretzschmar stepped forward to take the penalty which put Wycombe ahead and effectively won the match.
On half time Chesterfield’s manager was sent to the stands for dissent leaving them with a distinct disadvantage.
In the second half Chesterfield almost equalised but Evett’s header was ruled offside.
Wycombe were by far the dominate team with 54% possession on the ball and five shots on goal (two on target) to Chesterfields one. The game featured a high number of fouls, thirty two in total, with thirteen fouls committed by Wycombe’s players.
For the first time in ten matches the Wycombe fans could celebrate a win. The attendance at Adams park was 3,356 in total with 520 from Chesterfield.
