Wycombe match report
12 September 2015 22:27 Post ID: #71402
A thrilling first half from Argyle deservedly won the points against Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park.

Argyle manager Derek Adams once again favoured his 4-2-3-1 formation with fit-again Reuben Reid leading the attack and the striker was unstoppable during the first half, scoring one with Jake Jervis scoring the second to give the Greens a sweet 2-1 win against the Chairboys, who beat Argyle during the play-offs last season,.
2 scruffy goals = 3 points and a fully deserved win!

The start of the match was delayed for 6 minutes while the referee Tim Robinson clarified the GPS tracking device the Wycombe players wear wearing under their shirts.

The first half belonged to Argyle while the second half was more of a battle and a few scares.

We played some entertaining and attacking football during the first 45 minutes, Wycombe couldn't cope with Reid with every attack going through him.
We took the lead from a Graham Carey corner helped on by Peter Hartley Reid finishing the move in a goal mouth scramble.
We looked like we would score every time we went forward and should have scored more.
Carey had a long range shot just go over and Reid got to the byline but couldn't pick out a player and had to settle for a corner.

We conceded a sloppy goal from a Wycombe corner, we failed to clear it and Gregg Wylde had a weak challenge on the edge of the area and former Green Jason Banton (of course) blasted in from close range.

We didn't stop attacking and could have scored five but had to settle for just one more goal which proved to be the winner. A Carey free kick wasn't cleared and a defender attempted to kick the ball away but it hit Jake Jervis and crept in. At the time Jervis was sat on the floor. A scrappy goal but who is complaining?

For the second half we had to show out battling qualities but still looked to attack. Craig Tanner replaced Wylde and was the better player.

Curtis Nelson allowed the ball to run through thinking Luke McCormick would collect it except he didn't and the Wycombe striker nipped in and fired past McCormick, the ball hit the post and rolled along the line and was cleared. Phew, that was close! McCormick gave Nelson a real bollocking which seemed over the top in my opinion.
That was the only clear chance for Wycombe and came about from our mistake.

We manned the barricades and kept out Wycombe for the remaining minutes including a never ending 7 minutes of injury time.

There were great scenes at the end with the fans and players and Adams who came up to the fans. It does feel that something special is happening at our club.

Carl McHugh and Harim Boateng were magnificent in midfield and were always there to clear the danger, both of them managed to somehow get their foot in and get the team moving forward.

Reid was unstoppable during the first half and brings so much to the team, he played the Wycombe defence on his own.

The back four were very strong with McCormick making a world class save just before half time.

Wylde really struggled and had a habit of losing possession. Carey was dangerous at set pieces but was a little bit anonymous in open play.

The fans were fantastic and really got behind the team, they were the loudest I've heard this season.

The players and Adams all came to the fans at the end and applauded them with McCormick giving Adams a huge hug!
The win really meant something to the fans and players, almost a statement of intent.

After being the victims of Wycombe's habit of time wasting and using the black arts last season it was amusing to see the frustrated antics of manager Gareth Ainsworth in the dug-out in the closing stages of the match. Right back atcha!

Well played Argyle and well supported by the Green Army!
