Crawley Town visited Adams Park for a League Two match against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday 18th November 2017.
With Wycombe in the play of zone and Crawley near the foot of the League Two table the match was always going to be very interesting.
The first attempt on goal came from Crawley in the eighth minute however Josh Payne’s shot was too high. Two minutes later Thomas Verheydt forced a save from the Wycombe keeper.
Although both sides had chances, the first half did not see many attacking moves from either side and the score was still goalless at half time.
Eberechi Eze broke the deadlock in the fiftieth minute with a right footed shot from the centre of the box which found the bottom left corner of the Crawley goal.
From that point on Wycombe were the more dominant team. Wycombe scored a second in the seventy second minute when Craig Mackail-Smith shot into the top left corner.
Craig Mackail-Smith hammered home a third goal for Wycombe in the eighty first minute when his shot from outside the box sailed into the top right corner of the goal.
Two minutes later, in the eighty third minute, Craig Mackail-Smith completed a hat-trick this time the ball found the bottom right corner of the goal.
