In the thirty second minute the Blues made the breakthrough they deserved when Paris Cowan-Hall fired from the centre of the box placing the ball in the bottom right corner of the Southend net to bring the score level.
Fifty one seconds into extra time, at the end of the first half, Wycombe took the lead thanks to a close range shot from Matt McClure (assisted by Sam Wood) into the centre of the Southend net.

Five minutes later, in the seventy second minute, Wycombe secured the match with their fourth goal courtesy of Matt McClure.
During the match Wycombe had 54% ball possession compared to Southend’s 46%. The Wanderers managed twelve shots at goal, with six on target, compared to Southend’s nine shots of which just three threatened the Wycombe goal.
Wycombe once again showed the class and charisma which has been evident this season with a decisive win over Southend. The Blues remain top of League Two, and deservedly so.
